I sent out wedding invites just over a week ago and RSVPs have started coming back! Add the cake tasting my mom and I went to Saturday, and the wedding is coming together quite nicely.
My biggest surprise recently was when I got my first "celebrating from afar" response. It was a definite bummer! It's understandable; in fact we're planning on receiving many regrets. If you follow general wedding planning rules, only about 80% of people invited to weddings end up attending. Though from what I've heard it's anywhere from 50% to 95%. So I guess we'll see what happens.
