We sent out our invites 6 weeks ago and gave a deadline which is in 2 weeks time but so far we only had 10% reply.
We thought we would get some nos quickly and were planning to send out invite to our B list as soon as we got these but only had 1 lot of no and 2 maybes.
We have spoken to parents and siblings who argue they don't need to reply and refuse to send a email to our wedding email so that takes us up to 20%
The other 80% we don't know if they are coming or if we even have the correct address for them.
When do we chase after the deadline and would it be tacky to cover up the deadline date on our invites to anyone off our B list that we will invite after this date as it going to be expensive getting a new date printed on them.
