RSVP deadline was today… still have a good 50 unaccounted for guests….. most annoyed by my fiance’s sister who literally just got married like a month ago… we sent her rsvp back to her by the deadline, and didnt even get one from her. she should know what i’m going through here! ugh! (not to mention, we addressed/stamped the envelopes for these people, and sent out save the dates WAY in advance- they know if theyre coming or not by now…)
so what is proper etiquette here? track these people down? facebook/text? i know there are a lot of people that are more than likely coming, but i still need to know for sure to make food/favor arrangements. ideas?

I hated this part of RSVPs!! I’d give it another day or two (*just in case* they mailed it on the day it was supposed to be returned by), then start making phone calls or emailing. Maybe recruit a family member to help you out? I had a few people tell my parents they were coming instead of sending the RSVP back (why? I’m not sure!). Best of luck!

Did you put a deadline on the RSVP? If not, find out when your venue needs the final headcount and start calling two weeks prior to that date. That’s what I am doing. My guests get until June 9 to RSVP before I start calling.

My deadline was today and we still have aboutt 40 that are unaccounted for. Most of then are fanily so I am just assuming they are coming because they have all told me at one point or another they will be there/can’t wait. I would give a few more days- it is called snail mail for a reason and then make some calls/emails. Just be “casual” about it. Most people will probably be like, “oh yeah, we’re coming- forgot about the rsvp.” I;m giving them till Friday because I meet with the venue next week for finalizations.

They may be in the mail, I would wait a few days and see how many you get. Many people just get them in the mail by the rsvp day.
