I remember having to do that. There werea few people that just kep tsaying they didn’t know, and just over a week before I got fed up and told them I had to  have numbers in that day and if they didn’t respond I was counting them as a no. Then there was one family of 7 that rsvp’d the night before the wedding… when we were already at the venue… with no internet or phone service.

If they don’t respond, I would suggest sending them a message saying that if they don’t respond by __ date you’re counting them as a a no. Its the only way to deal with some people.

@FutureMrsJohnston:  

I had to chase down about 50 rsvp’s……evidently my guests are super lazy.

 

I just actually got an RSVP today, uh hello wedding is in 5 days!

I had to track down probably 70-80% of our RSVPs. Not my idea of a good time.

@FutureMrsJohnston:  I definitely had some bride rage moments about RSVPs.  I just think it is SO rude.  All in all, we had like 20 couples (so 40 people) who just couldn’t be bothered to put their RSVP in the mail.  A few of my friends wouldn’t answer texts either, so I finally called them.  They of course aren’t coming, but why do people think it is better to NOT reply, than just to reply no?  They’ve clearly never planned a wedding.

Its incredibly rude.  When my fiance and I did guest list, we told BOTH moms anyone they wanted on list, they had to provide name, address and either phone number or email, and they would have to help chase their guests for response.
