    It depends on your RSVP date.  If it hasn’t passed yet, I wouln’t start until it is your RSVP date or later. 

    I will tell you, I did it online or by phone and a lot of what I had to do was take RSVPs anyway they were given to me. IE if someone told me they were coming even in casual conversation, I would ask if their spouce/SO was coming with them.  If they said yes, I would mark it down.

    nestle:  I have learned people are horrible at RSVPing, even the self addressed envelopes people can’t figure it out.  We ended up contacting everyone we didn’t hear from by the RSVP date, you might find a lot of people didn’t even receive an invite about 1/3 of our invites got lost in the mail.

    Lbward6:  WHAT! Why? I just mailed mine this morning and now I’m terrified! 

    nestle:  I wouldn’t, but I would start contacting people directly (facebook message, calling them, texting, whatever works) in about 10 days or so since your wedding is so close!

    MrsTywinLannister:  I know, such a bummer when it was like $8 an invite!  I have lost all hope in the USPS.

    nestle:  think you should have included an email address.  I think a group email (BCC) asking for people to reply with their RSVP is better than a FB event.

    Lbward6:   They may have been “lost” but I suspect it is in piles of paper or the  recycling bin. And some people will say this to appear less rude for not replying. I suppose anything is possible, but I’d be skeptical. 

    nestle: You’ve already indicated how you would like people to RSVP.  Give them until your deadline, and then start making calls.

    weddingmaven: maybe, but we know a bunch bounced back and some people moved. Also, we resent invitations to the people who’s invites got lost and they responded.

    nestle:  Wait until the RSVP date. Some people take that seriously. “I have until nov 12 to respond. “
