Start tracking people down for RSVP’s after the deadline? I’m 4 days out from the deadline I gave my guests on the RSVP’s and I still have 15 of them out. Should i wait a day or two after the deadline in case people sent it out on the deadline date or is the day after fare game to be all white on rice on these guests? 😉

It really depends on when your numbers are due. I would give them a few days to a week and then start calling.

I think I gave them a week and a half. I had a few people RVSVP late, but the majority just said “Oh! I forgot! Yes we’re coming!” when I contacted them.

@Quicksand: We’re not there yet, but I plan to start calling people that day. We’re sending our invitations out a bit early, so they will have about 6-7 weeks from getting the invitation to the RSVP deadline.

I think we gave people a week. We did have quite a few trickle in after the deadline so I assume people waited until that date to mail it.

I waited for 4-5 days after the deadline, in case our guests are flaky but well-intentioned like my husband and me and sent it in around the deadline.

We gave everybody a week. Mail can be slow, people forget.

i would not contact anyone until the day after the RSVP deadline. I had a bride ( that I wasn’t very close to) call me 4 days before the RSVP deadline asking me what my answer was in an irritated kind of tone. In my mind, I still had time and I thougth why is this crazy lady calling me like I did something wrong? At that point, if you are going to make personal call, why even send an RSVP card…..
