It’s easy to ask people in person and to ask family members to bug one another.
But what about people you don’t see as often? Email, text, phone calls? What worked best for you when getting that final head count?

However you would normally contact them.

It depends on each relationship, but for the most part people are more responsive on the phone. It’s a lot harder to ignore you when you are on the phone than to ignore a text.

If they’re someone you’re close to, phone them. If it’s someone close to your fiance or your parents, have them call. Emails and texts are easier to ignore than someone saying on the phone: “Hi Potential Guestie. Time has passed on RSVPs and the numbers are due in. Sorry to push, but need to know if we can count on you or not.”

I’ve been bugging people via Facebook message (if they have Facebook). That way I know whether or not they’ve received and read my message. If they don’t respond, then I’ll start calling them if I have their number. If I still don’t get an answer, I’m going to kindly inform them that they are no longer invited to the wedding. My ushers will have a list of people who haven’t RSVP’d, and they will be the last to be seated.
