I’d say it’s safe to start contacting them tomorrow since your deadline is today.

@vanike:  i waited about 3 days post-deadline to start contacting people, since some people aren’t super smart and put them in the mail ON the deadline date.

I started contacting people the same night of our deadline.  We used WeddingWire for our RSVPs meaning we saw responses instantly.  I figured that if our guests couldn’t be bothered to RSVP in the six weeks since they received invitations, they probably weren’t going to do so in the final hours.  FI and I also had a tight turnaround in needing to supply final counts to some of our vendors, so that factored into jumping on this issue immediately.  We were waiting on 19 I think out of 141.

If you’re doing mail RSVPs, I would give people a couple days, then start calling. It’s such a pain, but it’s just one of those annoying things you have to do.
