People probably haven’t responded because they don’t know their Labor Day plans. If I got a wedding invitation for September right now, I honestly would probably hold off on responding until the end of the RSVP window so I’d have a firmer idea of my plans. 

Did you send Save the Dates?

Your RSVP date is far too early. It should be a month out, tops.

Also, I don’t think the fact that you haven’t gotten many back and it’s still 2 weeks until the deadline is a bad sign.  Most people wait until the last minute to send them back (if they make the deadline at all).  And most people don’t buy gifts until the last minute.

Definitely do not mass facebook post or contact anyone yet.  You can contact them after the deadline has passed, but you can’t start bugging them now.

Agreed with MidwestBride2012. It wasn’t too early to send invitations, by any means, but the RSVP deadline is really early for a September wedding. Be prepared that a lot of your RSVPs will just come in quite a bit later than you wanted.

Do you have a website/facebook event/email listing? It’d be a good idea to just remind everyone, and continue to bug them because people are forgetful creatures.

Yeah honestly it’s still a bit too early. It’s 2.5 months away, so people aren’t sure what their plans will be yet. Most don’t even send out invitations until 8 weeks out let alone want a response by then. Give them some time. Maybe once the deadline passes and you haven’t heard, start talking to people to get an idea on their plans?

Typically, invites go out 6-8 weeks before the wedding, and RSVPs are due 3-4 weeks before the wedding.  So you are WAY early on both fronts.  No need to panic yet  🙂
