I feel like people understand that RSVPs are required for weddings, and that anybody who tends to flaunt that rule would probably flaunt it even if you stated it was required. I don’t think it’d be rude to include it because I feel like it’s usually understood. It might be more fruitful to put your energy toward following up aggressively with people and spreading the word that there will be assigned seating.

Very frustrating!

I agree that you should just spread the word that there will be assigned seating (hence the need for replies), and make your reply-by date early enough to allow yourself time to follow up with those who did not reply in time.  Some people just don’t do it, regardless of how you spell it out for them!

Ditto on just following up by phone.  Yup, it can be a pain and take awhile, but that’s how it goes.  I’d ask your fiance to help if nobody else will!

For those people that didn’t RSVP to my wedding, I just sent them a short email asking if they received my invite alright and to ask if they’ll be able to make it. All of them responded within 24 hours.

For me, I don’t like talking on the phone, so this worked out just fine for me. I only called the few elder guests who did not have email.
