I think what you are looking to say has no polite way of saying it.  You should just stick with the normal RSVP and give yourself a week or two buffer of when you actually need them back. When people haven’t replied (trust me they won’t) You then send and email or a facebook message that says, “We didn’t receive your reply card, there will only be enough chairs and food for those that RSVP” At that point it would be appropriate.

Could you just call the people that don’t respond? We’re kind of hoping people send them back since we’ll be putting stamps on them but I know we’ll probably get no responses as well as people that just tell us.  To make sure we don’t go over budget/capacity though we did add a line that says “___ out of ___ guests invited are attending” so we can write in the number.

@milesbella: I would just put “Please RSVP by ____” and give yourself a time buffer.

After that date (and a few days) have passed, get on the phone and call all of those who haven’t RSVP’d to get their responses. Enlist FI, you mom, FMIL, etc if you have to.
