Typically, most will arrive in a rush on the last day they are due in. You don’t do anything prior to that date about following up. You wait until a couple days after the due date (to allow for any last minute replies that may have missed the postmark date) to call people to find out if they are coming or not, only if you have not received anything from them. If you still don’t get a response, count them as a no vote and move on.

wow, that is early to be sending them out, you have a LONG time before the rsvp date still, a month and a half! I think you certainly can follow up but not yet. If you don’t hear anything by the first week of May you could probably send out an email just making sure people got them. Even so you still have an entire month to wait.

No offense, and I know you’re eager, but that’s way early. I had people gripe about mine being “due” less than a month before my reception. Cut people some slack. At least wait until after the requested due date to follow up.

Its a bit rude to chase people for their rsvp before the rsvp date. Follow up 2 days afterwards to gently remind people and to make sure they got their invite.

Did you give people an online RSVP option? We didn’t send out return RSVP’s, but instead required people to RSVP on our website. We have our contact list in a spreadsheet that also includes an email address for each party. As we get closer to our required RSVP-by date, we have the option to send an email to those who have yet to respond. We have a lot of people coming from out of town, so I am sure there will be a lot of people who will wait until the last minute to decide if they are going to come or not. I wouldn’t stress until the last minute. Hopefully the majority of your guests will understand the courtesy of responding, and will save you the hassle. Best of luck!
