    Screw it! If they don't respond, this reduces your guest list, thereby saving your money. : (0 votes)

    I would probably contact those who haven’t RSVP’d and let them know that some people haven’t gotten their invitations and make sure they have received them.

    @KelannaDC:  If you have time between the RSVP deadline and other deadlines that you have to tell vendors guest counts for I would wait until the deadline passes.  

    Otherwise you’re just hassling guests that haven’t had a chance to respond yet.  If you hear from someone before like your friend obviously it’s fine to explain the situation before the RSVP deadline but where everyone else is concerned I would wait.

     

    How many RSVPs do you have back?  I think we had about 75% back at 10 days before the deadline.  We had to hunt down several of DH’s friends for answers.

    Yikes, you sent them out 18 days before the RSVP deadline? Allowing for delivery, that’s cutting it pretty close. I would wait until the RSVP deadline to worry about RSVPs, but it might not hurt to make some calls explaining that some of the invitations may have been lost in the mail and you wanted to make sure the guests had received them.

    I’d wait until the deadline passes.  Sometimes things get held up and although I completely understanding the worry and eagerness to get your responses back, people are getting them so give it a little more time unless you need to know your numbers now.

    @KelannaDC:  I would ask if people recevied them. Either an email where I blind copied everyone in or by phone call. Just be clear that you never received your own and are worried they might not have received their’s… just so it’s clear that you’re not houding them for their RSVP before the deadline.

    @KelannaDC:  I was just thinking about your wedding. I meant to look through the recaps to see! lol I wanted to see you in your pretty dress! 🙂

     

    Don’t stress yet, give it a few more days. You’ll prob have to track down RSVPs anyways (unfortunately).

    I wouldn’t worry.  I know in Canada domestic mail can be 7-10 business days depending.  I know that local is usually within a couple of days but I’ve seen stuff take crazy amounts of time. 

    Wait until the RSVP deadline and then make some calls to those who haven’t RSVP’d yet.
