@LizzyR:  You should wait until September 9. A lot of RSVPs come in the last week or just slightly over the deadline. Plus I feel it is kind of rude to call before. It sort of looks like desparation or annoying. Anyway, wait until September 9 and then start calling them 🙂

I would actually wait until Sept 13 or 14. We had a ton of guests mail there RSVPs out on the actual deadline so we received them a couple of days after. But absolutely wait until the actual due date.

@LizzyR:  It depends who your missing people are. My mom sent out a FYI email to her family reminding them that the RSVP deadline was 3 days away. It worked. I waited until 3 days after to harass everyone.
