    @MsGinkgo:  i would also suggest doing some sort of spread sheet.

    I went onto excel and wrote down all the names of the guests invited, then i put a yes or no column. As the RSVPs start to come in, check them off. Then by the time the deadline comes, you will know who to call.

    Then make another spreadsheet for seating arrangements. Write down all the names of people who have responded and then as you place at a table, highlight them..dont erase them bc then you will want to check to make sure everyone has been placed at a table.
