I hated this part of RSVPs!!  I’d give it another day or two (*just in case* they mailed it on the day it was supposed to be returned by), then start making phone calls or emailing.  Maybe recruit a family member to help you out?  I had a few people tell my parents they were coming instead of sending the RSVP back (why?  I’m not sure!).  Best of luck!

Did you put a deadline on the RSVP? If not, find out when your venue needs the final headcount and start calling two weeks prior to that date. That’s what I am doing. My guests get until June 9 to RSVP before I start calling.

My deadline was today and we still have aboutt 40 that are unaccounted for. Most of then are fanily so I am just assuming they are coming because they have all told me at one point or another they will be there/can’t wait. I would give a few more days- it is called snail mail for a reason and then make some calls/emails. Just be “casual” about it. Most people will probably be like, “oh yeah, we’re coming- forgot about the rsvp.” I;m giving them till Friday because I meet with the venue next week for finalizations.

They may be in the mail, I would wait a few days and see how many you get. Many people just get them in the mail by the rsvp day.
