When do you have to give numbers to the caterers? You should start tracking down atleast a week before that number is due

Buttercup014:  A month before your wedding is more than enough time for tracking your guests. My RSVP deadline was 3 weeks before my wedding. That gave me one week to track people down. I had to give the headcount two weeks before the wedding.

I only had to reach out to less than a handful of people (thank goodness for online RSVPs).

I only had 3 of 100 to track down, actuallly. 

My wedding was May 30 and my RSVP date was May 1st but it could have been much earlier. You probably only need to set aside a week for tracking down rsvps. Also, don’t be afraid to ask your mom/dad/mother-in-law/fiance to do some if you have a lot.

Buttercup014:  My RSVP Deadline is today and I’ve got about 2.5 weeks until the wedding (my final numbers aren’t due until the week of the wedding, so I’ve got about a 10 day window)….but I’ve only received about 1/2 the RSVPs back.

I’m starting to see why no one in my family ever does assigned seating at weddings: no one bothers to RSVP, so you don’t know who to assign seats to!

Our RSVP deadline is actually today (exactly 1 month before the wedding) and we only have 1 couple that did not RSVP but we figure aren’t coming, plus my cousin who never sent hers in but verbally told us she couldn’t come.
