How soon after the RSVP date would you contact non-responders? I’m a fairly prompt person and as the RSVP date was this past Saturday, I’m anxious to start tracking down people… what do you think?

I think you are good anytime after, but I also know stragglers, so I voted 3 days after… 🙂

I treated my RSVP date like a postmark deadline, so I waited a week before contacting non-responders.

So long as you go about it politely, I think any of those answers is ok.

We started 2 days after. And there were so many who were like “Oh, yeah, I just put that in the mail yesterday…”
Which means they were going to be late. Whatever. Most of those actually put it in the mail the morning after we called, from what I could tell.
Hardly anybody actually puts theirs in the mail on the last possible day, so any that you don’t have are going to need chasing down because they’ve totally blanked on it or don’t care.

we had over 80 people who hadn’t resonded, so i started bugging people the day after. a few said their response was in the mail, but most of them had completely forgotten and several were hard to reach/took their sweet time getting back to me so i’m glad we didn’t wait.

I started immediately….I was probably kind of annoying about it, but I felt that 6 weeks was more than enough time for people to decide if they were coming and respond accordingly.
