i am about to write a message to those who have not RSVP’d to my wedding. the RSVP date was March 5th. Since I asked people to RSVP on our wedding website, I am going to send them a message from our website with a link to t he RSVP.
I got stuck on the title of the message. Should I put:
Please RSVP for our wedding
RSVP not yet received
RSVP follow up
or any other suggestions are welcome!

I like RSVP follow up – it sounds the most pleasant

I did the same, but put “need your RSVP” in the subject line. My own man of honor hasn’t even RSVP’d yet!

RSVP follow up – Its the most neutral

are there a lot of people that didn’t rsvp? we followed up with people personally who didn’t respond, which might work a little better if your people weren’t responsive the first time around–it’s harder to ignore a personal message. like, i wrote personal emails to a couple people we didn’t get responses from who i knew well– here’s the text from one email with the personal info removed–
I hope all is well!
I was just writing because we hadn’t gotten your rsvp to our wedding yet. We just moved to New York, so some of our mail may have gotten lost or delayed in the moving process. However, we need to give meal choice selections to our caterer pretty soon (which are: steak, fish, or vegetarian) …Sorry to be a nag, haha! 🙂
Thanks, and I hope to see you, your wife, and your son soon!!”

I would call them. Since they already didn’t RSVP on time, I would not want to wait to see if they reply to the message.

thanks everyone. I think I will use “RSVP follow up” since it feels the most neutral and got the most votes.
@finnaroo: i might send personal messages to each one so i can use their name. although the message will still be pretty similar and needs a subject line!
at this point if people haven’t booked, I am pretty sure they aren’t coming. But there are a few that have said in the past they were hoping to come or what not, so i wanted to find out if they made a final decision. if i still don’t hear from them, i can then assume that they have not booked plane tickets to Jamaica and will be at our wedding! and even if someone did do that, its not the end of the world, as long as i find out a couple of days before hand!! its just a little frustrating that so many people could not bother to RSVP, even if it is a destination wedding!
