I’d wait until after the deadline and then contact each person. Have a bridesmaid or a parent help you make the phone calls.

That’s what I”m planning to do.  Instead of a blanket email, I’m planning on emailing each person individually and then calling if I don’t hear back.

What is the date your caterer needs your number? You are still 2 months away and it just seems a bit early for people to have to respond. Maybe people arent responding because they think they still have time – our RSVPs were due 5 weeks before our wedding and many didnt come until the 3 week mark and my guess was that people just thought they still had time!

I would suggest calling people first and then if you cant get in touch with them, send an email to each individual. I know its awkward (and annoying!) but I think its the best way to do it!

.. a friendly reminder;

Please RSVP when you have a moment.  We are very excited and can’t wait to hear from everyone.  You can simply RSVP online for your convience.  Thank you


It could work I think. If I received it I would have said “oh damn I forgot to rsvp let me do it now”   Just last month I didn’t attend to a wedding because I forgot to rsvp on time. I wish they sent a reminder :/
