What is the nicest way to phrase an email note saying that we need your rsvp! We have an online rsvp system on our wedding website or a phone number people can call. People don’t even have to walk a response card out to the mailbox! Rsvp’s are due on Sunday and we still have yet to recieve over 1/2 of them. We want to send out a polite gentle email reminder this week to those who have not yet Rsvp’d, but I don’t want to be pushy. Any suggestions?

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 :/
