I have 45/60 RSVPs my wedding is 3 months away; I wonder if people won’t even bother to send their rsvps and come anyway
is it better to underestimate that way you dont pay extra? or count them in and risk losing money?
I was thinking of those who never rsvp’d despite reminders as a no; I’m sure they can drum up extra food right?

Are you having a buffet or a plated dinner? If it’s a buffet you might be okay to underestimate a little. If it’s plated, you probably need as accurate numbers as possibe.

Call the people who haven’t rsvpd and try to get more accurate numbers.

it’s a very formal sit-down dinner; I’m planning to call everyone 2 1/2 weeks before the wedding

Your final numbers are probably due 72 hours before. I would wait until your 2 1/2 week point and then call your remaining guests. I will be doing this since we are paying a considerable amount per person and I need to know a final number. For now, give a conservative estimate.

You still have plenty of time. Calm down, the caterer won’t need numbers until maybe 2 weeks out, probably less.

I’d call those who haven’t responded 3 weeks to a month before.
This would elicit SOME response and save your wallet!
