I sent this to people the weekend after the RSVP deadline passed- works wonders.

“Hey- Just wanted to check on your RSVP for our wedding on July 13th. We know how easy it is to let these dates get away from you, however we need to give our caterer a final number of guests. If we haven’t received your reply card by June 23rd, we’ll have to assume that you are unable to attend (which would be very sad!). Hope you’ll be able to join us on the big day. :)”

We (sort-of) jokingly decided that if we don’t hear back from someone, then they show up anyway, they’ll be sitting at an extra table in the back and not be served a meal.  They can nibble on the fruits/veggies/cheeses during cocktail hour and help themselves to the open bar, but if you can’t manage to put your name on a card & circle a meal choice, then sorry buddy- you don’t get a meal.

We got 10 out of 40. We had to track EVERYONE down last week, most of them just forgot, some had moved without telling us, but we only got 3 no’s out of the whole group who didn’t send them back. I’m sorry you’re having to deal with this, I know how frustrating it is when people can’t do a simple task, it almost feels like you’re disrespected 🙁

Yeah, I feel you….  I have two weeks left and my list is still looking pretty sparse….  Every day I have a little rant to myself about how easy it is to fill out and put a prestamped postcard in a mailbox!  

I think I might follow @rebwana:  ‘s lead!  I also saw this on offbeat bride.  For all those missing ones that I have or can aquire emails I think I might do it!

We set a really early RSVP-by date for just this reason and now we’re justified! We are 12 days from our RSVP-by date and EXACTLY half of the guests have not responded. 2 gave me verbal “no” s and 6-8 gave me verbal “yes”s but I do NOT want to play the “but you said you were coming” “no I didn’t!” game. I gave you people super simple cards and included the postage.
