Our RSVPs are due today actually. We are still missing about 1/4 of them.  I don’t know what is proper, but I plan on starting to call this weekend.

We have a 1/15 deadline, but the invites went out a month ago… still missing 61 out of 200 RSVPs… but we’re also getting a 55/45 percentage split on yeses and nos (it’s an out of state wedding for most of the invited guests).  I’m getting kind of frustrated because now we’re only getting about 1 card back per day and I really doubt that there will be a flood of responses next week.


I’d also love to know what you guys are doing about people who email you but don’t send the card back… I feel weird marking someone as attending if all I get is an email…

I think a lot of people recommend giving a grace period of 2-3 days past the RSVP-by date, because a lot of people drop the cards in the mail on that date. If you had a lot of OOT/rural guests, you might want to add on a couple extra days for them, too (like, 5 days past the RSVP-by date). After that you can call & hastle as much as you want! : D

I had my mother start calling people right after they were due. We had an envelope returned that was missing its contents. It took the awkwardness out of the calls because people could say it was theirs. Lucky coincidence!

my deadline is tomorrow and i’m still waiting for 20 out of 107 invites… including 4 members of the bridal party! =P

i actually had a lot of people RSVP by email or gchat. lame, i know but a reply is a reply, right? 

i’ll probably start hounding people next week.
