Depending on who is not responding, maybe you could have someone closer call that person. My husband’s aunt (his mother’s sister) did not respond to our invitation whatsoever, so instead of me calling her which would have been weird since I’ve only met her once, my mother-in-law called her for the answer. It wasn’t weird or a big deal at all since they’re sisters. There was no weirdness about having to tell the bride no or weirdness from me about demanding an answer from a potential guest. Plus, the person who calls might be able to put a little more pressure on the maybes than the bride can, you know?

If I never got a for sure yes answer, I’d mark them as a no. They need to learn RSVP etiquette.

I would estimate that about 75% of vagues/maybes are nos. It might be a bit higher but it’s better to overestimate attendance.
