Is anyone having any issues with guests not RSVPing to the reply date? Or not replying at all?
Do we have to follow up on these guests? Phone calls or messages. I don’t even want to!
We have included reply paid envelopes for their convenience. And if they cannot be bothered popping it in the post or even calling to tell us I want to cut them from the list!
Fiancee is a bit more forviging than me but I am not!
Anyone else feeling like this?

Unfortunately, you do need to follow up with those invited guests who have not responded.
Your caterer will require numbers and you likely will nopt want to pay for those who do not plan to attend. You also do not want the hassle that comes with people showing up unexpectedly.

Sorry but following up people who don’t RSVP (once the RSVP date has passed) is a fact of life. I (or my fiance or sister) phoned every person who hadn’t replied, and we got our numbers exact. No one came who said they wouldn’t, no one no-showed except two who fell sick.

I agree! You have to follow up… some people genuinly forget. Or their partners collect the mail and put it somewhere ‘safe’ so you dont even know you get invited to the wedding (Happened to us once!)

my RSVP date hasn’t past yet, but I sent my invitations out ealier than most at the 3 1/2 month mark.
54 RSVP yes as of today
6 regrets to date
9 guests still on my B list, as I get regrets I will send an invitate to the remaining guest.
I’ll give my guest an extra week past the due date before I start calling, emailing and texting. However I do find it very annoying, all they have to do is fill the card out and mail it back.

I’ve been bugging people via Facebook message (if they have Facebook). That way I know whether or not they’ve received and read my message. If they don’t respond, then I’ll start calling them if I have their number. If I still don’t get an answer, I’m going to kindly inform them that they are no longer invited to the wedding. My ushers will have a list of people who haven’t RSVP’d, and they will be the last to be seated. Some people may see this as rude, but the way I see it is if they can’t be bothered to RSVP even after I contact them, then why should I want them at my wedding?

I had to chase some people up too who hadn’t RSVP. I’m glad I did because some of them said they were going to the ceremony only whilst others said reception…..
