Silly things that I’m sure you’re already aware of like addressing and stamping response envelopes. Other than that “you can only lead a horse to water.” Basically you can cross your fingers and hope for the best. 🙂

I made my RSVP’s funny, like with the gladly attend, regretfully decline, enthusiastically decline,, or regretfully attend. We got almost all of ours back other than 25 of them. A LOT of people wrote messages on them as well because they loved the choices so much. I can’t say that is the for sure reason I got them back on time, but I think it helped.

I also prestamped the postcard responses so I think that helped too. Ultimately though you will get a ton back in the first few weeks, and then all of a sudden nothing. Then after your date has almost passed, they will pour in. Typical.

@violet25:  If you mail the invitations mid-September and have the RSVP due date at Oct 1, that will only give your guests about a week to a week and a half to respond.  Sometimes mail takes a little longer than normal to reach somebody. I would mail them a little earlier to give your guests more time.
