    So, our RSVP deadline is in 3 days and we have only had about a third of the people we have invited RSVP. My question is now what are we supposed to do? Our wedding is in about 2 months!!! we need to know who is coming but I dont want to be rude. Please advise...
    Live every day like the next will never come.

      Honestly I would either send a mass email out just reminding people of the RSVP date or start calling people. You could just approach it as you are making final arrangements with you TA and want to see if they had time to think about.

      I'm sure everyone has decided by now, they probably just forgot about RSVP deadline. I don't think it's rude to remind people. It's ruder of them not to RSVP in a timely fashion! :)

        I agree, I think it would be completely fine to send out a reminder email. I think it's so rude to not RSVP!! Especially now as the bride who paid for the postage, ya know?? That's $$$! I hope they RSVP soon!!

          I agree, worth sending out reminder emails! We got a few more RSVPs when we did this (mostly for "no" but that's better than nothing!). That being said, I'm still pretty peeved that only 30 people RSVP'ed out of the 80 we invited, despite 2 reminder emails (1 one month before deadline, the other 1 week before). Maybe I should have called?

          Good luck!!!

            We ended up having to call people to see if they were coming. So irritating and so rude not to rsvp, but necessary for arrangements.

              This is so frustrating to me! Why can't people just RSVP?? I would assume they're not going, so maybe they feel bad telling us they're not coming? Or maybe they are just RUDE!

              We sent out 30 invites, and only got about 10 RSVPs...so I guess 1/3 is average? I never called people, I just assumed...but I really want them to send them back (we did RSVP madlibs postcards...maybe that's the issue?)

              I would say send out a reminder email or call them if you're really not sure. Good luck!

                ha, ha! 1/3 is most definitely the avg- that's almost exactly what I got out of 50. We also had RSVP postcards, but they were self-addressed and stamped... And ps- rsvp-ing thru your mom (my fiance's aunt) when you got your own invite is annoying... I'm also annoyed by people who rsvp'd thru the facebook event, but didn't send back the response via mail- though I should probably be glad I got back any response at all... also I know people who "said" they're going, but haven't booked any tickets, so I'm expecting cancellations. If they didn't rsvp, should I even take their word?

                  I sent out an e-mail and got a few responses after that. Sould we assume people are not coming if they don't RSVP?

                    I would recommend to send an email to everyone. I received RSVP by doing it that way.
