How not to be a pest .. but ....

I sent a formal STD out ~ beginning of June ... with prepaid postcards ... and got a number of responses back and also via verbal reply ...
I am 5 months out ..and I feel like I still need a more definite count .. as only a few have booked through the travel agent ..
Should I send something else out now?? granted alot of our guests will book themselves but I still feel like I need an exact count ..

We sent out a formal invitation with a very specific RSVP date. We requested that our guests book everything by a certain date so that we could go ahead with our planning. I don't think it's too much to ask for a deadline...you might get a few people who miss the deadline, but at least you will have a much more accurate count...
For us, we requested that our guests confirm everything about 3-4 months in advance...

we've got a good estimate but I don't think we'll have anything definite, probably until we get to Mexico. A little frustrating but I just try and not sweat the small stuff!

Maybe do some postcards up on Vista - pretty cheap, good reminder of the holiday and have the back with all the details of your travel agent and all the travel details should they wish to take this card to their own travel agent.
I'd even put a cheeky line in about deals getting more expensive and not wanting anyone to miss out on the fantastic offer you got them!
If you make it all about benefits to them, it wont be you pesting them cause you want to know numbers, and it may be the push that people need to get booked.
