I sent my invites out in September too, but made the deadline for RSVPs February 6th at the suggestion of my TA - I have received a TON of 'yes's' back, but only a few have booked, so dealing with the same issue. I TOO am surprised more ppl haven't booked, but several just started booking this week (I guess just waiting after Christmas, New Year's, or perhaps til the last minute of my RSVP date?)...
I was going to send out a gentle email reminder, but an Evite would work just as great (and I like your wording).
Soooo frustrating when you're just trying to get a head count, I know....good luck though!!

We sent out our wedding invitations in September for our April wedding. Made the RSVP November 1. Wanted to give everyone more than enough time.
Some of the people who RSVP'd that they were coming haven't booked anything yet and we really need an accurate headcount for obvious reasons.
So I was going to send out an "Evite" reminder to those who have yet to book. It will say that if they don't book by Feb. 28th we will consider them "toasting from afar."
Do you think that's ok?
I wanted to hear from anyone else who's in a similar situation. Also, isn't it safe to say that if you haven't booked yet for a trip to Mexico in April, you probably aren't going??!
I mean, come on, right?
