We set our RSVP date of March 15 and did 2 weeks of follow-ups and still had people NOT RSVP. I find that just terribly rude.
I figure if they show up, they show up. We are all adults and if they can't commit, one way or the other, then it is on them.
I too waited until I had a final heacount to order things for the OOT bags and start working on them. I don't want to spend more than I have to, or have excess stuff laying around.
I am doing a few extras just in case though. If we have more peeps than the few extras I am making, they are out of luck.
Sounds tough I know, but.....

Suddenly we heard from people who are still "thinking about it" - I mean, almost 20 possible guests! I have two girlfriends who are teachers. I understand their schedule will not be released until end of April but everyone else has no excuse.. I just think they don't realize what it takes to plan this. If I run out of bags, is that ok to explain to them they were ordered a week after the RSVP date and we just didn't know they had plans to join us? Or do I have to go out of my way to make them OOT bags?
Anyone going through that??
