No RSVPs? Getting an Accurate Guest Count

Q. We Have Many Invited Guests Who Haven’t Responded – Now What?

A  Having an accurate guest count is important so you can make sure that there will be the appropriate amount of seating, food, and drink for your guests and thus needed by your ceremony and reception sites as soon as possible. You don’t want to find yourself in an embarrassing situation with major overages or shortages. You should feel free to give any guests that haven’t responded by the RSVP dates a call to inquire if they’re planning to attend. If you’re unable to reach them, enlist the help of a family member or friend to try again. For any that are still unreachable, feel free to leave them a message by phone or email essentially expressing your regret that they won’t be able to make it, and thus you can safely presume they’re not attending.
