Try to get as much information from your guests and as early as possible. Do not be surprised at how many people definitely want to attend, but never get around to sending that card.
– Make sure the RSVP is due at least 2-3 weeks before the wedding date.
– Have your mom, fiance’s mom and wedding party make calls to the guests that did not RSVP to get a more realistic headcount. This is perfectly acceptable.
– If you are having a menu selection, be sure to add that information.
– Ask for how many people will be attending.
