How long after RSVP did you wait?

My RSVP date is today and still 58 outstanding. I know some people JUST sent their RSVPs back (they told me). I was planning on waiting until Monday to start hounding people, but don't know if I should just wait a little longer. I don't need the count for a bit, but just want to know!

How long did you wait before following up?

    I waited a few days I think the following Monday but if I ran into someone or talked to them I would jokingly remind them.

    I would also say a week - but I know me - when April 30th hits, and we still have 60 people missing, which we probably will - I will probably start bothering them immediately. I want answers so i can begin working on seating!!

    I started nudging people on FB right away...like those I could joke around with were my first targets. ;-) My shower was 2 days after my RSVP date so that was a good opportunity, too. The rest I only waited a couple of days. I found that most people who hadn't returned them had forgotten/thought they returned it/lost it/etc. so waiting wouldn't have really helped in those situations.

    On H's side, I'm still waiting on a few RSVPs... Tongue out

    I plan to wait atleast 3 days.  We'll probably start calling within a week but I'm hoping there are some stragglers that will come in today & tomorrow.

    Oh I called that day or a few days before. Many simply forgot. Some said verbally yes and sent back no!

    My RSVP date is tomorrow. I've already started "nudging" people like Melissa said on FB and those I know are coming but simply forgot, or lost their RSVP. Next week I'm going to call those that haven't and I have no clue about at all.

    My mom was already bothering some people BEFORE the RSVP date!  I was even missing bridal party RSVP's.  I'm just lucky that my mom is very annoying so she got on everyone for their RSVP's and I didn't have to worry about it.
