How to politely remind a guest to rsvp

It's understandable to want to gently remind your guests to RSVP if they haven't responded yet. Here are a few ways you can politely remind them:

  1. Send a friendly message: Reach out to the guest with a friendly message, such as "Hi [Guest Name], we hope you received our wedding invitation and wanted to check if you've had a chance to RSVP yet? We're looking forward to celebrating with you and want to make sure we have an accurate guest count."

  2. Provide a deadline: If you haven't already, provide a clear RSVP deadline so guests know when to respond by. In your follow-up message, you can remind them of the deadline and let them know you'd appreciate a response by that date.

  3. Offer assistance: Sometimes, guests may forget to RSVP or have trouble with the online RSVP process. Offer to assist them with their RSVP if they need it, or provide an alternative method of RSVPing if they're having technical difficulties.

  4. Be gracious: Remember to be gracious and understanding in your reminder message. Your guests may have busy schedules or other things on their mind, so a gentle reminder can go a long way in making sure everyone is on the same page.

A polite and friendly reminder can help ensure that you have an accurate headcount for your wedding, while also showing your guests that you care about their attendance and want them to be a part of your special day.
