Choosing an appropriate RSVP deadline for your wedding depends upon the contract that you have with your caterer, wedding venue, and wedding reception venue. Your caterer and event space coordinator may need to verify the number of guests who will be attending your wedding to ensure that there is adequate food, space, and seating to accommodate them.

This contract will also tell you your final cancelation date for your party space rental. You’ll want to have a finalized head count prior to that cancelation date, in case you need to find a smaller or larger wedding venue or wedding reception venue. Make your RSVP deadline at least two weeks prior to your earliest cancelation deadline to ensure that you have time to follow up with guests who have not yet RSVP’d. Traditionally, the RSVP deadline is four weeks prior to the date of the wedding.
