Calling guests who did not RSVP

QuestionMy wedding date is fast approaching and most of the guests have already sent back their RSVPs. I am, however, still waiting for some of them to RSVP. Is it polite to call them and ask them directly if they are coming to the wedding?

AnswerAs your wedding date nears, no doubt you are busily trying to figure out your seating arrangements as well as finalize your tally for the reception site/caterer. Knowing this, a well phrased phone call to those guests who have yet to return their RSVPs is acceptable.
