Do you do it last minute?
After the date on the invite?
Or basically when you recieve it!
My engagement is oct 19 I've specially put a month prior so (sep 19 RSVP on invites mostly family that are interstate etc) I'm just assuming my bridal party will be attending or I will be bridezilla on their ***'s bahaha. Anyway if people don't RSVP- is it okay to say 'no you didn't RSVP too bad'?!
We have hired somewhere for our function! So paying booze/food the numbers are needed!! Especially people with allergies I'm getting paranoid lol. Being preg doesn't help

I usually leave to last minute incase something comes up but always within the RSVP time frame.

Yes if they Don't RSVP then assume they aren't coming. I hate that! I always RSVP soon after getting an invite.
I think waiting for something else to come up is rude. So waiting for a better offer.. Not nice. If people did that to me I would rather them not come.

I rang people for my engagement and wedding. I know you shouldn't have to but like you I was worried people would just show up.
It was crazy the amount of people who were like 'yeah I'm coming....' No explanation or anything. I have an email or mobile number so it wasn't exactly difficult like havin to buy a stamp and post an RSVP.
So why didn't you RSVP?

I know that not RSVPing is rude, but sending out invites with an RSVP in 2 weeks for an event in 6 weeks which is not a Wedding (therefore not something they have been anticipating for months or even more than a year) is setting yourself up for disaster. Whilst I know engagement parties are big events for the engaged couple they are not a valid reason for people who work casually to not show up to work (Weddings might be). Many people who work casually do not get a roster 1 month in advance. Many people with kids may not be able to confirm a babysitter 1 month in advance with little warning. People can be away, so might not get the invite til after the RSVP date.
I'd be surprised if you need to confirm catering numbers a month in advance. A week in advance is more likely surely? I'd be chasing people if it's 2 weeks before the event and you haven't heard from them.

I try to do it asap.
When we were getting married, it was so frustrating! I made the rsvp date 2 weeks before I had to give final numbers and I still had to ask people the day before I had to confirm.

OP you will likely get a bunch of RSVP's in the days just before the cut-off date. This is pretty normal in my experience.
I too find it rude when people don't RSVP at all. It's especially rude when they don't RSVP, yet show up to the party anyway. I think often it comes down to ignorance, in that they have never actually organised a party and have no idea how much work and planning goes into it and the importance of rsvping for catering numbers.
