How to deal with guests who don't RSVP on time

It's so frustrating having to chase up guests who haven't RSVPd. I didn't think it would be so hard. What approach is best (and quickest!) to get our guests to RSVP?

We’re over 60. Do we need to invite all aunts and uncles of deceased parents even if we’re not close?

I am very close to my 90-year-old aunt, who was my late uncle's wife and want to invite her to our small wedding dinner/reception. I have three other aunts and one uncle, all in their 90s, who live over an hour away. Would it be rude not to invite them all, even if we’re not that close? If so, will I need to add a plus one (or two for spouses) since they don’t drive and would need a ride?

Can you assist with the messaging/wording on our wedding stationery?

We are not very good at this sort of thing. When we order our invitations, can you assist us with what we say?

Apart from the invite itself what else goes in the envelope?

Hi! I'd love a list of everything that I'd need to include in the envelopes to my guests; not just the actual paper invite. Do people still send RSVP cards? Do guests actually send them back?

Hi there. Wondering how to delicately make the request for an 'unplugged' wedding and that our photos not be shared on social until we have. Would it be usual to put this in our wedding invitations?
