Ask them.Some people may have changed address and never received it. That happened to a friend of mine a few times. Don't worry people will show up that said they weren't coming and people that said they were coming wont.

Never assume. The best solution is to start making phone calls. If you have a bunch of missing RSVPs, try splitting up the list with you FI, mother, and FMIL. I did my RSVP through my wedding website, so I actually sent everyone a reminder e-mail with the link about a week before the RSVP deadline.

Good advice. I had no patience for people who "forgot" to send back their RSVP cards when all they had to do is put them in the pre-addressed, already-stamped envelopes I had enclosed. I called everyone who did not RSVP to see if they were attending. This made it simpler than having to worry about not ordering enough food or whether or not I should make up a favor for them.

Definitely do not assume! Most people end up forgetting and almost everyone I know always ends up having to call a lot of people after the deadline to ask them if they are coming or not. Call the people first to find out!
