Is it appropriate for a host to ask if someone’s coming to a party before the RSVP date?
My friend is hosting a birthday celebration for me, and the RSVP deadline is in 10 days. She messaged one of my friends (who she vaguely knows, but not very well) who hasn’t yet responded to check in and see if she was coming. I feel like it’s only appropriate to take that step on the last day to RSVP. She thinks what she did was fine. Was she overstepping? What’s the proper etiquette here?

It isn't that big of a deal, but generally you put a deadline on an invitation for a reason and in general you really shouldn't be contacting them at all.

I mention it in passing, i don’t go out of my way to ask.

What's the harm, seriously! Overstepping what? This is a really silly question.

The proper etiquette is to ANSWER an invitation within three days of receiving it. If the invitation mentions a last day, it's a bit "off" to wait until then to reply.
