I think that’s a neat idea, but couldn’t you just look at the return address?

@JB1127:  None of my guests have been putting a return address on their RSVPs. 

So far I’ve had 1 guest who didn’t write their names on the card, it was the flower girl’s parents.  I didn’t use the invisible ink, I just write REALLY lightly on the back and numbered all the cards.

I just wrote the numbers small on the back…I didn’t care if the guests saw it or not!

I actually used them on my rsvp’s.  The pen is super cheap and actually works really well.  The only draw back is that shipping takes a long time.

Totally recommend them!

What a nifty idea! My guests haven’t been including a return address either, but thankfully all have written their names so far.

Crayola makes “invisible ink” markers now.  You can write the number in the invisible one, and color over it with the other visible colors when you get them back.

Is there any reason (etiquette related or otherwise) why you can’t just write out the names of the invitees on the response cards yourself, in regular ink so they’re visible? Surely the recipients would realize that it’s for the sake of keeping track of the R.s.v.ps? I was thinking of doing this for ours and wanted to know if there’s an important reason why we shouldn’t.

(Clarification: I would be writing the names either at the top of the card, or on the back side in the spot where a return address would normally go – I wasn’t going to pre-fill-out the place for the attendees to write in their names and select their entrees, etc.)

Mine all came back with names, luckily.  But I hid a very small number in the envelope.  Behind the stamp so it wouldn’t show through and behind the flap of the back of the envelope so it was hard to see unless you really looked.  🙂

thats a great idea! we just had a list on excel of names and whatever number they were on our spreadsheet we wrote it very small on the back of the response card. It was very helpful!
