Def put ___ of 2 are able to attend so people don’t add. That’s one thing I wish I had done.

This is our RSVP. We just put reply by date, how many seats, a space for names, meal option, and then a space for people to add a note because umm well everyone wants some well wishes on their cards! LOL! I picked up an invisible ink pen with black light at Chapters (kids spy kit for like $5) to number each card on the little heart on the bottom right.

We used “__X__ seats have been reserved in your honor” and haven’t had any problems yet!

Also, number the back of the RSVP cards in case someone doesn’t fill out their name.  We thought that putting your names was so obvious but we’ve had one come back so far without it and we were really glad we’d numbered the cards.

ooohhh thats a great idea bakerella!! A friend told me to number the RSVPs. I like your way. You wrote the number with invisible pen over the heart?

Here are ours. They worked really well. We did have the extra step of making different versions (for inviting 3, 4, etc.) We also used the invisible ink pen, which came in handy for 2 of the RSVPs that came back with no name.

@mudratdetector – Yes, I found a kids spy kit online for $5 which has an invisible ink pen and little black light. I put the heart on the RSVPs to match the invite, but also so that I know where the invisible ink number is on each RSVP and I won’t be hunting for it each time. You can’t see the ink at all (invisible, duh). So as long as the pen doesn’t dry out or run out of ink we’ll be fine 🙂

I would use the reserved seats suggestion above … we didn’t and it has caused all sorts of problems.  We also had 2 lines on our reply cards (so guests would have space to write their names. I wish I would have printed 2 versions (one with only a single line for our single guests)!

I know everyone says it’s best to put number of seats reserved in your honor, but does this ever lead to people thinking the seats are interchangeable? Like if a husband can’t come being able to bring a daughter for instance?

Instead of the M___ line which no one knows what it is or why it’s there (particularly in this day and age), print the names of each invited guest on the reply card so it is clear as to who is invited and who isn’t.

If you are offering a choice of entrees, be extremely descriptive of each one. No one can decipher anything from “beef/chicken/fish, etc” as to how it is prepared or what ingredients it has, including sauces. Also, include side dishes if possible. If you are having a vegetarian choice, let them know what that is. Also for the kids’ meal, list what it is.
