That is a little weird, but I think I remember hearing somewhere that the wording of response cards (or the fact that they have wording at all) is a relatively “new” trend.

I’d say just write a few sentences and let the bride know who is coming! As far as the response date goes…I guess it means ASAP!

That’s really weird. Not even meal choices?! I would just write “We’re looking forward to seeing you! Congratulations! John & Jane Doe” or whatever and pop it in the mail.

Is your cousins wedding in the south by any chance?  It seems less common to have an RSVP card down south. 

Is there a stamp and envelope included?  If so, I’d write on the card.  Otherwise I would write a letter on your own stationary stating you (err your parents) would be delighted to attend the wedding.

I think I heard somewhere that in Europe or the UK, they don’t even include RSVP cards.  I think it’s customary to reply back using your own stationary and with a note.

Yeah, it is weird maybe someone on here can explain.

They’re probably just looking for a little note about yes or no on coming and a little congratulatory message. I think it is a new trend as PP have said but I like it; I think it’s more fun than the “Check-this-box” option (which I’ll probably end up doing anyway lol).

You all may know by now, but a response card is to let the bride know that you are attending her wedding and it also gives her amn estimate of how many people she will have at her reception to feed because sometimes you have people to not show up at the wedding but show up at the reception to get food. Sorry but it’s the truth..
