Ok, maybe it’s not an emergency by definition but I am pretty confused about what to do and I know many minds are better than one. So here it is:
We and the Designer both didn’t think about the fact that there needs to be a space for the invitees name to go so we know who is RSVPing!!!!!!!!!!!! How did we forget that!!!!!!!!!! Ughhhh!!!!!! Anyway. We decided to have a rubber stamp made in the same font so we can simply stamp whatever we want written (ex: Name: _________) or whatever.
So here’s our question. Is there enough space between “A Buffet will be provided blah blah blah” and the Check Boxes? Also, what should we have the stamp say? “I ______” or “Name: ________” or what?
Any and all thoughts are appreciated!!!!

We put Name(s), so if it was a large family we new how many family members were attending. I think there is definitely enough space there to add it!

I think there is definitely enough room. My vote would be for it to say “I _________________” as I think it ties in better with your RSVP boxes

Yeah I think it would fit there. The stamp that says “name” is a good idea and then just a blank line for them to fill it in.
or what NVACat said

I think it would fit there just fine.

You can do the whole ‘M_______________________________’ but that’s more formal. I would go with ‘I,_____________________’.

If the rubber stamp looks good then I say definately add it. But another option would be to number the response cards and assign each card to a couple/family. That would only work if you are not doing any and guests.
Edited to say number then in invisible ink so no one knows!

I say yes on enough space. I think the typical is M_____________ for the name lines for RSVP cards but if you are going for informal I think you could do something else like what PP suggested.

I would go with either Name _________________ or the traditional M_________________.

Will you be able to tell by the return address on the envelope? That’s what I am doing.

you could skip adding the names totally and number the cards, that way you know who’s it is. we numbered ours in a tiny spot that no one would see. i know some people even use black light pens.

To everyone who has done there’s with a number, how do you tell whether they are brining a guest?
