    Why not just ask for the best marriage advice? It lacks the sardonic tone that might make “worst marriage advice” seem inappropriate, but still lets them respond to a fun question.

    One worry about making RSVPs complicated is that people may postpone sending them until they have time to come up with something funny/clever/meaningful…and then forget to do it at all/have them be late. Asking for marriage advice best or worst might be something fun to do at the wedding, like having cards on tables for people to write on instead of a guestbook.

    @scampersand:  I agree.

    Plus, given all the strange RSVP responses that the WB sees with “normal” RSVP cards, I can only imagine what unusual/unconventional ones will yield.

    I love the idea of worst  advice.  If I got it I would enjoy it!  We did the song request!  Haven’t sent them out though so can’t comment on how it’s going to go!

    I’m all for asking for advice and putting a fun item on the RSVP cards, but I’d spin it as ‘Best” marriage advice – or rephrase the question….  like – “what’s the most bizarre wedding advice” – or ‘whacky’, etc… for whatever reason, ‘worst’ rubs me the wrong way…. it’s kind of ominous.

    I think there are other ways to have fun with your RSVP’s rather than asking a question. I don’t think I’d be inclined to fill anything out. If you want to represent your silly personalities, I would do so with the responses themselves.

    I saw a cute one which was along the lines of:

    M__________ will be there with bells on!

    M__________will be there, but forgo the bells!

    M__________ will be elsewhere with bells on!

    M__________ will be elsewhere without bells!

     

    or:

    M_________ enthusiastically accepts

    M_________ enthusiastically declines

    M_________regretfully declines

    M_________regretfully accepts

    To be honest, I think it will just delay the return of your RSVP’s. It might be fun, but I know if I got one that asked for bad marriage advice I wouldn’t return it right away, I’d keep it and try to think of something funny and probably send it back at the last minute rather than as soon as I knew I was going to the event.
