Not sure if this wording has come up on the boards, I found it at another site and my BMs and FI (surprisingly) all thought it was hysterical. I have the green light.
___ accepts with pleasure
___ declines with regret
___ accepts with regret
___ declines with pleasure
I just think with the way invitations are so formal, it adds a comedic element that not everyone will even pick up on. However, I don’t know what my mother would say….
We’re having a formal wedding but I’m trying my hardest to tone it down as much as possible…we are not formal people but our families have made us feel like its a wedding and it MUST be formal. Would this be okay for our RSVPs? If anything, it will be showing our guests that even with it being a formal event, we are still the crazy kids that they know and love.

I think it’s funny! And if you and your FI do too, go for it! 🙂

i don’t know that i’d give people the option of accepts with regret or declines with pleasure unless you are sure you wont be sad if people check them. maybe give them a space to draw something or write a note to you could lighten the mood of the rsvp. 🙂

I’m all for being goofy, but I think it’s a little inappropriate for RSVP cards, personally. I mean, do you really want someone to mark “accepts with regret”?
What about giving them a space to write you marriage advice or something creative….

I think it’s funny, but honestly with some of the questions I’ve gotten about our RSVP cards, I wonder that someone would get confused. You REALLY have to assume the worst when it comes to the RSVP cards. Haha.

We (the bride and groom) feel like RSVPing “accepts with regret” because we are being forced to have the wedding in my hometown which is against both of our wishes. Our friends and those close to us know this situation, so no, if one of our friends from out of state couldn’t attend, i could see they checking “decliens with pleasure” because WHO THE HELL WANTS TO GO TO BUFFALO?

I think it’s funny, bu I’m not a “formal” person and I think most ettiqutte rules are bs.
But, if you come from families that are formal and like having formal events, you are definitely gonna piss some people off with these RSVP cards. I guess it’s a matter of whether you care or not 🙂

I think it’s funny and unique too. If it fit your style and your FI agrees — do what you want, it your wedding! 🙂

Hi, so I saw the cutest RSVP the other day…
___ Will be there with bells on
___ Will be there without bells
___ Will be there, undecided on bells
___ Will do not be there, heard people will be wearing bells
I though this was such a cute way to break up the formality of an RSVP 🙂
Best of Luck

I just wish I could incorporate something else funny with the invitation package because otherwise this might just stand out.
Since I’m also offering RSVP on the website, maybe I should just put it there?

I think it’s great, except that I think people could get easily confused!

I have seen so many posts about the guests being confused about the RSVP choices that it really depends on what your guests are like. Will they get that its supposed to be funny?

I think you’d run in to too many people confused / questioning. People already have too many RSVP issues as is (there are multiple on these boards every day it seems).
One of my friends had the standard ___ will attend, ___ must decline (or whatever) and then had a MadLibs style “Advice for Marriage” at the bottem. They got a mixture of serious and very funny answers to the MadLib Advice.
I’ll try and find something similar to give you an idea of what they did!
