It should say “their joy”. You are asking people to share joy you will feel together. We are saying something similar…

@MissKit:  Do it this way:

 

The favor of your reply is requested by October 4, 2013

______ Will attend

           ____Beef

           ____Chicken

           ____Vegetarian

           ____Child

 

 

______ Regrets

 

You could list the meal choices side by side but that’s not correct, although most people won’t care…and don’t expect most people to RSVP…I don’t know why, but they don’t anymore…AND one more thing! I am getting married the day after you! Congratulations!

@MissKit:  I had to smile when I read this, but only because of the issue of parallel structure.  You don’t want a guest to say he or she will have the “child” instead of the beef, lol. 🙂

Do you plan to list the entree options and have a space for the guests to check which meals they desire, or do they need to circle the options, or do you want them to write the meal options on a blank line?

One other comment: You do not need the “th” after October 4.

So you will not be receiving any responses by mail, just via e-mail and phone, correct?

And and you only have room for three lines total on your card?

@MissKit:  When you say ALL INFO on one card…do you mean you are listing all this on your invitatiion? That is a definate NO NO…it’s never done. Ever. I am not trying to be mean, but it’s just never socially correct to do such a thing.

@MissKit:  Ahh. I did not realize until I read @MontfordsGirl:‘s last post that you were talking about including the response information on the invitation itself.  If at all possible, I would place this information on a separate card.

If that is just not possible for some reason, and you must work with the very small amount of space shown on your invitation, I would recommend the following wording:

Please repond by October 4. If attending, please indicate entree selection:
Chicken, beef, vegetarian, or child’s plate.
e-mail_____________________ phone:_______________________

ETA:  There should be an accent over the second of the three “e”s in entree, but I do not know how to create it on my keyboard.

Oh, honey! I meant no harm, I thought you just wanted to do it traditionally. I am sorry to have offended you. I never meant to…it’s your day, you may do it any way that you want!

Please accept my apologies, I completely misunderstood.
