I was looking for a service so that my non tech savvy guest can rsvp without me having to send them response cards ( Save the tree..that are in my wallett) and I have gone with google voice and have my own personalized phone number for my guest to call and leave a voicemail. Now I am trying to figure out the right wording for my voicemail message when guest call. We are not have choices for the meals..its a buffett and you choose what you want when you walk up and get it.
I currently have on the voicemail ( names have been changed hehehe:
“Hi Thanks for calling the RSVP line for the Wedding of “Mickey Mouse” and “Betty Boop” please leave your name, number and if you are able to attend the wedding and reception” If you have any questions let us know and we will try our best to get back with you within 24 hours thanks and hav a great day”
How does that sound. I’m not sure if I left enough info or if I too much. Let me know if you think I need to add something.

Hello. This is Mickey and Betty. Thanks for calling to RSVP for our wedding. Please leave your full name and whether or not you plan to attend the wedding and reception. If you want us to call you back, please let us know and leave a phone number. Thanks again and we hope to see you on March 23rd!
*Are you doing +1’s? If so, I’m not sure how you would word that without it sounding like an open invitation to bring guests.

@the boss of you: Thanks that sounds better than mine and more concise. We are doing a plus 1, but I guess I can always say, ” Please leave your full name and whether or not you and a guest plan on attending the wedding and reception” I forgot to put that on the invitation too. I better add that on the invitation now that you mentioned it 🙂

I like the wording that @the boss of you: suggested. To handle guests, I’d change it a little:
Hello. This is Mickey and Betty. Thanks for calling to RSVP for our wedding. Please leave your full name and the names of the people in your party who plan to attend the wedding and reception. If you want us to call you back, please let us know and leave a phone number. Thanks again and we hope to see you on March 23rd!
That way you might even get the names of any guests who are invited as “and Guest” or “+1” – and if Aunt Sue, Uncle Jim and their 4 kids RSVP for 3, you’ll know if Aunt Sue is bringing 2 kids, or if she and Uncle Jim are planning to leave all the children at home and bring their good pal, the local grocer, who you’ve never met. (And you can respond accordingly!)
