So FI and I have been working tonight on getting our invitations together to be mailed. As I’m stuffing one of the envelopes with the response card, I realize that something seems off. Because we aren’t doing inner envelopes we had to have wording on our response cards that indicated how many seats we were reserving for our guest. So essentialy, our response card says this:
_____ of _____ guests will attend (where we fill in the second line of how many seats we are reserving for them)
Then below that we have the entree selections. FOR SOME REASON WE HAVE NO LINE THAT SAYS “REGRETFULLY DECLINES” OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT!! I’m wondering what the hell we were thinking when we drafted our response cards. I mean, maybe we were thinking that if they were declining they would just write in “zero” in the first line? We had these printed out by a professional invitation company that made several drafts for us, so if this is really bad I’m wondering why nothing was mentioned to us.
Am I overreacting? If you got this response card and had to decline, what would you do with the card? Now I’m worried that people who can’t come won’t think they have to RSVP at all since there isn’t a specific section for declining!

I don’t think its a big deal. 0 is a number and its a valid option. Don’t worry about it.

That makes me feel so much better… I seriously think looking at my invite wording for so long is making me crazy.

I agree, 0 is a valid option. I personally really like the wording of _ of _ guests will attend wording, good choice!

I wouldn’t worry. We didn’t have a decline option either and people just wrote in 0.

I agree with everyone else, I’d just write 0. Don’t stress! 🙂

I would personally just write Zero if I got it, I’m sure you’ll be fine!

I would just write 0 and send it back as well. Not to worry.

Stop stressing, it is okay! I’d probably just put a 0 and write a little note at the bottom 🙂 You are fine!

Oooh I actually might steal that – I was starting to feel like __ of __ AND accepts/declines AND meal choices was going to make our RSVP postcards really overwhelmingly busy!

I agree–you’re good. I’d write 0 and a little note at the bottom too.
