I wrote my RSVPs in a way that that couldn’t happen.  I had two lines (I didn’t invite more than two people from any one household), and I wrote the guest’s names on the lines.  Beside the names were two boxes, one for "Attending" and the other "Not Attending."  This also ensured that there was no mistaking who was invited and who wasn’t.

The bees are oh so smart.   I took their advice and I bought the invisible pen from eBay and it works so great…I can’t wait to use it!

I made an extra set of labels to put on on the back flaps of their RSVP envelopes.

I can’t believe that people don’t take the time to read instructions.  As a teacher you’d think that I would be used to dealing with this…but adults should know better!  We got one back that just checked the box "Can’t Come" and a couple of others came back with names but no meal selection.  Bah!  It’s not rocket science people! 😛

Where can I find one of those invisible pens? I haven’t had much luck so far!

Wow, piper, and they clearly took the time to painstakingly blacken in the entire circle! So sorry…

I actually searched for one on the Container Store’s website and it said they didn’t have them anymore. Maybe they just have it in the store. Anyway, since I live nowhere near one, I ordered mine online.. $1.67 with free shipping. http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.88 I ordered 2, just in case. I got the confirmation a few days ago that it shipped. Yey!

We ran out of time for the invisble pen so we used a regular pencil and maked the back with the initial of their last name and then a number. This way, if people noticed the numbering, they wouldn’t feel slighted if they were number 115 instead of 1.

Yup- I’ve had two postcards come back so far with their attendance indicated, but no name.  We numbered them with invisible ink, and it has worked great.

I did what MissBunny did.  I printed a set of labels using my master guest list on Excel of each guest’s name and address.

Then I put the labels on each RSVP envelope, so if the card came back balnk, at least the envelope would tell me who it came from!
