    @IzzyBear:  so far we have about 20 out of 100 cards back and every single one has a name written on it. i numbered mine, but i’m not sure if we’ll need to. not a huge deal

    you could also mark a little number on the back bottom corner of the return envelope, or on the flap.

    @IzzyBear:  Out of ~150 invites, only 1 or 2 didn’t have names on them but we easily figured it out!

    I went through and painstakingly numbered all of the RSVPs with my black light pen, and made sure everyone was sent the correct one, but everyone sent them back with their names on them!  So oh well…  I’m not sure it’s necessary!

    of the 80 or so invites I sent out only 2 didnt put their names. I had them numbered but even if I didn’t, it wouldn’t have been too difficult to figure out.

    You will be finre. I didn’t get a single one without names on them and was so glad I didn’t waste time doing it!

    I didn’t even know you were meant to number them.  Nope, we haven’t had any problems with that.

    I had 200+ invites sent – I have recieved almost 10+ without names. I am baffled. I am so upset I didn’t number!!! Gah!

    I numbered all of mine, but I had no issues whatsoever.  You’ll be fine, don’t stress!

    We did number ours (no blacklight super secret pen or anything, just a small number on the back) and still got several back with no name. I’d be willing to bet that at least 1/3 of ours were returned not filled out correctly in some way.

    We didn’t number ours but DH did handwrite every invited person’s name on the RSVP so there was no mistake on who was invited (tried to avoid added randoms).  We didn’t have a problem.

    We didn’t number ours. I read about how good an idea it is to number the cards but in a rush to get it out on time it slipped my mind.

    We had a wedding of 160 guests. 76 cards sent out to individuals including plus-ones and families including children. There were 5 cards didn’t have the name on it but the people put their at least their address on the envelope, so we figured those out. There were another 2 we couldn’t figure out but we figured those out when we called to chase everyone else who had not RSVP’d. (and just for your info we had to chase 11 individuals/families to find out if they were coming. We had 5 people no-show, 2 couples and 1 was Dh’s aunt’s husband that got sick but the aunt came.)
