That seems very straight forward to me!

Seems pretty obvious to me.  The only thing is that a lot of people don’t understand the “M______________” – so if you want it to be clearer, it could say “Names:_______________”.  

You hear horror stories of tons of RSVP cards with no names, because that was over people’s heads….

Seems pretty clear to me. Re the previous comment about cards being returned with no names, remember to discreetly number the back of the cards to correspond with your spreadsheet for invitations. Any cards returned without names can easily be identified.

Seems pretty clear to me. Did she tell you what she was confused about? Also, I love your design!

@Meant2Bee:  Haha, I honestly didn’t know what the ‘M’ was for either when I received my first invite a few years ago! A quick google search cleared that up though. We had tons of peope just check their entree instead of initialing it and we just assigned the food randomly and let the couple switch if needed. I don’t think you need to change anything on the RSVP.

@Meant2Bee:  I think it is very straight forward, I also agree that you should put “Names” instead of “M”. It’s a fantastic idea to number your RSVP cards with you guest list because people are going to send it back with no name. It’s really silly thing to do but they will anyway. I wrote a post about people being confused yesterday and my RSVP almost has the exact wording but people were still RSVPing with more guests than there alotted seats. UGH! I guest it’s the nature of the beast, maybe I should have just put ‘Names’ but I just wanted to make sure people knew that one of the seats was there’s. Unfortunately formal weddings don’t happen very often on my side and people don’t always get the RSVP thing. Best of luck! I think it is very clear!

Looks just like mine except I did put

and not M____________________

Because of how often people seem confused by it. I once I had someone tell me “but my name doesn’t start with an M!”
