Hello, all! I’m desigining and printing my own wedding invitations, and I’m wondering if anyone has pre-printed the guests names on the response cards, basically doing a mail merge in MS Word? This seems a lot easier, particularly since I’m printing and designing my own anyway, but I haven’t seen anyone else do this? Anyone have any thoughts or input?

I did not preprint their names, but I did number the backs of each one so I know who was repsonding.

It might prevent the problem of people adding additional people to the invite, but it also does not allow the guests to remove people who cannot attend – for instance if one person in a married couple cannot attend, they choose not to bring invited children, etc. I guess they could cross off one of the names, but some people may forget or not understand and your guest count could be off.

If you do preprint the names, you might want to also say something like “Circle those attending” or “Please check those attending” (with little checkboxes).

I think it’d a good idea, if you don’t think it’ll add too much work. Make sure you don’t mix them up! I agree with others that you should make sure to have a way that each individual person in a group/couple can signify that they’re going or not.

Spitfire: Ours say M_____________ # attending _____________. It does not matter if they are adults or children as we will be serving family style.

I was thinking of doing their name and then a checkbox for attending/not attending below it. So, for example:
Mr. John Smith Mrs. John Smith
_Will attend _will attend
_ Will not attend _will not attend
For the most part, we are not inviting children, and there would be a blank spot for those that are getting a +1.
