For our RSVP cards, I want to have the wording "_____ out of _____ accept" to really get the point across that only so many people are invited (sadly, we’re not allowing guests for people, or even significant others unless they are engaged/living together – we just don’t have room!). I’m really worried that people will assume they can bring someone & hopefully this will politely let them know otherwise.
I’m wondering if I need to include a "________ out of __________ decline" line. If someone writes "4 out of 5" I already know that one won’t be coming. Would people be confused if there wasn’t a decline option? They could always write "0 out of ____", right? Also, it’ll give us more room for guests to write us a note.

I’m also interested in the "____ out of _____ accept" sorta thing. We are trying to severely limit our guest list and plus 1s can sometimes get out of control…

We opted to let people say they’re either coming or not coming, and then added a line to say how many would be there. It didn’t even occur to me until just now that it’s a little redundant. Oh well. Here’s how ours were worded:
___ will attend
___ will not attend
___ out of ___ will attend on Sunday, the Twenty-Sixth of July.

we didn’t put anything about our guests declining, we just have:
number of adults attending ___ number of children attending ____
Finding out children was a big thing for us because of our location, and doing kids meals for them
I have just gotten back written on the reply that "no they wont be able to attend" or something.
I dunno I didn’t find it a big deal

here’s the way we did ours (this is the proof from the printer)
