Very glad I did this after today.
I just wrote a number very small on the back corner of each rsvp and numbered my guest list accordingly.
Today we received one back that was blank and had just checked off regrets!
If I didn’t have this tiny number I don’t know what I would of done!

Great job! I plan to do that too!
Another Bee on another post said to use Crayola Changeables. Write with the clear, hidden marker and only color over it if it comes back. That way guests never see the number. 🙂

@Mrs.RDV: That’s great that you numbered them! That’s what we’re planning to do.
@baletrina: I love that Crayola idea. It makes it kind of fun. Not that invitations aren’t fun, but ya know it brings out the kid in you again…or maybe that’s just me. lol

@heather5743: the other alternative I’ve seen on WB is to use a black light pen and light. You can feel like a secret agent! ;0) Haha.

@indibee: HAHA! I forgot about those too! Too many fun options!

I numbered all my RSVPs as well, but luckily I haven’t had to use the number, and we received 25 back already!

Yup, same here! This especially helps if you have a lot of guests from the same zip code, because then using the city of cancellation doesn’t even help you narrow down who it could be.

@baletrina: I saw that recommendation for the Crayola makers. The ones I found are called Color Switchers, but it seems like the same thing – clear on one side, colored on the other. So I numbered all my RSVP’s with the clear side and you can’t tell at all. Really neat!

We numbered ours as well (with invisible ink – thanks thewheelsonthebus!). So far we’ve gotten back less than a dozen RSVP’s and they’ve all had the guests names listed but I’m secretly hoping for a few mysteries so I can use the handy dandy black light and figure out who it belongs to. Who woulda’ thunk I’d want my guests to be stupid?! lol

@baletrina: That is a good idea.
@UpstateCait: It was actually kind of fun having to look it up and find out who the mystery was!
I’m hoping for no more mysteries though!

The invisible ink idea makes me feel like a kid again! So fun! I might just do it to bring back to some memories.

Insanely great idea for the changeable markers/invisible ink!

@Mrs.RDV: Wish I had done this…..we just received a “blank” RSVP so it DOES happen!!

At first I kind of chuckled at my FMIL (who did our invites) when she put numbers on. But I am SO glad that she did! We also received one that was completely blank and would have had no idea who it was from had we not had the little numbers in the back. Seriously..who sends them back completely blank??! Apparently more than I though!

It’s a great idea! Because I designed and printed our invites/RSVP cards, I went a step further and wrote all the names who are invited with a “will attend” and “will not attend” check box. Hopefully I won’t get any add-ons that way! 😛
