I’ve been reading pretty much all afternoon about how to do these RSVPs and I think I’ve got some wording I like. We are inviting children, but we aren’t allowing our single friends to bring a plus one. So this is what I came up with from the hodge-podge of variations:
Kindly reply by June 10, 2011
We have reserved ___ seats in your honor.
__ Can’t Wait! __ Can’t Come!
__ # attending
It seems redundant to me to have the # attending line. Isn’t that what the name line is for? But it seems so common that I think it might be best to stick it in there. I honestly think most of the RSVPs I’ve filled out have only had the names, whether or not we were coming, and the meal options (which we’re not doing because it’s a buffet).
Does this look good? Not too confusing or redundant?

Mine are going to be almost the same, just I don’t have the __#attending line.

Maybe instead of the __# attending line you could condense it into one line saying something like “__# attending out of __ reserved seats in you honor”
I don’t think it looks bad as it is though, just a thought if you wanted to get rid of the last line. 🙂

maybe instead of putting the #attending line put the # of name lines as are invited. so if their is only one line…only one person should be putting their name down. and if there are two if they only put one name, i would venture to say only one person is coming. on ours i had two lines(i allowed everyone a +1) and wrote above the lines ‘please write the names of those attending’

@sarbear2814: The line on our RSVP card is super long though. It would certainly fit two names. My Fiance suggested writing “Name(s) of Attending:” to make sure people knew to write everyone down. But I don’t see that very often on WeddingBee and I don’t want to make the RSVP card look weird!

I did basically what you have but a little more formal wording
We have reserved ____ seats in your honour
__Accepts with pleasure
Number of Attendees__
__Declines with Regret
Please Respond by June first

My Maid/Matron of Honor thinks it’s redundant to have # attending & having a space for their names, so we’re thinking about this option now. What does everyone think? Is this clear enough or do you think there will be too much room for mistakes?
