that’s pretty much the same wording we used for our rsvsp cards, so it sounds fine to me 🙂

We actually just hand wrote the names of the invited guests on the RSVP. It really wasn’t that hard and it meant that we didn’t get back any where people forgot to fill intheir names and we didn’t have anyone write in extra names.

@oxstardust421xo:  We used basically the same wording, too.  I have the same issue= limited space.  I don’t think anyone will be offended.

We really struggled with this for my daughter’s upcoming ceremony, as the groom has a huge family; some kids were invited, some weren’t, some guests got plus-ones, some didn’t, etc.  We were worried that only putting two blank lines might allow for a married couple who were invited without kids to end up sending the mother and six year old daughter instead.  We finally settled on this:

Please indicate attendance below for each invited guest

and return by November 20th in the enclosed envelope

or at weddingwebsite.com.

John Smith   ____ accepts ____ declines

Jane Smith   ____ accepts ____ declines

Susie Smith ____ accepts ____ declines

We look forward to celebrating our special day with you!

 

We only allowed wedding party members to write in a guest name, so those looked like this for the name section:

               John Smith  ____ accepts ____ declines

               Guest ________________________________

It took a while to print the RSVP cards like this, but I printed them in batches; groom’s family, our family, friends of the bride, friends of the groom, etc.  The extra time was worth the assurance that no random guests should be popping up.

Hope that helps!

Looks fine. But I’d include a large, bold, underlined, italic NO RSVP, NO FOOD FOR YOU!

Just kidding. Sort of 😉
