Hello! I was wondering how to handle rsvps. I am designing my own. Does having the number of guest line suggest that the invitation is sort of open? I was considering doing Names and skipping # of guests, but it seems so convenient to have that number lol. I am just trying to find the best wording that suggests that only those listed on the invite are to attend without sarcrificing any information I need for the wedding. 🙁

Reception cards can be fantastic
Some people like to personally address them.
Mr & Mrs whatever
_# seats have been reserved in your honor.
That way there is no confusion on how many guests they can bring. Definitely up to you tho!

I googled it and went with the one that seems the most straight forward.
I think we just put:
______ Will be attending
______ We will not be attending
I’m sure it will result in phone calls, which is why I gave myself 4 weeks after the rsvp date to make phone calls.

I think – and this is just me – that the “M__________” thing is a little strange. Before I started planning my own wedding, I never really knew what it meant. That said, it’s traditional so it’s fine 🙂
We did this:
__will not attend
Some people wrote in a number on the “will attend” line, and others just checked it off, but since they also wrote the names down that didn’t matter.
I know our way is less formal, but so far everyone has written down all the info we need, so it worked for us!
