I have been searching for some sassy, funny RSVP card wording and just can’t come up with anything. I am not good at these things! Obviously, it needs to have the standard "yes we can come" and "no we can’t", and i want it to have a section where people can request a song(s) to be played at the reception- but that’s boring. Is anyone out there good with words and can think of something else? It’s a summer wedding, in a historical landmark, fairly formal. Thanks!

We used "In Body" for Yes and "In Spirt" for No.
One wisecrackin’ uncle checked both!

Ooo, that’s a good one!
Is there a theme for your wedding? That could help you decide on something.
I wish it were socially acceptable to guilt your guests:
_____ is a good friend and will DEFINITELY be there with an awesome present in-hand.
_____ sucks and doesn’t care about the Wiglets enough to go to their wedding, but will still send an awesome present.
(I’M KIDDING, I’M KIDDING – PLEASE NO COMMENTROVERSY) 😉

Wiglet that was halarious! I wish I could put that on my RSVP too! And I LOVE the idea of adding a song request on the RSVP. What a great way to play an array of music that at least everyone will love one song out of! I might have to steal that idea…

Space – those were great! Did you come up with those on your own?
I agree that something theme related would be cool?
One idea — Dancing shoes ready / Dancing shoes stuck in the closet … 🙂
I still love the simple
__ Can’t wait!
__ Can’t believe they can’t make it!

I was thinking for our nautical theme to use the below.
In Port (attending)
Lost at Sea (regrets)
We are also going to ask for a song recomendation. We love the idea of people suggesting songs. Everyone has somethign they like to dance to.

Great ideas – we have a link on our website where people can request songs. Such amazing responses! Some are wacky, but I can’t wait to play them and see the reactions!

Not sure where this came from but this is what we are using.
Ready to celebrate, let us know by this date: xx/xx/xxxx
__Sounds great, won’t be late!
__Just can’t make it, but congratulations!

Here’s what we did:
__ Will attend with bells on
__ Will attend, no bells
__ Will not attend, have bell phobia
We got some interesting responses to that…including one that said he’d be wearing ONLY bells.
And of course we got harassed to kiss with about a million bells that people brought to the wedding.

Jessica, that’s amazing. We were thinking of using bells to ring us on our way to the reception (No throwing things allowed at our church) and that would be a really cute throwback to the invite responses. I’ll see if this is one of those ideas my FI likes or rolls his eyes at. (I always have to check!)

Our RSVP Cards were mad lib style. If you’ve every played when you were a kid, you’ll know how fun it can be. We came up with a paragraph, that left several key words blank… and our guests filled them in. It was the BEST thing! My DH and I couldn’t wait to open them when they came in the mail, because they were so much fun to read everyone’s wacky take on the cards. Plus, most of our guest completed the card, because they couldn’t wait to give their two cents – so we ended up with a high return rate. Win-Win. Plus, you could easily incorporate the song into the paragraph. Plus here’s a pic of ours.. it’s hard to see cause the paper was shiny/glittery.
It went something like this:
We are __________(adjetive) to hear about your upcoming nuptials!
______________(Your Name(s)) is/are ___________(adjetive) to
___________________(attend/miss) the celebration. There are ________(number) people in our party.

I just found this on another blog and thought of this post. Not only are their invitations adorable, but the RSVP wording is very fun! Hope this helps.

@Wiglet: can you share how you made a song request link? I’d love to add something like that to our site!!!
Post # 16
_____ Absolutely! Can’t Wait!!
_____ Bummer! Can’t make it.
Our venue also asked us to but something for people to indicate any allergies and we got some funny responses on that question…
