The guests will fill it out when they RSVP with their name and the name of their guest. For example, when I fill one out it’s I usually respond Mr and Mrs. Kalamaz17

Leave the corner of the RSVP corner blank. IF the guests want to fill it out, let them. You don’t need to put a return address from your guests.

 

ARe you have kids at your wedding? I dont even think you need the “number of guests” option for the RSVP cards. That’s what the M______  is for.   Also, are you having a buffet? or a sit down dinner?

on the back of the rsvp card u should use white pen and put a number that matches the guest list number… just incase u cant read their rsvp card and they dont put a return label/address while sending it back to you…. its been helpful for me for about 20 of the 40 rsvps that have come back to me..

A white pen works on the back if you have a blacklight but just putting a small number in a lower or upper corner can help you cross-reference the card with the row number on your guest address spreadsheet (assuming you have one?).

I agree with all the previous posters. The only reason I’m adding the line “number of guests attending ___” is because I’m paranoid that guests will think it is okay to bring a plus one or their children even though it is not addressed that way on their invite. This way if I get back a RSVP that has  2 guests attending when I was only planning one (or a couple that puts down 5 because they think it is okay to bring their 3 kids) I will be able to contact them about it beforehand.  Am I a being a control freak about this??

I love the idea of using a white pen or pencil to write the number on the back. I’m ordering mine this weekend so I better go start making a spreadsheet now 🙂

So glad I found this community! Thanks ladies!!

@LuckyJuls:  I’m letting them fill it in and if they put a crazy number I will politely let them know that we have limited seating 🙂
