Hi girls, sorry this isn’t an exciting one.
Which reply card do you think looks better? I used the wording for #1 out of my etiquette book (yeah, I’m that cool, I have a book) but recently just tried out #2 which is more simplified.
Our invites aren’t super fancy (same design, simple print) and we’re not getting married in a church if that makes a lick of difference. The wording we’ve used on the invites is pretty standard (eg. So-and-so request the pleasure of your company at the marriage of their daughter Juliepants to Joshiepants blah blah blah).
Thank you for your time! Sorry they’re a tad blurry, I copied them from my screen which was zoomed in a little (whoops).

Kindly reply sounds better.

I like the first one Pants. It sound so regal LOL!

“Kindly reply” sounds more natural and I like that it fits on 1 line

LOL. Any or neither. I’ve NEVER paid attention to what it actually said there. It could be blank with just a date, and it’d be good enough for me.

“Kindly reply” got my vote, “the favour of your reply is requested” just sounds too stuffy. Love the design though 😉

I like the second one. The wording flows a bit better and I like that it fits on one line 🙂 I love the design, btw.

Thanks girls. I love the design, too! It’s from Vistaprint and matches my wedding colours pretty dead on. I like the simplicity, but I’m still just a bit hung up on the wording.

I like the way the second one sounds. The subject of this thread made me crack up!

Heh, we used the first one pretty much EXACTLY. So if you want to be awesome like me… 😉 Just kidding. I didn’t even think about it. I like both of them honestly.

I really like the way the second one sounds. 🙂 Love the design!

I prefer the first one as well.
@KeeKalena: LOL I love that you just threw the Pants in there so casually.

@Ms. Martian: Yay we like the same one!
Yeah I think she’s pretty much used to it now hahaha!

I think simpler is better for people who will be skimming the invite. People are already incompetent enough at RSVPing without superfluous language tripping them up 😉

I like them both but I think the “Kindly reply” looks better on your design. I am a verbose person by nature and I know it drives people nuts when I say things in way more words than necessary (a la 3/4s of my posts on WB!) so short and to the point probably works best here.
Btw, I love the way you worded your third option in the poll – I almost wanted to vote for that one but I had no wise words to share so I had to vote for option 2 instead!
