@deetroitwhat:  Mr. and Mrs. Deetroitwhat in the M line and I think you should put a 2 in the will attend line….looks like they messed up the order.

wow.  I’d put in an adjective, but it’s pretty clearly a typo.

Weird wording…Mrs. Deetroitwhat and husband Will Definitely (or not) Attend…Blah blah blah.

@abbie017:  +1 I agree. Silly RSVPs are far more entertaining to receive.

The “Will ____ Attend” is actually not a typo, but that doesn’t mean I understand why it would be put that way! In the invitation books I was looking through that was the standard way the RSVP card was written for the super traditional brands.

@deetroitwhat:  Not a typo, but definitely NOT super traditional, and I shudder to think how the glory of traditionalism has been tarnished, that anyone could imagine reply-forms as being traditional. Alas!

What you are supposed to do, in a less-imperfect world, is toss the reply card in the recycling bin, take out your own personalized stationery, envelope and stamp, and hand-write in an impeccable script

“Mr and Mrs What
accept with pleasure the kind invitation of
Mr and Mrs Host
to the wedding of
Miss Bride and Mr Groom
on the eighteenth of May at Saint Mary’s Church
at three o’clock”

or alternately that Mr and Mrs What reglet to decline the kind invitation &tc.

If you insist on using the little card, you hand-write “r and Mrs What” in the line preceded by the “M” which takes the place of the “M” in “Mr”, and you leave the second line blank, unless you are declining in which case you write “not” in it.

As for their invitation, their bigger error was thinking they had any need to write the words “Bed, Bath, and Beyond (or Beyound)” in the first place.
