    For what it’s worth… why don’t you just go with whatever looks prettier in the font?

    Emily Post states that R.s.v.p. is “absolutely correct,” while R.S.V.P. capitals are “permissible.”  She also states that the former is preferred by “fastidious people.”  ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m not familiar with what you are “supposed” to do, but it is kind of a small item on the invite itself, so I’d go with what looks best to you! I don’t think your guests are going to pick apart what you did…and if they do, that is crazy!

    p.s. and you are right about the sentence, i.e., Repondez s’il vous plait.

    Wow, I can’t believe how many little things that are address in our weddings. I thought it was RSVP

    I guess many guests won’t really know the correct way either, so you could always do what looks prettier Wink

    I agree with cheerful – do whatever looks best in your font.

    Go with what looks best. I bet only 1 in a few hundred actually know the “correct” way to do it. I have gotten invites with all 3 and I never thought about it twice. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had similar concerns when putting together our invites – especially since 1/3 of our guests are French and if I got it wrong it would be obvious. My solution: avoid the acronym altogether ๐Ÿ™‚

    I always said RSVP but I can see why people would put “R.S.V.P.”

    It doesn’t make too much of a difference to me though!

    You know, I am a pretty fastidious person, and I honestly don’t think I would notice this one. Go with whatever looks best based on the font.

    Glad you were able to make a decision and hope your samples look great.

    I’m sure you didn’t mean anything by it, but please try to refrain from using the word “retard”, many people find it offensive. I lost a sister soon after she was born with down syndrome and it’s just not a nice word to casually toss around, you never know who might be affected by it.
