Agree!!!! times like 10,000! I am def. regretting not numbering my rsvps. as I am amazed at how many people don’t know to actually write their name on the rsvp.

Ah that’s too funny about your RSVP’s (for an observer anyway). Thanks for the advice, I never would have thought about it!

Eesh! I’ve heard this from so many brides. The idea of not writing my name on an RSVP baffles me still.

Hmmm… very helpful. I would not have thought about it, but it makes soooo much sense! I was about to ask if you could tell from the return address? Um, duh? Clearly, I haven’t gotten that far in the process and I’m a little stupid. 

Very good advice!

oh, wow… yeah, gotta love unnamed stuff! lol. 

I just put the guest list into Excel yesterday and discovered I have 168 guests!  that is A LOT of people to invite! I’m definitely gonna have to number the cards, otherwise at least half of them will come back unnamed! (I know my luck and it’d be at least half, lol)

LOVE the examples, too! LOL!

“Mysel”…LOL. I think I actually wrote that on my RSVP to my sister’s wedding. But since I actually am the one who sent out the invitations AND I numbered the backs…it’s OK Laughing

After hearing all the horror stories from you ladies I did number my cards with a black light pen on the back.  Although I have not had anyone not put their names in the blank spot.

I’ve had two blank responses so far and we still have about half of the RSVP’s out.

Good mental notes for me on this thread. Use Name(s) instead of M, and number the cards. Too funny!!!

I completely forgot to number our rsvp’s and so far we have had two mystery rsvp cards. Not sure if it’s for 1 person or two people.  So it’s a guessing game until we get them all back and then I’ll be making phone calls.

Not fun.

I read that a good way to avoid this is to write the guests name on it yourself, before you send it out in the invitation. Is that not a good idea?
