Pressure ? I would have enjoyed filling in this kind of RSVP for a friend’s wedding, even if it was not the most hilarious thing I could have written. People need to grow some self-esteem. 😛

Actually I’d find it a bit annoying, like I’ve got to play Mad Libs just to get my RSVP in. Something a little more straightforward might be more suitable. you can always put the fun stuff about what bands guests want to hear and what they think of you as a couple, on your wedding website if you have one, where people can join in or abstain as they choose.

Ok, as someone who has already been through their weddding, I am going to say this:

People are already going to suck at RSVPing. You will be hunting people down for a response that is clear and, you know, actually mailed back – even with a simple RSVP card.

Your RSVP card creates an even bigger barrier to people being clear about who is attending, and actually mailing it back. I wouldn’t do this based on the fact that I really, really think this is going to make your life harder.

@ajillity81:  I love it!  It’s a very creative take on the usual chicken, beef, veggie card!

Womp womp. Some people are no fun. I would enjoy filling these out, and I certainly wouldn’t feel “pressure” to be hilarious. It would only take a minute.

I feel like it would be easy enough to just fill in very literally if people did not want to try and be funny.

I think it’s a cute idea! Sorry you’re having issues getting them back. I would just reassure everyone that they can fill them out however they want (funny/not/or just Yes or No) and send them back to you soon!

I would be annoyed.   although some people would be happy to partake, not everyone would, I’m not one of those people.    I just want to respond yes or no and my food choice.
