I had check boxes for “We can’t wait” and “Sorry, we can’t make it” and people couldn’t figure that out and just wrote weather they were coming or not.

Personally, I think it’s too long and inappropriate – especially the part with mentions of the c-word. I know it’s just a joke but if I’m spending thousands of dollars on a day I want it to be a little more formal.

I get that its supposed to be funny, but anytime I’ve seen a funny rsvp card it seems to just end up confusing people. My friend’s had 3 options and was pretty simple and a bunch of our mutual friends were calling me and asking what they were supposed to check.

Its also just wayyy to long, and the section on gifts and behavior are weird. It’s usually considered bad etiquette to make mention of gifts on the invite.

There’s a lot stuff on there that certain people might find offensive (like if they do have a lot of food allergies/dietary restrictions or maybe they can’t afford to get you a gift). Some of your guests will probably get a kick out of it, but I have a feeling most won’t appreciate it and you’ll have more trouble getting rsvp’s back.

Honestly, I found it super passive-aggressive and not funny at all.  The part about the gifts is kinda offensive.  I don’t think RSVP cards need to be super formal and I enjoy when there is a little humor, but this isn’t funny.

This has been going aroung the net for a while.  I highly doubt the OP intends on sending it.  It’s supposed to be funny, nothing more.

I don’t think it’s anything that’s ever been sent out as a real RSVP – just a sarcastic thing outlining the things that people actually do (i.e. it’s never as simple as can/can’t attend)!

It’s too long for my taste as a wedding guest, if I’m being honest. If you like this style  though, you should consider a Guest Book in that style!

LMAO you guys…this is a joke. Not a real RSVP. It even says in the title “just for fun.”

That is funny.  I think it’s obvious that the person who wrote this was dealing with some of the frustrations that most of us have gone through.  I once saw an RSVP card that I WISH we could have sent to certain people (obligatory family members).  It only gave the option of “regretfully declines.”  The people we didn’t want to come said they’d come, but then bailed the day before, after we’d already paid for them.  Because it meant that they wouldn’t be there, I was just fine with that.

We printed our own invites (we used a Michael’s kit).  We had fun rsvp cards (we used the “bells on” theme I’ve seen mentioned elsewhere) for the younger crowd, and simple cards for older people, more traditional people, or people who we thought could be easily confused.
