Do people really not know to write their names??!!!!!! Are you kidding me?! Its only been a few days and we already got 2 back that checked accepts and wrote 2 attending but NO NAMES!! I was debating on the invisible number thing, thinking it would help for illegible handwriting, but never even crossed my mind that people wouldn’t know to write their names. I didn’t end up doing it because I thought I could figure out bad handwriting in the end with process of elimination.. UGHHHH so mad at myself.
Just a PSI.. DO THE INVISIBLE INK lol. Save yourself the trouble.

You also could have simply numbered them discreetly on the back of the card. The number would match your excel spread sheet or numbered guestlist no matter what format you used. Too late for that now. Hope the rest of them are more complete.

We numbered ours just in case, but we’ve gotten a couple incomplete. We’re offering bus transportation to our venue and need a head count, but some people who we know want to take part didn’t fill that in on their rsvp! It is SO frustrating having to hunt people down! our deadline is in two weeks and we have less than half our RSVPs back. Augh!!!!

My shower RSVPs were like that and some of the younger guests as I’m kind of a young bride (I’m 24) didn’t know what they were supposed to do for sure but on our wedding RSVPs, I just typed out each guest’s name and then had them check if they were coming or not to avoid people writing in extra guests.

I numbered all of my rsvp cards as I was stuffing my inviations and I am really glad I did becasue I got many that were blank. I also was glad I did it because I could just go back to my list and check off the names as the rsvps came back it. Thank goodness for the bee because I would have never thought of doing it before reading another bees post!!

Yep, we got about 4 blank ones. We were ultimately able to figure them all out, but it was a pain! I knew about the numbering thing, but my friend who is a professonal wedding invitation designer was stuffing and sending them for us since she lives across the country and I didn’t want to burden her with one more task since she was doing them for us at cost. And I really didn’t believe people wouldn’t put their names or a return address on them. I was very wrong!

We numbered ours as well, as we did postcard RSVPS. The number was on the front side where our address was. So, they were easily visible but I kept them as small as possible, ha.
I had seen it on a Pin LONG before I was engaged, and thought it was a great idea. And yes, it worked great when we got a couple back that didn’t have any name information on it, but did have the meal selection picked.
For those, I suppose you’ll just jhave to wait until the end and reach out to anyone you hadn’t received them from. Hopefully, it’ll elimiate itself – or call them out for not filling it out! 🙂

Definitely regretting not numbering them. Just amazes me that people don’t know to write their names lol.
