I wrote to a friend on my rsvp “I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor, you mean I can’t skip out on the wedding? – Oh, and I’m bringing a date, he’ll have red meat, I’ll have chicken”..even though her card didn’t have food choices, but I knew she’d get the humour, and that my Fiance is coming.

You could write a little poem, you could decorate the card and just respond with the usual words, but it would look “creative”. Just a couple of ideas.

I’d be a little stumped too… it’s a cute idea but I have a feeling alot of people will put it off like you did and then forget to send the RSVP back?

Yeah, people had a hard enoughtime just filling out our regular RSVP cards. SInce you’re a bridesmaid and she knows you’re coming you can maybe draw of picture of you at the wedding?

I think a lot of folks unintentionally write creative responses on RSVP cards. People seem to be confused by M__________ and other fill in the blank options. I even saw a post where someone wrote Myself in the blank, which made me laugh out loud. Perhaps your cousin was trying to be proactive, but I’m with you… I bet most folks won’t get it. Is she doing it because she wants to keep the RSVP cards as a memento? That’s the only reason I can see for emphasizing a creative response. I hope she numbered the RSVP cards or they might be so creative that she doesn’t know who they’re from!

We did this for our response cards and got really clever responses.  Some people decorated the card like a scrapbook, other people drew a cartoon, some wrote poems (or haikus), one wrote the response in code.  I loved them and we hung them on display at the wedding!

@Jennifer5642: I just recently was confused by the M. Then again, I am just a waiting bee, so I will pass this one off as a whoops moment and know better next time! I did eventually figure it out, but the RSVP sat on my table for a good 3 or 4 days before it hit me.


As for being creative, just color the whole thing with bright colors. Or put some stickers on it. Like a smiley face for yes. Or just put a superman sticker on it just for fun with a little speech bubble. There are a million things you could do! Don’t think too had.

How about you take a picture of you and your boyfriend holding up a sign that says ‘YES!’ or Were There! or whatever? then print it out and send it to her? Or just a nice picture of you two you have already, and use a nice marker pen to write on the back or front- ‘two people who wioll be there’ or ‘we cant wait for your wedding’ or whatever.
