Personally I think the invitation should include your last names. I’m a big believer in mixing and matching fonts though so if you want you can totally use a different, complimentary font on your RSVPs.

I don’t know what to add about the wording though. If I think of something I’ll let you know!

I also did BRIDES invites from Michaels, and also found the RSVP wording awkward.  I wrote:

The favour of a reply is requested
on or before July 31

Name(s): _____________________________

_______ will attend     _______ unable to attend

Or, reply on our website at


Also, I think you should definitely include your last names on the invites, but fonts are up to you.  Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

I used last names on mine. In fact, I used full names. And for the RSVPs, I did


Please respond by June 5, 2010


____ accepts ____ regrets


We like to keep things simple.

I was originally going to DIY invitations until I found some letterpress ones that I just adore. I did a lot of research into it though and I absolutely believe you should use last names on the invitations. We are using full names–MyFirst MyMiddle MyLast and HisFirst HisMiddle HisLast. However, our invites are very formal and I think if you prefer a more casual feel then you should go with what you like.

I also agree with MichelleMyBell’s RSVP cards with a clear indication that you want names.

Last names would look appropriate with this invite.  I’ve seen it before and think it has a bit of a dressy touch to it.

I was worried about headcount too, and also about people inviting other people… so my RSVP cards read:

__ out of ___ attending

__ unable to attend

I’m going to fill in the second blank on the “attending” line with the total number of people that are invited on that one invitation.

You could change the “attending” to “accept with pleasure” and the “unable to attend” to “decline with regret” to make it more traditional.
