I’ve heard the RSVP horror stories and I’m trying to make this as simple as possible.
We will fill in the number of seats reserved and expect our guests to fill in the spot with how many will be attending. Is this clear?

What is your vegetarian option? Are they supposed to write their name(s) on the line?

If you really want to make it fail-proof, do something like this (if you have them printed, you could always write the names in yourself)
If you want people to write their names, add an “M” to the beginning of the line.

@peachacid: Those were my two thoughts as well.

Are you writing their names on the line?
regarding menu – I needed to know which guest was having what – so I wrote: “please write first name by dinner preference”

Thanks! And yes we will write the guest names on the line.

I think the “___ seats have been reserved in your honour, please indicate how many bla bla” is too wordy.
I would go with “____ number attending”
or “________ of _______ will be attending” and handwrite in how many guests you’re inviting with each rsvp card (typically 2), then there’s no confusion as to how many they’re entitlted to bring.
Just suggestions 🙂

@smiles4jo: Vegetarian option?

They don’t fill out the # of seats reserved, you do (so it makes the ‘please fill out the # in your party” unnecessary).
I prefer to not be told how I feel about accepting or declining, and prefer just to have accepts or declines. I have woefully, and regretfully attended weddings, and excitedly declined.

Seems odd to have the guests fill in how many seats have been reserved… how about “_____ seats will be needed by…”?

Oops hit submit too soon.
I’d also move the RSVP date to the very bottom, and make it less obvious. It’s almost yelling at me now.
The line you’ve left for guests to indicate entree’s is also small, and I am not sure how you want people to indicate which. Is it by putting initials, writing out names (small line for this), just putting 2 x chicken 1 x pasta?

I would ask them to initial choice of entree. That way if your venue requires placecards that indicate choice of entree, you will know who is having what.

I’d add an M on the name line so they get the idea.
Also, you need to take out the “please indicate how many in your party” because you fill out the “_____ seats have been reserved in your honour”! You are the one reserving their seats. 🙂
You might want to put seat(s) if you’re inviting any single guests. Otherwise you’ll get “1 seats have been reserved” which sounds funny.
Did you want them to just write a number next to the meal options?

@rebwana: i did a version of this (i didn’t fill in their names) but it was fail proof. they were diy so i could alter each one and put the correct number of entries based on the number of guests invited.
@smiles4jo: i would consider doing a version of the one rebwana posted, it really works well especially when you are having a meal selection. my venue loved how easy it was for them.

I prefer the one Rebwana posted. If I received the one posted by the OP, even if it said “2 seats have been reserved in your honour”, the empty lines below are an open invitation to write in whatever numbers I like. You might only have reserved us two seats, but five of us are coming!
