I don’t think they’re ever foolproof, but yours looks close! Are you writing in the guests’ names on the RSVP as well?

Looks good but certain people will add people regardless of what the rsvp says.

I was thinking of doing something like this as well, but writing the guests names on the cards for them.  I actually have mostly couples invited, so I may be in the clear from problems!

i think as long as you write the names on them then it is fool proof. and put a line through any spaces that are left blank with a colored pen. we wrote ours in red because it matched the color scheme of the wedding.

i agree to put the guest names….unless you dont know them and are giving the option to bring any date.  then i would at least do as a PP said and cross out the extra lines as needed.

Are you doing yours yourself??

I am printing our own invites, so I will be printing out the exact number of lines for each personalized RSVP and with only the invited persons on the RSVP as well! And possibly giving them the Check Box options next to accept/decline; we are donig a buffet so a meal choice is not necessary for us!

Like PPs have said, the rude people are rude regardless of how clear/forward we  Brides make things, just watch for it & be prepared!

@AirForceFiance: Looks pretty good to me, esp. with the other ladies suggestions of crossing out the extra lines.

My one suggestion would be to bullet point the meal selections, unless you want people to write in 1, 2, or 3 rather than beef/chicken/kids. Otherwise you may get a mix of 1s and 2s and words which could be just one more little PITA when you’re going over numbers with the caterer.

Well not foolproof but I do like that setup. I’ve read stories where people use post-its, insert little notes, write names all over the RSVP.

People will always find more ways to add guests, you just gotta be firm and say no to them

nope, because if you have 4 lines for every invite you’ll have people filling in those 4 lines regardless of “2 seats in your honor”

 

Now if you wrote “2 seats in your honor” and only had 2 lines and those lines read their specific names then it’s almost fool proof.
