When I first starting thinking about RSVP cards, I thought I would want something fun like this… however, we ended up going with something fairly standard.  I went the standard route because people seem to have enough difficulty with regular RSVP’s.  With something like you posted, people may be confused and not answer correctly as to whether or not they are attending.

Maybe you could send them to people who you know would appreciate them and then send the other half traditional cards?

My only thing with these kind of cards is that when we decline, we’re usually pretty bummed about it and they don’t usually have selections that reflect that. 

Also, your second language guests good be pretty confused….and the place for the names isn’t very obvious so I would bet you get some no named responses!

If they are somEthing your Fiance loves, could you make a card this style, but with “responses” that are moreappropriate/related to your wedding. 

 

Or, two sets of reply cards- one set like these for your friends etc, a second regular set for those you conquer earned wont see the humor?

Watch out, there are some etiquette police out there who might be so morally offended by your choice of RSVP that they will feel compelled to send back a more traditional and appropriate choice

Eh I don’t care for them but thats just me.  I agree with OP that if you have non English speakers and might be offended due to booze comment then yea don’t go for it.  I know its his wedding too so just talk to him and try to use reason.  

My Fiance really really wants to get up and tell the story to everyone at the reception that we met at a bar when he was trying to speak broken Spanish to me.  He thinks its funny and my Spanish family will laugh.  I am not really in agreement.  I told him he should feel free to do that at the rehersal but it might make the reception at the wedding fall flat.  We are still in discussions about it.

I wouldn’t choose these for my wedding (or I should say, didn’t consider it since the wedding is over) but I would LOVE to get one of these in the mail! I’d be sending back my RSVP ASAP. But I’d also think that if you use that RSVP it might be a pre-cursor to the type of wedding you’re having. So if I showed up and the wedding was super formal and elegant I’d be surprised.
