Mine says: 

___ Accepts with pleasure

___ Toasts from Afar

___ of ___ guests invited are attending


That way if someone just puts a check beside the first options they will fill in the number below.  We just wanted to be safe since we have limited space and budget.

I currently have:


____ Accepts with pleasure    # Attending ____

____ Declines with regret                              

Is this considered okay or no?

I’m not concerned about etiquette. I can’t chance too many people showing up. I am going with

We have reserved ___ of seats in your honor

____ Accepts

____ Declines

____ of ____ invited attending

This way there is no confusion over who is and who is not invited. I will not have an inner envelope but I am incorporating tags with their names on it as part of the pocketfold design.
We already have to scale down our guest list and it is important that those invited understand.
It has been my experience that folks bring a date without asking. I have even been asked to go to weddings as a “date” before and when I ask if they are allowed to bring a date, the usual response is “they won’t mind”…WHAT!!! so many folks should know but don’t know … or choose not to follow etiquette.
Just my thoughts.

@DeaconBride:  I couldn’t agree more.  When prices are upwards of $20-$40 a head, I don’t want to chance that there will be an extra!  =)  Guests HAVE to have rules!  =)
