couper :  Don’t ever underestimate the idiots.  Be prepared for people to scratch things off and write in their own meal/name/other unwanted opinion.

or they will write in extra names eventhough there are not spaces, or use the RSVP card to decline and use the RSVP to write a personal message, or use the rsvp to request how many rooms they want you to book for them, or change your wedding date and give a reason, or request a meal not offered because they are vegetarian not “vegan” *sigh*  It was half way comical

Someone, somewhere will be stupid enough to f*** it up. That said, the format couldn’t be clearer or more-self explanatory.

I think that’s pretty straightforward, unless, as a prior poster noted, someone wants to order an adult meal for a child age eight or younger. I also wanted to say how beautiful I think the flowers are on your invitation. I love them.

It looks great and makes perfect sense! Just chiming in to say you can send out the best, most well-thought out and SIMPLE RSVP card in the world and someone will still surprise you. We had a couple people send us back their cards completely blank. Didn’t say anyone was attending or declining, listed no named, etc. That was… interesting. Or my personal favorite, my off-her-rocker, limited-contact grandmother sent her card back and had scratched out the “1” in “We have reserved 1 seat in your honor” and had RSVP’d the names of every single deceased relative on her side of the family tree, going back MANY generations. Probably wrote in 15 names. I actually keep her RSVP card in my car’s glovebox because I think it is absolutely hilarious- and we’ve been married over a year and a half! When the weirdness happens, just roll with the punches and know you did your best!

couper :  also did you look at the quotes for individual RSVP cards on catpaper? I threw in 65 with 3×5 paper (card stock matte) and it was $500. Just saying. Especially if people are bound to eff it up anyway…
