@BetterSherm:  I like it! Very cute and casual.

 

My married friends and I definitely agreed that our guests tended to have issues writing in the proper info on our RSVP’s, so I’m wishing you luck 🙂 hehe

It’s good if you send these to young guests, but older guests? 

“No, I’m square!” may not go over too well with the older population… what do other bees think?

@BetterSherm:  Yeah I totally understand and I would know how to respond, but it can be very surprising though haha. For example, our friends did something very similar and had issues where a couple would be invited and RSVP that only one of them would be attending, but there wasn’t a section to indicate which person would be attending so the person just didn’t say which of the two people would be there (rather than circling the Mr. or Mrs. or something?), which is frustrating for place card purpsoses, etc. so that may be something to consider 🙂 It’s really no big deal, but they did have to contact the couples again and find out which person would be attending.

@indyJEEP:  You make a good point about not knowing which person is attending.

I had the guests write in their names on my RSVP card, so I would know exactly who was attending. My card looked like this:

@BetterSherm:  I think you could solve that by writing the names of who is invited on the inner envelope (if you’re doing one). I skipped the inner envelope, but I tied ribbon around my invitation, and wrote the names of who was invited on a tag the ribbon was tied to.

@BetterSherm:  The only suggestion I have would be to add the word “seat(s)” before “saved” so it’s more instinctive what should go there.  If you’re worried about confusion, you could always put “your name”, “your +1’s name”, “number of guests”, etc underneath each blank so that the guests get it right!

@BetterSherm:  The only concern I have is saying “There’s” … There is 1 seat saved… There are 2 seats saved.  So, “there’s” doesn’t work in every situation

Are you printing each one separately? Another Bee (sorry-forgot who) posted this a while back- solves ALL the RSVP issues.

Okay, then I like what you have. People may still try to write in other guests if one can’t make it, but that format will cut down on most of the rsvp headaches.
