Does it have a line for guests to write their names?

Is there space on the invite that you could add the line #____ if you ran them through your printer? OR just hand wrote it nicely?

I ordered mine from vistaprint.com and got 150 RSVP cards for under $60. There are some very plain ones (like all white or all one color). This might be an option if you don’t mind them not being match-matchy. I know there are other websites that let you order RSVPs without invites as well.

If they can’t be remedies, I second vistaprint.

People *should* know to put the names of everyone attending.

Hmmm ideally they would put the number attending on those lines, but I think some may put a check. If it were me and I checked the yes box it would mean that all invited guests were coming. If someone couldn’t make it then I would probably write it on. However not everyone may think to do this. If I were you I would get new ones and save myself the headache! May be worth it to get new ones now to eliminate worry and problems later!

@graygodess20:  First off – you are not stupid… you did a silly thing.

There are lots of way to remedy it which, although a little time consuming, can be done fairly easy.  You could just handwrite the guests’ names if your penmanship is okay (I would actually be impressed if someone took the time to individually write out my name as people understand that you can’t have that pre-printed,) or take them to Staples or similar and have them figure it out.

Deep breath….. it’s just a minor blip in the road.

I think you can fix this by numbering the RSVP cards lightly on the back (and matching each # to s specific guest on your guest list). That way, if someone doesn’t put their name, or how many people, you know exactly who it is and can follow up with them.

Might be a little extra work on your part, but probably still easier than re-ordering your RSVP cards.

People will for sure write in the number of people coming. I had mine exactly like yours and then had the # attending too. Most people wrote the number in the will attend box. If they just check it off go by whatever they wrote in the M_____ line. I’m sure it will says “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” or “Mr. John Smith &  Guest” or just “Mr. John Smith” which will show you how many are coming. If you are confused then just ask that person directly. Don’t go wasting money ordering new invitations. 🙂
