Put a line that says

“We have resereved _______ seat for you

___ out of ____ guests will be attending”

Then hand write in the numbers in the first and third line, and let them fill in the second one!

@cirk:  that! 


As RSVP cards are usually cheaper the more you buy, just go with one type so you can get a quantity discount

Hmm. I think you are making this more complicated that it needs to be.

We have over 240 invited, some as much as 4 or 5 on an invite. This is what we did for our RSVP. 

I think the only think you need to add would be 

“We have reserved ___ seats in your name.”

And then you fill in the amount of people. 

I don’t think you need to print out different RSVP cards.

No one should be invited as + guest, unless their name is actually Mr Guest or Guest Smith. Guests should be invited by name.

@bkrocks13:  I think it’s ok to add “and guest.” It’s not the best but you also want to make your friends feel welcome.

@bkrocks13:  since your invites should be going out 6-8 weeks ahead of the event, you can ask your guest just before the date for their name. (Technically, the invite should be mailed directly to that person, as each guest should be treated equally, but I am flexible about that part). 


Honestly, if 6 weeks before the event they nail down a name, invite them sans guest.

We put in the # invited and their names.

We are doing the same thing (but shh.. we are saying no +1s only named guests. But there are 3 people (young widow, divorced after 2 months, and breakup after 8 years and her ex and his pregnant girlfriend are invited) that can bring whomever they want).

Ours say:

“The favor of your reply is requested by July 15, 2013 via post or at http://www...

— of — accept with pleasure

Please initial your meal choice (__ chicken, __salmon, __ vegetarian, __children’s)

__ of __ decline.”

We put names on the outside of the envelopes for all invited except for our few plus ones. The outter envelope for those with plus ones has just their name and then 2 for seats.


Maybe that will work?
