LOL this is definitely good advice! I can see this happening to me. Numbering the cards is a really good idea (especially if you have the postcard reply cards). Any change you can match these up by the postmark??

We received two cards without anyone’s name attached to it – one of them wrote down 5 guests!! That blew me away. a big fat line for your name and nothing. I should have numbered them for sure!

RSVPs tested my patience. So much rides on getting these numbers in for the caterer, and people have literally no clue lol

This is why I’m so glad I’m taking the cheap route and making people RSVP by Internet or phone. That way when they do something stupid I can (hopefully politely) let them know immediately and try not to throw the phone or kick my computer 🙂 Hehe.

I’m sure I’ll manage to hit a ton of snags too though. It’s like problems are magnetic to RSVPs.

Yep, we numbered very lightly on the back corner. We have gotten about 30 RSVPs back and only 2…yes 2! have written return addresses. But, no one has forgotten to write their names on the inside…. But, on the other hand, a few have been illegilable…. so I recommend numbering them lightly!! It’s actually a very funny process. Fiance was so convinced no one would forget return addresses. I crack up everyday when we get them. And 3 people have written well wish notes on the back, which we didn’t notice at first. Freakin Funny!!!
