  • Rsvp – We did ours like: tksjewelry and sparky look forwart to celebrating with you.  The favour of your reply is requested by *date*  M__________, ___ seats have been reserved in you honour  ____accept with pleasure _____decline with regret.  We didn’t have food choices so I didn’t do anything with that.
  • Address of the facility is fine, you don’t need to include a map unless you want one
  • You will need a return envelope with your Rsvp if you want them returned to you
  • A month and a half is plenty of time.

Hope that helps

1) Ok, so for RSVP we didn’t like the run of the mill…so we did this

      Please respond by September 23,2011



Number Attending____ [ ] Accepts   [ ] Regrets

 Then our special logo at the bottom….now BE AWARE! Putting number attending does leave an open door for people to put any number…which is what WE were going for, but you might not be……

2) and 3) I had a complete meltdown about this. I’m nuts about the maps and letting people know about the blocks. And I seriously didn’t like when people told me to make a website, but honest to god it’s the best move thus far I’ve made in this whole wedding planning thing (And I’ve had some good moves)… 😀 Go to weddingchannel.com, go through the step by step directions (no, you don’t have to include all of the tabs they give you) and then you will be able to include hotel info and maps…. there is an option at the end, let’s say your name is chel and his name is willis…HA! The option is to choose your URL….they give you a few open ones…and its things like chelwillis.ourwedding.com or chel-willis.ourwedding.com…..the easiet URLs to give out on earth….. I mean my mom was able to find it and she can’t even turn a computer on…. I’m serious, she had to go to the library to use their computers…LMAO!!

4) we did individual envelopes, but I have no earthy idea if it’s ok to go the other route…..

5) yes, plenty of time…. our was from aug 8th till sept 23rd…..


Good luck!! 😀

@tksjewelry  is right….my Fiance said over and over again if you just give the address they will find it…… but with all the info we needed to give out we just bit the bullet and did the website…. But yeah, everyone has GPS these days

  • Our RSVP card went something like this:

“Your reply is kindly requested by [date].


___ of [# of reserved seats for that guest] will attend

Please initial your entree choice:

[Chicken] __

[Beef] __

[Vegetarian] ___”

  • Addresses and phone numbers are just fine.
  • If you don’t want to make a separate card for hotel information, just add a line that says “Rooms have been reserved for you at [hotel].  Please call [phone #] to make your reservations by [date].”
  • You should put your stamp onto your RSVP envelope if you’re going to do RSVP cards.  If you want to save on postage, make your RSVP card into a postcard and put your stamp on that.
  • I only gave me guests about 3 weeks =P (delays in getting the invitations done and I needed to get the guest count in time…) – so I think a month and a half will be just fine 🙂
