dee424:  I’m doing it. I guess I don’t care about the etiquette part. I have a limited number that I need to stick to, so on my RSVP cards I have __ of __ attending. There is no “decline” line, and the second space I’ll fill in before sending my invites.

I put actual names, space for accepts/declines and meal choice.  I am making it clear that invites are not transferable.  If you husband is out of town, you do not get to bring your cousin.

I agree with PP, that people may want to substitute, so if there is any way you can print or write the names of the invited people, on each RSVP, do it. We had someone who wanted to substitue their 9 year old daughter for a husband “who might have to work;” it was a childfree event and I was happy it was caught in time, so I didn’t have to pay the full adult rate, for a kid to wrinkle their nose at adult food.

We did that too. I think I learned about that line from weddingbee too. Writing in a number is faster than writing in all the names on the RSVP. No matter what you do, though, there will always be people who try to bend the rules.
