Just go with small pencil numbers on the back. We didn’t get any without names, but we also didn’t have anyone notice the pencil marks either.

@FutureMrsLodge  I’m so glad you found a system! We had a really big wedding, meaning we had LOTS of returns with just boxes checked, just names but no info re: coming or not or food, and even a BLANK card! I skipped the black light pen purchase and just kicked it elementary-school-style. We wrote with the ‘switcher’ side and then when they came back, we went over that corner with the color side to show the numbers. It was actually pretty fun to ‘decode’ my invisible numbers on each RSVP that came in 🙂

I got the pen for a little over a $1 with light from a company in China. It took a few weeks to arrive though but I am so glad I did! There were several cards that were illegible. And no one put a return address on the envelope.
