So Fiance and I revieved a wedding invite for a wedding that is a few months before ours. It was addressed to both of us. What is the “M” for on the RSVP and what do we write there? Or in the guests part because the invite has both of our names on it.
Also, I’m DIY’ing my invites, do I have to put the ‘M’ on mine?

For you to fill out your proper forms of adress and names.

@sjs: Don’t! Lots off people don’t understand what that line is. Darling Husband and I changed it on our reply cards to just say
because we’d heard some pretty funny stories of what people had written on that line mistakenly.

haha, i know what the M is for, but i hate it!!! Talk about old-school things that no one uses or understands anymore! We are using “Name(s) ___________________”

@babu22: Actually old school is when there was no RSVP card, and people knew to send a formal note to the hostess accepting or declining her invitation. Nobody does this anymore, so RSVP cards were created, probably in the last 40-60 years or so.

My opinion is that these days it should be whatever you want. For my wedding everyone understood the ‘M’ and we did it just to nod to tradition. But you could just leave a line, write something like Guests:. Again, unless you really want to be formal or follow tradition, do what feels right (my .02)

I never liked the M. I feel strange starting to right a word without the first letter. Especially since I’ve always just used “Ms” so it’s only one lonley s on the handwritten line before my name. We used “Name(s)”
