My FH and I are getting married close to our home (the florida keys). However, all of our family lives far away so this is essentially a destination wedding for them. Basically, all of our guests will have to travel. I’m just wondering how to word our RSVP cards when there are multiple guests in the same household and some members of the household may attend while others will not.
For example, my high school age cousins live with my uncle and aunt. My uncle is definetly coming, but my aunt and cousin/s may or may not (due to prom the night before our wedding). This is the case for the majority of my family. I am inviting children (all of my cousins), but I know many of my aunts/ uncles will choose not to bring their kids with them.
We planned on sending only one invitation per household. How do I word our RSVP card to get a clear, definitive answer of who will and who will not attend from each household? Or should I just send multiple RSVP cards (one for each invited guest) with each invitation.
Any thoughts? Suggestions? Please help! I really want to be clear about who will and will not attend from each household! 🙂

I put a line for the number attending.

@JoJo Bananas- That works. I just hope my guests will be sure to list the names of those attending. (i.e. in case my uncle choses to bring the nonprom cousin, instead of his wife).

I made an RSVP card with specific spaces for 6 guests (that’s the largest family size we’re inviting)
there’s also a post on here that has an RSVP with this same concept but different theme/color

Ours have check for can’t wait/can’t come, and then it says “Who’s coming?” with four lines beneath. Each line is blank (for a name) and then at the end has check box for either chicken or pork (our dinner options). Sorry I can’t upload a photo right now; I’m not on my own computer!

I actually printed all the names on the cards when I was making them. I just didn’t want to show a card with a real name on it.

I wish I had seen this before going to the printer last week!
Similar situation where there’s aunts, uncles, cousins at same address but not sure who might attend. Also, it’s a low key semi-elopement/destination wedding. We put a place on the RSVP cards for a number, as well as the blank spot for the name but not sure if they’ll list all the names or not.
Fortunately they’re all pretty good with email or on facebook so I can follow up with them that way if I have questions (or call, of course).

My mom, sister, sister’s boyfriend, other sister, and Grandma all live and/or use my moms address. I sent them all invites, and all RSVPS. I allowed the boyfriends of my sisters obv to reply on the same RSVP but all in all I sent a total of 5 seperate RSVP cards. That way it still looked pretty and I had all the meal choices seperate.
