I wanted to share my RSVP cards because they came out beautifully and are nearly foolproof. I spent a rediculous amount of time researching reply cards and making mine the easiest possible.
I read everyone’s posts on how people couldn’t fill these out correctly, how they invited a huge number of perviously uninvited guests, how it was impossible to tell who’s reply card they got back, ect. (the list was long). I came up with a solution to everything and (with a little help from Mrs. Lemon) made the perfect RSVP card. I hope you agree.
I made 4 versions, each with exactly as many name slots as people invited.
The best part: Its a postcard, yay cheaper postage! with a place on the back to put your address, a stamp, and a return address so you always know who sent their reply (I wrote it for them and it has already come in handy). Its been foolproof so far on accept/decline and meal selection, but not in uninvited write-ins which I think people are just going to do no matter what. Heres how they fit in my invitation 😀

What a great idea! It’s completely foolproof! I’m going to have to copy you when we do our invitations. 🙂

I’m currently working on how to word my RSVP’s to make it CRYSTAL clear that only X amount of people are invited. Something along the lines of “x amount of seats have been saved for you”… you know.

We did similar cards, but I printed ours myself, so I merged in everyone’s names on the name lines. We had 0 uninvited guests, and I knew who every single reply card was from. I think one couple didn’t mark what they wanted to eat. It worked great! I hope you have just as much luck! And the postage savings was wonderful. 🙂 Be smarter than us though, and if you have any extra postcard stamps, remember to take them on your honeymoon. We had to buy more and now have 2 lifetime supplies. Oops!

Great job! Did you print them up yourself?

Wow, 4 versions? You really went all out!
But be prepared for someone, somewhere, to screw up anyway! It wouldn’t be an RSVP card without someone following simple instructions, lol 🙂

I printed them all myself and unfortunately, I have gotten a couple of people making up +1 seats for themselves. I could have filled in the name slot for them, and If I could do it all over, I would.

To avoid that, we had a line “We have reserved __ seats in your honor” and filled in EXACTLY how many seats they had. So far, nobody has added any extras other than what they were allotted… so far.
