I think it is a wonderful idea. Guests will feel really special getting a response card with their name. It is a very personal touch.

We also put the amount of response cards according to people invited in the invitation… some couples understood and sent two back…. some couples only sent back one… either way we got the information =)

i dont think it is necessary to creat additional cards for each person (letterpress stationery pieces add up quickly, as you know!!!)

just doing one per invite and putting the “we have reserved __ seats in your honor” should be sufficient.  after all, if they ignore that and still rsvp for extra people, i think they are just as likely do the same with an extra rsvp card, ya know?

Just to warn you, some guests will cross out the 1 and may write in additional names. But  I still think its great idea to have their name on the rsvp card

I also think its a good idea to have their name already written on the card. However, I’m sure you’ll get those handful of people who write their own thing on the card.

mine was similar (2 on one reply card)

The favor of a reply is requested by June 6, 2011

                           Mr. John Smith                       


will attend________        will not attend_______


                           Mrs. Jane Smith                     


will attend________        will not attend_______


there were no spaces for them to add in any other names or #’s attending…I got married 2 weeks ago and didn’t have any uninvited guests show up, so I guess it worked!

I think this idea is splendid. Saves some trees too. I would put all the names on one card and separate it.


I’m not allowing children or insignificant dates of guests. All of my friends know that unless you’re married or in a serious relationship, you can’t bring a date. Why am I going to spend money on just anyone? I truly want people I love and care about at our wedding.

That said… I think its hard to control your guests and EVERY bride has this problem. Some of them are going to be understanding while others, not so much. Some might even bring them regardless of the rule. I would do your best to get guests to understand that weddings are expensive, kids don’t like weddings, you don’t want just anyone there (dates) you don’t know, and you don’t want anyone bringing just ANY date because they think they are allowed to.

I would do everything you can to prevent it but If this happens i hope that on your wedding day, it will be something you think about AFTER the fact. Enjoy your day girl!

@bind9449: this is perfect. Thanks for posting this. I had no clue how I was going to be specific on my rsvp cards since our guest list is limited and names are required in order for the guests to get through the gates of our venue. I just hope everyone RSVP or they can’t get in and I won’t be at the gate to know if they should come in or not.
