I would eliminate the (s) on Declines, with regrets. It should read:
Accepts with pleasure
Declines with regret
That’s the only thing I found! 🙂

I would suggest not putting the hotel info on there. If you specify your wedding website on your invitation, your guests can log on and get all the information including hotel accommodations, must-do/must-see/must-eat while in the area, venue information (directions/map), weather network, full event itinerary, dress code, gift registry, etc.
Again, it depends on the look and feel (of the invitations) that you’re going for. We have formal invitations and this helped make them look more streamlined and not busy, cluttered or overwhelming.

@Buboys_Gurl: I’m not listing my website on the wedding invitation because my actual invitation is more formal. This wording is just for the accommodation enclosure card and then below the solid line is the wording for the rsvp card. I was going to list the website on my accommodations card. I think accommodation cards are fairly common. It was my understanding that many people don’t even go to the websites…so listing hotel info is important imo…if anything I would consider eliminating the website though.

Since these are enclosure cards, keep the hotel info. It will be very useful to the non-internet uses among your friends and family.
Remove the commas and the plurals from the RSVP card as PP said.
Are there only two lines? Do you have any invitations for more than 2 people? Are you accidentally opening yourself up to have people invited alone think they can add a guest because there are two lines there?

As PPs said, remove the commas. Definitely keep the hotel info on the enclosure cards.
Everything else sounds fine. 🙂

@mrsSonthebeach: Yeah the two line thing is sort of getting to me to. I’d say 90% have 2 people (either couple or a single person with a guest). There aren’t any one person invites. Maybe 3 families (where the child isn’t old enough for their own invite…because pretty much everyone in my family is just old enough to get their own and not old enough to have young children).
I guess I was just trying to figure out a way for people to list the name and choice….i’ve seen the initial each guest choice below thing but I think it get confusing because I am afraid whoever fills it out will just initial one and then am I suppose to assume both people want it? Anyway…do you think I should put one of those # of seats reserved in your honor lines too…would that help? I really am not concerned of people adding to the list though…well to a certain extent….

@August252012: Is it possible to create RSVP cards with a few more lines for the larger groups, and just one line for anyone who is single and not allowed a guest?
Post # 10
@asscherlover: Umm….well, the single person thing isn’t a problem. All the single people on my guest list get a guest. As far as making some that have more blanks….I doubt that is an option bc I’m getting them letterpressed.

I think I posted on your other thread before… it is accommodation, not accommodations. Accommodation is a noun, and is both singular and plural. Accommodations is a verb, which describes the act of accommodating. So, for example, if you want to describe the accommodations you are making for your guests, that would include things like the transport which you are providing for them, the gift baskets which you are giving to them, special help for handicapped guests etc etc
If, on the other hand, you only want to describe the place where they might be staying, you want the plural noun: accommodation.

To solve this problem, I used this sort of format:
___ accepts with pleasure
___ declines with regret
Please indicate your entree selections:
Kindly respond by xxxxxxxxx.

@Rachel631: So even if there are 2 hotel blocks you wouldn’t make it plural?
Post # 14
@ElbieKay: I considered this but I don’t want to call everyone to find out whose entree is which….the whole initialing statement imo gets confusing too. One of my friends did the format you have listed and she had to call everyone to figure out which person wanted the chicken, and which wanted the beef.

If you leave the addresses, I would either abbreviate both Street and Boulevard or neither. My eyes don’t like the mismatch. Otherwise, it looks good to me.
