We don’t have a space for number of people, although we will ultimately need to know just so that we know how much food we need.  If they don’t include all the names of the guests who are invited, I will follow up to confirm who is coming.  But we are giving all adults a plus 1, and we are inviting kids, so we aren’t worried about anyone being added on.

I’m also inviting kids/ plus ones so I didn’t bother with “x amount of seats have been reserved in your honor” But if I wasnt then I would put that just to specify. I don’t have a picture but my are worded exactly like the PP except under happily declines I put a line for “number attending” in case I read someone’s writing or they think they don’t need to include “and guest” on the M line.

We’re doing a “We have reserved ___ seat(s) in your honour” line. And then our actual RSVP system is set up through our website (using RSVPify) so when people enter their name it knows their party size and only lets them respond for the people who are in their party.

anonbee4321:  It’s called RSVPify! http://rsvpify.com

Free for us as we have <100 guests but it’s pretty reasonable plan price-wise over that, too. You have the option to either embed a form directly into your website or just link to the page hosted on RSVPify. And you can customize colours, wording, etc. 🙂

This is also our issue. Here are mine (just got them today 🙂 ) I wanted to make it very clear who is invited- as Future Sister-In-Law had issues with her wedding that I am hoping to avoid.

Hi! I was so conflicted on wording, as well. We are doing no children and no plus ones, so even though I correctly addressed our envelopes, I wanted to make it crystal clear who was invited. I filled in the 2nd blank with the number of guests invited in that party. I did it this way instead of writing “__ seats have been reserved in your honor” because I heard stories of other brides’ guests inviting random people to fill their number of seats, even if those people weren’t invited. I guess the way they looked at it was because a certain number were reserved just for them, they could fill those seats however they saw fit. I didn’t want to run into that issue, and I also didn’t want to just put number of guests with a blank, as that would allow guests to fill in whatever they saw fit. So I settled on this. However, that’s not to say I have had no issues. I had one guest write in “3 of 2”, so I had to make a very awkward phone call and explain that their son is not invited. At least this way though, I avoided him showing up on our wedding day completely unexpected.

I didn’t want to do any card at all,  but compromised. The only wording was up top and said “The favour of a reply is requested by X date” engraved in black script on ecru. People figured it out.

We’re doing a madlib (which I’m super pumped about getting back). I think as long as you are clear on the envelope you won’t really have that issue. And if you do, I think you can politely call/email and say that sorry, we don’t have space for your guest.

These aren’t completely finished yet but this is likely the form they will be taking. We’re doing an inner envelope so I’m hoping to avoid having to call out guests/ number of guests specifically. Is this a mistake, is the # of seats necessary?? (a screen-shot, so fofrgive the quality)

We didn’t bother with X number of seats. My crowd isn’t one to write in extra names and I put NAME(s): at my parents request so it would be more clear. I made sure all the people will +1 had AND GUEST on thier envelopes.

I received one from my friend addressed to me and Fiance that said we have reserved 2 seats in your honor. My Fiance can’t make it, so does that mean I can bring someone else? XD
