1) I need guests to provide me with the first and last name of each person attending our ceremony. We’re getting married in a garden that’s a tourist attraction that charges admission fees, so we’ve included a ticket in the invite, but also have to give this list to the admission booth for those who forget to bring it.
Do you think it’s obvious enough that we want people to write out their names, and whether each person is attending or not? I know most people’s full names, so it really will only be an issue for more random +1’s if people just write their first names.
2) I wanted to do something other than “accept/decline” but am dealing with very limited space. I thought the option to choose attending “in person” or “in spirit” was cute, but I showed the sample to a couple relatives, and they thought people might think “in spirit” was a reference to being dead! Or otherwise not clear enough as to which is accept, and which is decline.

Ok, I was able to post the photo in the DIY section, but was too big for here. Here’s the link:

Well even if they don’t get it you can always call and confirm names… I know it’s a pain but it defintely works.

How about something like this:
can’t make it___
Please provide full names of guests attending_____________

Finally got the photo somewhat attached… linked to the DIY section of weddingbee where they allow larger photos!

I had the reply card and it had
____ to be
____ not to be
I then changed it just to a rsvp card, because I realised that having a wedding website, will change all this as it managed the rsvp for me, also they could email and phone. So having a reply card with an envelope was just an added cost that I could cut out.
But I think they look fab anyway. Hope you find one you like!

I made the rsvp in such a way as to alert my guest that/she must provide the name of his/her guest (I personalized each rsvp).
So my reads:
… by the X of April
accepts with pleasure
declines with regret
And on the off chance that someone can’t figure it out – because there’s always one – then I will email. Fortunately, there are only two or three folks whose names I don’t know – lucky me!
