    That isn’t asking how many are declining, it’s an either or situation.  Either, yes, you’re coming and here are the number attending, or no, you’re all declining.  It’s pretty standard, but I also always wondered if people could just put a zero on the first line.

    I think if I got that one, I would just fill in the first line and send it back. Unless neither of us could go, and then I would only fill in the second line. 🙂

    I just have a number attending line. If they are declining, then they just put 0! I think I’ve seen the “regretfully decline” option once or twice in the 20+ weddings I’ve been to.

    You want the regretfully decline in there. If you don’t give people the option to send back a decline than you are going to be wondering if they haven’t received your invite, haven’t decided whether or not they’re going, whether they’ve decided not to go and didn’t have a place to write it. This will help you know who to track down for RSVPS.

    i see what you’re saying. I’ve never seen it done that way, but I think it could work. On our RSVP card, “Regretfully Decline” was paired up with “Accept with Pleasure” (or something like that). Guests would check-mark whichever, and then fill in the number attending.
