I would like to know this as well.  We are okay with having children that are in our families at our wedding but we don’t want to end up with coworkers random children that we’ve never met before.

I’d put that each person has ____ number of seats reserved in their name.  I think that’s pretty standard.

I had the same issue. I did mine something around the lines of

___seats have been reserved in your honor

Number of guests attending____

Will not attend____

Names of guests attending____________


I forgot my exact wording but you get the idea lol

I think your first option is just fine.

I also think your option is just fine!

I’ve just sent our invitations (lots going to people from overseas) and as we’re not inviting any plus-ones, we solved the issue by writing the names of the people invited on the top of the RSVP card to make it clear exactly who was invited (eg people’s children were invited, but not adult children of cousins, etc).

It ended up looking quite lovely and as we designed and produced our own invitation suite we were able to do the layout to suit.

We’re doing the same thing – our RSVPs will say “____ seats have been reserved in your honor” or “____ of ____ attending” (we will have filled out the second blank).

I was stumped by this as well (actually I still am).

But I think I’ve decided on wording it like this and actually spelling it out for them leaving no room to change it to what they want:

for example


Two Seats Have been Reserved in your honor.

__Accepts with pleasure

__Declines with regret

If anyone else has any ideas I would like to hear them!
