Personally, I would just leave it as is, with the caveat that people may just not send them back if they wish to decline.  It could also be that your parents’ friends may be of an older generation that has not always had rsvp cards (which I understand were not always ubiquitous) and trust them to figure out that they can just write you a note.  That is a pickle though!

I would just let it go since there’s no "pretty" way of fixing it.  I think some people who do not plan to attend will see that and figure that you only want people attending to RSVP, so they will not send it back if they don’t intend to come.  So just be prepared to make a few phone calls.  Most people, hopefully, will just mark down zero or write on there that they can’t make it.  That’s what I’d do, at least.

If I received an invite like this, and couldn’t attend, I would still figure I should send it back, and put in 0 for the number.  I agree that you need to be prepared to make some calls.  But  I would thik at least some of the "no’s" will figure they still need to respond.
