I just got my first 2 RSVP cards back today. Yay!I am going to go crazy checking the mailbox everyday until the wedding now…
Anyways, we will probably have to contact them to be sure, but how would you interpret this response?
We invited Doe family, wrote out all four names on the invitation, and put “we have reserved 4 seats” on the RSVP card. On the name line, they only have John and Jane written. Do you think it means they are not planning on bringing their two children? Or did they think that we only needed the names to identify the family on the card and they really intend to bring everyone?

I would assume it would be just those two, but call to be sure.

I would assume just the two of them, but I would follow up!

Just call and ask. It’s not tacky.

That’s horribly ambiguous. Unfortunately now you have to call 🙁

It’s not unfortunate. Thank them, tell them how excited you are (first card, etc) and just make sure you want to know what they meant to keep track of numbers (i.e. you don’t have a preference). For others, who have yet to send invitations, I’ve seen RSVP cards that include a space for the number in your party. It clears it all up.

I think it’s better for you to clarify with them. What if you make a wrong assumption and get unpleasant surprise on your wedding day?

i’d just give them a call and say ‘got your RSVP card today, so excited to see the 4 of you at the wedding’ they’ll tell you if you’re wrong!
