I had planned on doing this but amid the stress of everything I just ended up stuffing RSVP cards and hoping for the best.  It occurred to me that it would take a lot of time match up each card to invite to envelope.  I didn’t have any problems!

I’m glad I read this because I am in the middle of putting together my invites and I completely forgot.

I searched all over for invisible ink pens and couldn’t find any so I just sent them out and hoped for the best!  Every single one came back fine (and on time) but it sounds like we were just lucky.

@Natalieh86:  I numbered mine as I did them. I had the addresses numbered already so I could count as I went and make sure I didn’t skip any, even though I was highlighting names as completed. It didn’t take much time to write a little 24 or whatever on the abck of a card before stacking it with tehr est of teh invitation and slipping it in the envelope. I mean, I already had to pen out to write tha addresses on the main envelope.

(I’m telling you this less for you, but more so for people considering this for the future who might be deterred by your comment.)

@mrsSonthebeach:  Yeah I think my lack of motivation was situational.  I was also working on finals at the time, so I prioritized.  Also it helps if your guest list is spread out geographically.  They’ll always have zip codes!

I did the same thing as @mrsSonthebeach, but I assumed I was just being anal-retentive.  So glad to see I’m not the only one! 😉 

We were pretty systematic – counted out all the enclosures we would need before we started assembling, counted out stamped RSVP envelopes for US guests vs. non-stamped for international guests, numbering the RSVPs, etc.  I’m glad we did it that way because we quickly realized that one of the invitation suites was missing a hotel enclosure (my bad – was watching MasterChef) and it only took 2 minutes to fix.

I numbered ours on the back corner with visible ink, much like you. So far we haven’t had any back with no name which is great. We have had people respond leaving their entree selection blank? And there are clear instructions to pick something haha.

thanks for posting this, i will definitely try to remember to number mine 🙂 although i will probably be writing names on the RSVP card as well so people can’t write in someone else’s name! (along with having a checkbox for can/not attend)
