The number idea on the back sounds good! or do they come with an evelope for people to send em back to you? you may be able to write their names on that.

No big deal! Just use a pencil to lightly write a number on the back of the RSVP card. Number the people on your guest list with the same number and if you get any RSVP cards back without any names, you will be able to reference the number on the back of the card.

We will have a line on our RSVP cards, but I was going to do this just in case.

The number on the back is a great idea!!!  I am doing it as well just in case people still forget to put their names down!!!

Love your invites!!! I agree with pps, numbering the backs will work. Even with a line, some people neglected to fill in their names on our rsvps 🙂

I really like your invitation suite! And I love that you have a little section for people to write stuff. Maybe your oops isn’t too big a deal — if people write anything, they’d probably think, “Oh, I guess I need to put my name on here, too” or something, you know? And definitely number them before you send them out, too. =)

I would be freaking out, too, but don’t worry — from the outsider’s perspective, or at least MY perspective, it seems like it was meant to be that way! Seriously, with that little space for doodling, whatever, it might strike me as a creative way to display the traditional “M__________” line, especially with the rest of your cute suite.

And let’s face it, no matter how painfully obvious you make it that they need to put their name, there will always be the person who doesn’t put their name on it, whether because they don’t know to, or because they forgot. Which is why you should put the number on the back! =)

If you’re super stressed about it, you can write out their names on each one, but I really think you might be okay without it!

One neat idea I saw that might help if you don’t want to visibly mark up your RSVP cards is to use a blacklight visible pen (e.g. this one) that is invisible except when viewed under black light. Very high tech stuff Wink
