Another bee actually suggested we use the crayola magic markers and write the number on the back of the rsvp card (invisible), this way when you get one without a name you could just use the other side of the marker and see what number it is.. i thought that was pretty brilliant and the guests would never notice!

Oh wow and so much cheaper and easier than ordering that black light pen from ebay or amazon or whatever. I’m stealing this!

lol that is so stupid. I mean come on your name isn’t on the outside envelope and if you don’t write your name on the card then how am I supposed to know who you are!! duhhh

Stupid people get saltine crackers and water! 😉

good idea about numbering the cards!!

We wrote the number w/a normal black pen in the top right corner. It’s small, but clear enough for us to read. It definitely helps because not everyone puts a return address label on the envelope.

Aren’t the envelopes return addressed? I return addressed everyone’s envelopes for them… I thought thats just how it worked?

Yeah I did this and it’s been an amazing help!  So far only one blank, BUT I knew exactly who they were!

We numbered ours… and we got an RSVP back… with NO RSVP card in it! – haha!  I played detective using the postmark on the envelope.  My vote is to number your envelopes!! 🙂

I ordered the black light pen and it was only $1.39. I haven’t had any RSVPs come back yet without a name but still a lot more to come back yet. It was so easy to use and you can’t see it at all!
