    I think it depends on the level of formality that you desire.  Will you be writing Mr. & Mrs. John Smith or John & Suzy Smith on the front of the envelope?  If so, then you might want to keep it consistent inside on the RSVP.  Just a thought…

    While I’m not typically a big fan of the M (I tend towards informal), I think with the layout of your RSVP, you kind of need it. My fear with dropping it would be that a fair number of people would just think it was a dividing line, and fail to write their name at all! People manage to make some really dumb mistakes while filling out RSVPs.

    We’re writing “Names” instead of “M” because at least 1/4 of the people we are inviting are doctors, and it’s annoying to cross out the “M” and put “D” instead!
