    I vote fro option 2 because we had a few instances where only one member of the couple could come (or only 2 out of 4 family members could attend).

    Can you say __ of two accept with pleasure instead of will attend?

    I know that this isn’t want you asked, but perhaps you are open to changing the accepts with pleasure to just plain accepts/declines.  They may be accepting with regret, but feel they have to.  I don’t like people to tell me how I feel about something.  Sorry just a pet peeve.

    @andielovesj: You are absolutely correct about this. 

    @Snow2bunny:  If you follow the traditional practice of using inner envelopes on which you list the names of each person in the household who is being invited, this should resolve any instances of people making incorrect assumptions about who is and who is not being invited to the wedding.  I followed these traditional etiquette guidelines, and we did not have one single “plus one” or uninvited person show up at our wedding. 

    Below is the wording recommended by the wedding etiquette experts I consulted and which we used on our response cards:

    The favour of a reply is requested before the first of May

    M__________________________________

    _______ will attend

    _______ unable to attend
