The second one flows better I think.

Second way. First tell who is invited, then when by and how to RSVP.

I like how it was before the changes. Especially with the reply wording. By saying ‘kindly reply ON or before’ it kind of gives the person an excuse to proscratinate an rsvp. The sooner the better!

I like the “reserved in your name”

It adds a bit of formality and oomph. Just my opinion though 🙂

I think it’s do-able and works. Maybe for the second line you could add the words,     “& Guest __________________________”

or

“& Guest

________________________________

 

Just an idea. It’s your invite though!!

Please invite all your guests by name.  It is quite rude to refer to someone as & Guest.

@andielovesj: the & Guest refers to whom the NAMED invitee is bringing.

@Leelee26:  I understand what you mean, but I agree with @andielovesj:; even if you write a name on that line it reads “Papa Bear & Guest Mama Bear” – and that sort of sounds like Mama Bear is only invited because she’s Papa Bear’s date… not truly your guest/somebody who you want to invite.  That can hurt feelings – and it’s rude to imply that you have two tiers of guests 1. Your friends  and 2. their dates. (Even if it’s the truth, we are asupposed to be equally gracious to ALL guests.)
