Instead of saying “will attend” and “will not attend” try…

 

We look forward to celebrating with you. Please respond by August 1, 2013.

Accept ___

Regret___

Number attending ___

 

That way if ou are sending it to a couple and only one can come, you know a head count. 

 

I found this wording on google images.

@missjewels: I think if you’re worried about people adding on to the RSVPs, the first way is a really good way to make it clear (politely) who exactly is invited.

I like the original better (although you can switch words to accept and regret).  I am NOT asking for number coming.  The invites are for specifica people.  You either come or you do not.  The invitiation is not transferable.  If one 1/2 of couple can not make it, then the other half can come, not come or call me.  But can NOT just subsititue.  So I am NOT writing “number attending”
