    It's fine. People are smart! RSVP on front with a note to see reverse, menu infomation on back : (20 votes)

    I think you will be alright, especially if you putthe note on the bottom! You might have one or two misses despite all that, but those people you could always call up or email? I’d do it that way, I’d rather save on the paper and maybe deal with a couple mishaps than print an extra card for evvvvery invite. You never know, even if you DID print an extra menu card, someone could forget to mail it with the rsvp or totally overlook it in the invite suite!

    Is your standard RSVP a postcard they will be mailing back? I assume not if you are having the options on the back and the RSVP on the front.

    I voted for the separate card. That way you can make it bigger and add the options on there, but as long as the RSVP’s aren’t postcard type then I think you could do front and back RSVP.

    Honestly, I’m in the middle of getting back my responses, and do yourself a favor and don’t assume people will figure it out…  I would use the enclosure cards and find envelopes that fit just for the sake of your sanity..

    Can you just find a larger RSVP card so you can fit everything on the front?  I think a lot of people might miss it if it’s on the back…I’d like to be positive and say everyone is smart and they’ll figure it out.  But in all honesty, my experience has been that people can be shockingly dumb.

    I would put the info on the back of the RSVP. I’d label the choice 1, 2 etc and then they would be forced to check the rest of the invite for details. They’ll find it.
