I really wanted to do an RSVP with multiple options like …
___ Will be there with bells on
___ Will be there without bells
___ Will be there, undecided on bells
___ Will do not be there, heard people will be wearing bells
But, I’m afraid that people will get confused, or opt to be silly and mark an incorrect option..
So I think I’m just going to do
___ Accepts with pleasure
___ Declines with regret
And I found this super funny option that says “P.S. If you don’t RSVP, bring a chair and a sandwich”
Tacky? Yes? No? My wedding is formal and so are the invites but I am injecting quite a bit of non traditional/unique details.

I love that idea! Unfortunately, fiance’s super-traditional family would go mental over it. Still, I’d consider ordering a few separate sets of invites – these could go to close friends/family that would “get” the joke, and the traditional RSVPs could go to the family and friends that would just be confused by it.

Depends on your audience. Are you a jokester? I like the second idea a lot with the bring a chair and a sandwich. But it def wouldn’t work for me because I’m just not funny like you are lol

@ChuckNorris: I actually don’t think I’m funny at all! Lol it would be my Fiance who is more of a jokester. I just really appreciate the idea of making the wedding about being fun and celebrating rather than super stuffy.. but I am just walking a fine line because I want it to come off as quircky not tacky. The wedding is going to be super modern and chic, but for instance the ring bearer is walking down with a sign that says “NAME, now is your last chance to run!”, and we’re doing bubbles instead of rice, and little things like that 🙂

yeah depends on audience and i guess how formal your wedding is…
i would not do it cause it may confuse people and may be harder to get rsvps back faster

I love the second one! May have to steal it. Nothing pisses me off more (in the wedding world) than people that dont RSVP and still expect to be able to show up and get free food.
I dont really understand the bell thing though. Unless its just a funny with no backstory to it?

I think it’s funny, but I could never pull off doing something like that. Plus, I know people who would actually not RSVP and show up with a lawn chair and a sandwich…

Firstly, I love “sassy rsvp”s.
I also thinking the “if you don’t” is cute and hilarious. But I would be wary of how the reception of it would be with people like, Fiance grandmother who is 80 and may not get the facetious tone and actually believe we were serious and being rude. o__o

I love the first one, but I can see a lot of people not getting it if that makes sense. Second one is a much safer and clearer option, with humour 🙂

I like the part about the bells, I laughed. Maybe bring it back to 3 options instead of 4 and include the words yes or no to make it more clear. For example,
Yes, we will be there with bells on
Yes, we will be there without bells
No, we will not be there, heard people will be wearing bells
However, I don’t like the PS part, it comes across as being really rude in my opinion. It’s fine to joke about something like that here but it’s not appropriate to say something so snarky to your guests.

Well, speaking as Sassy, I think it’s funny, but I wouln’t do it. Not everyone in your audience is going to get or like it.
Something similar for a dinner party with your peers would be fabulous, but not with such a mixed group as wedding guests.

As another Sassy opinion, plesae do not do this. If your wedding is formal you should be formal accross the board.

IDGAF if people don’t like it, I’m actually doing the first option. I know what you mean about people not getting it, so I’m actually cutting out two of the options and just using “will attend with bells on” and “will not attend, heard there will be people wearing bells.”

hahahahahah I LOVE the bring your own chair and sandwich if you don’t rsvp part. Wish I would have seen that before my wedding.

@Sassygrn: I agree that this won’t work for a formal wedding.
I don’t like it anyway, even if you were doing a backyard BBQ wedding. It’s just so overdone, I feel like it’s everywhere these days. I love the thing about the chair and sandwich – because what bride doesn’t feel that way – but if I received an invitation with that on it, I’d be really put off.
