They look great, are you not having them put their names on the RSVP card itself?  If you are doing something different I would love to hear about it!

stephncollins:  here is what we did, at least one one of the sides. It was a postcard, so the back had our address to mail back to.

I think they look fine, and I like that you are specifying the # of seats they get. Should help limit confusion among your guests. But yeah, I was wondering, like PP, how are you going to keep track of whose RSVP it is if they don’t write their names in? You could number them in the corner and then keep a spreadsheet, but say you invited 3 people and only 2 listed that they are coming, how will you know who those 2 are? I would make the flourish design at the bottom more simple so you have more space for words.

These are mine but I’m having Minted add in the meal selection as well which isn’t shown.  While I’m going to have a spot for people to write their names in, I’m also going to number them on the back with black light pen so that I can keep track in case someone forgets their name.  Maybe PP is going to do something like that to keep track?

stephncollins:  i agree with pp and simplify the detail at the bottom.  maybe remove the first line.  add the M _______ (name) line.  remove the attending vs not attending line and change the one above it to be: _(blank)_ of __2__ guests attending.  you could also simplify the entree options to be: new york strip, pork loin, vegetarian fettucini alfredo.  Also, you might want to change it to “Initial each guest’s entree choice” if you are having a plated dinner so you know who gets what.

stephncollins:  Thank you!! I found some samples from what others had used here on the site, and was able to make it my own with Vistaprint, which is where we did out invites. No other site allowed for the customization that didn’t require someone else to do it, and I liked how they turned out. Granted, the design didn’t match out invites (I guess they did have polka dots), but it worked for what we needed it for, and what information we needed.

However, only some wrote their names as instructed and most put X’s… so that just changed the way I had the meals assigned to each person/family. It still worked, though!

Ours is quite simple and since we will be having menu cards at the reception we did not include entrees but I do love the addition of requesting each guest to suggest a song they would dance to 🙂 

 

Also we put a “__ attending” line so when we mail them out it will clearly state how many people are invited. 

 

Don’t mind the blurred out spaces just for secuirty reasons 🙂

stephncollins:  ah, makes sense.  yea, we only had 2 nut allergies and 2 strict kosher, so we just spoke with them before hand and told them we had them covered.  our meal options were basic so we put them all on one line.

stephncollins:  Thank you they’re being letterpressed so most efficient way was to keep everything one color but I’m ok with that as we did a colorful floral liner. Fiance is a Graphic Designer so we were able to save a little because he designed them.
