We are doing the untraditional RSVP card. In that we are not allowing guests to RSVP themselves and their sister in law and their cousin. So we are going this route
Below is the preliminary RSVP card. Our theme is rustic country chic so I think “reserved in your honor” is too elegant.
Any ideas on how we can change that up?
How about the ___ out of _____ will be attending part? Any fun ideas for that?
Thanks in advance! xoxox
___ seats are reserved in your honor
____ out of ____ will be attending

Ours have the same set up. Just make sure you address the envelope only to the people you want to invite, then fill in the reserved number and the second space of “___ of ___ will attend”.

Just so you know, this wont stop some guests from adding extra people.

@bells: hahaha Thank you… I have heard all of the horror stories but… I would rather someone cross out their number and me call them and tell them no than have them insert an obscene number of guests and have to politely explain that its not really meant to invite 6 other guests with you that I don’t know. (it happens!)
Its like two different extreme’s.

I have seen several RSVPs with the reserved X seats in your honor and I think for those brides that worked out pretty well to avoid extra guests.

@julies1949: OMG! That link is amazing. I’m breaking my head on how to word RSVP’s for the Spanish side and it’s right there. One less thing to stress about. Thanks for including that link.

@KristenGotMarried: Too funny! I wish I had seen this before we set ours up.

I wouldn’t go this route honestly. Since I’ve been getting my RSVP’s back day by day, I’ve found that even the traditional way it is hard for people to write down all of the information.
Such as ” We have reserved 3 seats in your honor”
So I don’t know if they are coming by themselves or if they are bringing their daughter(which I know she is since she is part of the wedding party) and a date.
For some reason, filling out an RSVP properly is really hard for people and I am just afraid if you go the funny route some people might get confused.
My motto for RSVP wording – KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)

@chelles07: I understand this… it is super hard for people. I certainly anticipate having to call people… especially for the family that is not very fluent in enlgish. We are not doing biligual invitations because the majority are english speaking and writing.
KISS. love it… I think!
