    I don’t know–I think that “solo”/”plus one” line is going to confuse a lot of guests.  I would at least put “we have reserved X seats” but you might think about changing it instead to something like “__ of __ attending” and fill in the second blank to be sure they understand how many seats are reserved.

    I haven’t done mine yet, obviously, since my wedding is so far off still, but that’s what I’m leaning towards. People seem to get very confused very easily!

    I always assumed you knew by how the envelope is addressed how many people are invited.

    If it says “Mr. John Doe”, it’s 1

    If it says “Mr. John Doe and Guest”, it’s 2

    I’ve never seen a response card where they tell you how many people are invited…

    That wording seems confusing.

    We put “_ seats have been reserved in your honor” on our RSVP cards. No one was confused. We also numbered the back of our RSVP cards so we could figure out who a card belonged to if it came back blank.

    Good luck!

    We have the “We have reserved _ Seat(s) in your honor….  just makes it easy for everyone. Makes it clear for people who might not understand otherwise.
