Could you put “_ of _ accept with pleasure”? This might be weird for a one-person invite but I doubt they would think much of it after sending the RSVP.

AdaLee:  I agree with the PP. Instead of having 3 lines, just do two.

__of___ Accept with pleasure

___ Declines with regret

Also, are you pre filling the 2nd line for the #?

AdaLee:  I may steal your idea, I like that! You could put “accept(s)” what way it works for both?

When I did my RSVP’s  I actually typed each RSVP with;

“We have reserved 2 seats in your honor”

_ Accepts With Pleasure

_ Declines With Regrets

 

Since I did my invitatons myself I just updated each RSVP card before printing for that household, the number changed according to how many people in the house were invited. It was a lot neater than hand writing it in. To make things easier I printed all the RSVP’s in groupings by “number of seats reserved” this way I wasn’t updating the number everytime I got to a new guest. So all the “2” were printed at the same time, then the “3”.

I wouldn’t use M______. Many people don’t know how to fill it out. We used Name_____ instead

AdaLee:  Thanks for posting this! I was just thinking about my RSVP wording a few days ago and I was wanting to do exactly what you are with the # attending along with a meal choice.

I think you should delete this line “___of ___ ATTENDING”

 

and write “We have reserve_____seats in your honor” instead. 

 

and I would add an email address or phone number in case they have any questions.

And you should label all your rsvp cards just in case people might forget to write their names. Yes people do forget to write their names. 

and ” the label each guest entree with initial is fine” no one will care if it is just one person.

By The Way you should actually write the food name on there instead of chicken, beef, veg

Write prime rib, chicken jameson. or seafood stuff cod for example and maybe add the description of each entree on the back of the rsvp. Your guest will find this very helpful.

We also used the “We have reserved ___ seats in your honor” line in our RSVPs. In addition to the “accept” box to check, we have additional lines asking for number of children and number of adults. That way we can make sure we have enough kid favors for the youngsters and also so the guests will clarify how many are attending.

I love the way you did _ of _

we did that for ours, it really worked out that way. 

The reserving so many seats in your honor sounds great, but what if you reserved 2 and only 1 person can come? 

i think the way you worded it is perfect.
