Do and of you ladies know what the “M” stands for on RSVP cards?
I know that RSVP stands for “répondez s’il vous plaît” which means “please respond” but what the heck is with the M next to the line where they write their names?

I thought it was for Mr. or Mrs.

Ms., Mr. or Mrs. Or if you are my guests, it stands for Mom, Megan, Mike, or Michelle and you just write the rest in. 🙂

Yep, for the titles…”Ms. Gemstone” or “Mr. and Mrs. Gemstone.”

Mr., Mrs., Miss, Madame or Ms. It’s just shorthand for a formal title.

I spent 30 minutes googling this the day I ordered my RSVP cards. I think it’s stupid. The line should just be blank. How hard it is for people to write the “M” themselves? They have to write the rest on the name anyway. lol
(Please don’t take offense– I don’t mean to insult anyone…)

@JenniMichele: I totally agree with you!!! I didn’t know what the M was for when I got my first invite for a friend’s wedding and I ignored it and wrote our names with no “Miss/Mr. haha

I’ve seen plenty of invites that say “Names” instead of “M.”

Yeah, it’s supposed to be a “gentler” way of telling people to write their names on the line than just flat out saying it.
People do funny things with it…I definitely got someone who just used it to start “Matt” like zoekat! I also had someone cross out the M and write “Col” to make sure we got the military title recognition in there 🙂

I’m so glad you posted this! I was thinking about the same thing just the other day and could not quite figure out what it was for! Thanks 🙂

I always found it awkward to add “s.” after the “M”, so on mine I chose to put “Names”.

Wow. I’ve never written Miss/Mrs/Ms on ANY RSVPs LOL! Oops! I thought maybe it was French again. That’s dumb. Nobody knows that! I just put people’s names on mine. That way they couldn’t RSVP for a stranger. (But they sure could show up with TWO of them anyway, LOL!)

Wait so, is the “M” standing as an abbreviation of a Ms., Mr., etc? Or do you fill in the rest? As in, should you write on the line, “r. and Mrs. John Doe”??

@littlemissmango: Yes, that’s correct. It looks weird, I know. Since Mr. Mrs. Ms. and Miss all start with M, that’s why the line starts with M. You’re left to just fill in the rest of the abbreviation.

I remember a post on an older thread that still cracks me up to this day. A Bee said that one of her guests didn’t know what to make of this and filled out the RSVP out as : “M_ I’m coming!!!”
We didn’t want to to confuse any of our guests so we just left the M’s out on ours.
