I believe it’s for the guest to write in “Mr.” or “Mrs.” or “Ms.” on their response.

Our placecards also came with the preprinted M

Mr, ms or mrs. Although my husband usually uses it as the first letter of Matt. 🙂

I’m pretty awful at etiquette, but I would guess it’s supposed to be the beginning of Mr/Mrs and they write in the rest of their name…maybe?

I’m confused about the “Will ____ attend.” Do they have to write “not” if they’re not coming? Do they leave it blank if they are attending?? It’d almost be easier to do a facebook thing and have people click yes/no – much less headache!

lol, when my friend got married she sent out these kind of traditional response cards and apparently a lot of people held onto them for awhile because they were confused about what to write on that line and too shy to ask. One very young lady finally called the bride asked if everyone was just supposed to write their first names on there. It was so cute. Now we joke that all of our friends are named “M’Sarah” and “M’Robert”.

I was staring at my RSVP cards last night thinking “well, that’s lame…” but then realized it was for Mr. and Mrs.  Yeah, definitely had a duh moment.  😉

I think it’s dumb that all RSVPs seem to have that pesky M. It throws off my handwriting when I try to respond. I just usually end up handwriting “Mr. and Mrs G________” and ignoring the M that’s there for me.

Don’t feel bad!  I thought it meant Mr/Mrs/Ms but I wasn’t totally sure either and I had to ask the girl at the store.

We actually removed the “M__________” on the reply cards and put “Name __________” because English is not the first language for many guests we invited.  I am pretty sure they wouldn’t have known what the M was for.

The M always confused me too!

On ours, we asked people to circle a ‘yes we’ll be there’ or ‘no we can’t make it’ category. and then just a line for names. Tried to make it as easy as possible!
