Hm. I guess if you want to be really picky about it, you’d write it differently depending on how many people were invited for each invitation — so the sinlges would get “accepts with pleasure” and the couples would get “accept with pleasure.” 

Of course, that’s crazy and no one does that. 🙂 Honestly, you can’t really go wrong with any of them. #3 covers all situations, #1 is right sometimes, and #2 is right somtimes.

@March3BrideToBe:  

It depends on how you want to format the RSVP.

 

If it’s one person per 2 options, it should read:

 

John Smith

__ ACCEPTS WITH PLEASURE

__ DECLINES WITH REGRET

 

Jane Doe

__ ACCEPTS WITH PLEASURE

__ DECLINES WITH REGRET

 

 

If it’s many people per 2 options:

John Smith, Jane Doe, and Baby

__ ACCEPT WITH PLEASURE

__ DECLINE WITH REGRET

Option 3 covers everything, and Regret can be singular.

1. is correct for multiple people

2. is correct for one person

3. is correct for either, so I would use this.

Regarding the regret/regrets, I believe both are correct.

I guess #3 is most correct in that it would be correct singular or plural… But for asthetics I’d to with #1 and the few people who come single can just be “wrong”.
