My wedding is quite casual, so I wrote:

Please response by (date)

___ Can’t wait to attend!

___ Upset I cannot attend


Is your wedding casual or formal?

Andrea, I see yours is May 17, too!! We have to have our numbers to the venue/caterer by 14 days before, so we put a "kindy respond by" date of April 10 (three weeks before numbers are due), assuming that will be the day some people put them in the mailbox. We’ll start calling people the week after that, giving ourselves two weeks to catch up with everyone (hopefully!). So, basically, take your numbers deadline and make your rsvp deadline three weeks before that so you don’t go crazy trying to get your final count settled. Hope this helps! Yay for another May 17ther!

I’m having an RSVP card that will note that our guests can respond via phone, our website, or email.  I know this isn’t perfect etiquette, but it will keep the invitations lighter, save us about $400 in postage and reply envelopes, and actualy fit into our very full pocketfold.  We have a total 4 people (2 couples) coming, who aren’t computer savvy, hence the phone number.

The only thing I’m sad about is no RSVP cards for keepsakes.  Oh well, I can’t have everything!

Here’s my wording:

Kindly Respond by
May 22
by visiting our website: MrandMissLatteLoveWedding.com
emailng us at: LatteLovewedding@gmail.com
or calling (Miss LattLove) at (555) 555-5555

is anyone having the food choices on their cards?  I don’t know how to smoosh everyone’s dinner requests on there too 🙁

Honestly, my fave is:

() Will be there

[] Will be square

lol. But I don’t know if we’ll actually use it. Mr. Spin (bless his traditional heart) will probably not be enthused about that phrasing. ^_^

I know for food choices people also do a check list thing, but it depends on how much room you have, of course:

Please select an entree:

[] Chicken [] Beef [] Vegetarian
