you can always write out the names for each guest with a “will attend” or “must decline” next to it.  that seems pretty foolproof.

We used the phrase ” —- seats have been reserved in your honor.”  Nobody complained and we had 0 people show up that were not invited.  Wink

I feel the same way. Unfortunately, my family is rude and they will bring there friend’s friend and so on. So I’m putting on my R.S.V.P. cards We have reserved ____ number of seats in your name.

We used:

_____ seats have been reserved in your honor.

I didn’t think it was rude at all (or I wouldn’t have used it).  And, even still – I still got the “is my child invited” question.  

I do think it takes the guess work out for some and will reduce the number of random guests!

 (I filled in the blank with a number).

I don’t think it is rude, and I plan on using the ” __ seats in your honor”….on my invites as well.

Nope! We’re doing the same: “We have reserved __ seat(s) in your honor”

We had each guest’s name printed on the RSVP card, which did help to idiot-proof things for us. This is especially helpful if there is a meal choice.

But no, “___ seat(s) in your honor” is not rude. However, if they are so bold to bring uninvited guests, don’t be surprised if they cross out and edit that number.

I’m just curious if anyone has a photo or knows where I can find a photo of an RSVP card with this wording?  I would love to use something like this but I’m curious to know what the rest of the RSVP looks like.  THANKS!

you know, i think all women- engaged or otherwise- should make a pact to tell all the men they know that only the names on the envelope are invited, and then we all wouldnt have to jump through these crazy wording hoops.

We chose to have a personalised RSVP with each guests name on, because we have a small wedding (only 55 guests) and only have room for those 55.

This is the example i used as inspiration

I can’t seem to upload the templates, but if you would like them i have them with 1,2,3 or 4 lines. Let me know if you need them.
