I would leave off the “(or Regretfully accept ) and (or Enthusiastically decline )”  try something else if you are going for humor.

@Captain013: I agree, its a neat idea but its hard to understand humor in words sometimes, I kinda just got confused for a few moments.

for mine I did

we have reserved ___(inserted number)___ seats for you

Names  :_______________________________

___ ready to wine dine and dance

___ sorry to miss the fun

I like your words but I think people will get confused. I wanted something different than will attend, unable to attend so I used creative wording.

These might be more of what you are going for.

It’s not confusing to me, but trust me, you WILL have guests who can’t figure out how to fill it out! (grr…) :-/

@Captain013: haha that is hilarious I have never seen that before!!!!

 

I sent what I thought were very straight forward and standard RSVPs (with no flavor text).  I still recieved several with question marks and several with nothing written in the Number Attending blank. 

Not sure why it is so confusing.  You will have to call some people to verify no matter what.  At least I am going to have to.

We used the bells language as well and had some people ask what the deal with the bells was. You either have a sense of humor or you don’t. 🙂

@Swoontobee Mrs.G: this is very nice… yay. I am so excited I have been looking for wording for my cards… that we choose how many people will attend and they dont get to write it in… how did these rsvps go?

I dont think it is confusing but could be helpful to change to somehting llike this:

Kindly respond by October 5th, 2011

We have reserved 2 seats in your honor

M____________________________________

M____________________________________

___ We accept with pleasure

___ We decline with regret

 

So the lines where they would write their names would cordinate with the number of seats that will be reserved. Also remember to number your RSVP cards on the back or something, i have had a handful come back with no names and i didnt number mine 🙁 opps
