Ok, so I’m having a very small wedding (about 20-25 guests). We’re working on sending out invites out this week.
Our guests will only consist of IMMEDIATE family and a handful of good friends. Because we are not doing extended family, and are trying not to let this get too expensive, we are trying to keep this fair by not letting our friends bring guests. Well, only one couple will, but that is because we are friends with both.
So, I’m confused as to what to do with the RSVP card. Our friends will only be bringing themselves – so my question is, should we just write their names on the card, instead of having m_______________? That way it is clear it is just an invitation for them (even though I think they know at this point). Or should we leave it blank anyways and have them write their names?

I think writing in the names is far more personal anyways. I will be doing the same, but I am cheating and using an excel spreadsheet to insert the names during printing. My guests will thank me for it, because my handwriting is TERRIBLE :P.

We did the same thing. The only hard part was so many people in my Fiance family have the same names and I am concerned about getting confused when the rsvp cards come in.

I typed in all the names on each card.

I’m using mail merge on Word to insert first and last names.

If you are printing your own, just go ahead and print the names to avoid confusion on all sides. If you are getting them from a catalog/website and they only come with a M_____ line, then leave them be.
