Speaking of RSVP cards....

What are you guys putting on them??? Mine are turning into a small novel lol!


 


Kindly respond by the first of September


_____ seat(s) have been reserved in your honour


M _______________________________________________


____ Joyfully Accepts


_____ Regretfully Declines


 


Total Number Attending _____


 


Please initial your choice of entrée:


_____ Prime Rib     


                                    _____ Salmon                     


_____ Chicken


This is what I have up to this point, but its really squeezed onto one card... Do you think about the food choices I can just list the basic food or should I give more of a description.. Do you think there is anything I can leave off. I really like having the part where I tell them how many are invited, and the M______ has to stay....... I am thinking of making it double sided - what do you guys think about that?!

What do you mean number them????


 


 


Kohler - helpful site! Makes me feel a lot better about mine being a bit lengthy. But hopefully it will clear up any confusions!

If you number your RSVPs and coordinate that with your invite list, if you have a problem reading the name on the RSVP card..you can figure out who it was from from the initial list you have.

I don't think a description of the food choices is necessary.  I think the way you have it is just fine.


I wouldn't do double-sided....you'd be surprised at how people won't realize that they have to turn the card around.  Can you put the "Regretfully declines" on the same line with 'Joyfully accepts' to save some space?

Yah, I have never had one with a food discription...


To simplify put choices all on one line- it won't look like too much then...

The wording on your RSVP card is great. You've made it very clear what information you need but it's still friendly. ;-) I wouldn't add the food descriptions on the RSVP card, it'll just get too wordy. If you want, you can put the descriptions on your website if you have one. I agree with HMM that you should try to put all the food choices on one line.


I HIGHLY recommend numbering your RSVP cards to correspond with your invite list. I just penciled a number on the back... the guests never noticed. We had at least dozen of them come back either in Chinese (with neither DH or I can read) or they were for a name that we didn't know. We even had a couple where the guest forgot to write in their name! Crazy.


Good luck!

I agree with HolyMolyMatrimony that the food items should be on one line.  You can kinda see mine in my bio.

I just started working on this today and couldnt decide how to word it. I like when the guests write back funny things.

We decided to do postcards for simplicity and to cut cost.  We're having a buffet due to the different ethnic choices...this works to my benefit since I don't need to worry about each guest's preference.  Per Mrs.Mandy's suggestion, I added the "reserved for your party" to avoid +2 rsvp's.  Here's what I did:
