I was looking in all over the threads but could not find what I was looking for...

 

On my RSVP cards should I be asking how many are attending? And get the names of the people that are attending.

 

What type of words are you doing? Not sure what verbage to use.

 

Also if my wedding is Nov 28 09 when should I ask for the RSVP to be returned? Is July to early? I want to give myself enough time to buy more supplies if needed but don't want to rush people that are still trying to decide if they will be attending.

Thanks

Mary

You can try the basic wording below. I did ask for names as I had place cards individualized. Depending on the travel needs, July may be too soon for a November wedding. Do you have a TA you can ask? My deadline was 2 months prior to the wedding.

 

The favor of a reply is requested

These are all really good questions and probably ones I should be concerned with myself since my date is just before yours!

 

I think it's traditional to ask how many people are coming. I would do so especially since you're having a DW. On weddingpaperdivas.com they have good examples of wording for RSVP cards.

 

I think you're only supposed to send the invitations out within 2 months of your wedding date. But those are according to etiquette experts, so if you don't want to follow it, it's up to you.

 

I think right now with the economy, if someone hasn't decided within 3 months of your date, they probably aren't coming...but then again some people like to make last minute decisions.

 

Most wedding websites offer a RSVP function. If you haven't sent out the STDs, maybe you can ask that people RSVP on your website.

 

Good luck...I will stay tuned to see what others have to say. :)
