RSVP/Response Card Tips Redux
Posted 14 March 2010 - 08:39 AM
I am writing this because someone posted the great tip that you should number the RSVP cards just in case folks returned them without a name attached. Well...sure enough...I was so excited and in a rush to get out my invites that I did not do this. Learn from my mistakes!! LOL Of course...half of the declines have come in to me with no name on them at all!!! It's only two so far, but my invites have only been out a bit over a week so it could get really bad.
I looked at the wording of my RSVP which I will print below to try to understand why folks may not have put a name on the decline. I should also note that in both cases where this happened....they checked off the "will not attend" at the spot for the Welcome dinner and left the rest of the RSVP completely blank!! I have passport invites with a boarding pass RSVP that had a seat# on them...maybe people thought that I would know ...so many folks have asked me if I made up individual seat numbers. Maybe I should not have put the Welcome dinner RSVP on the same card. In any case, here's the RSVP...I thought I was pretty clear...maybe not:
We look forward to celebrating with you. Please RSVP By May 15, 2010
____ Will join the festivities
Name(s) of guests attending________________________________________
____Toasting from Afar-We Regretfully Decline
_____ Will attend
Name(s) of Guests Attending__________________________________
______Will not attend

All you can do now is hope that EVERY person responds with their names and then you can figure it out by process of elimination.
Good luck with everything. Great tip by the way.

Danielle, I hope you figure out who the guests were.

I think that your RSVP card was very clear but people probably didn;t read the whole thing and just checked a selection off.

Has anyone seen or personally printed out labels of the recipient's addresses to put on the RSVP? I am also thinking about doing this but not sure if it is a "no no" or whatever in terms of wedding etiquette...
