RSVP card is a great way to keep track of the headcount for your event.
Your guests can use it to formally reply to your invitation.
Although the content of the RSVP card is quite simple and straight forward, we hope this blog post still serves as a guide and gives you more ideas!
You send the RSVP card with the other enclosures in your invitation suite. The guests will send it back to you and let you know if they can attend your wedding using the addressed and stamped envelope you provided.
If you have decided to have guests RSVP online, please remember to include your wedding website with RSVP details on the Main Invite or your preferred contact information.
- Where guests can put their names and titles
- Where guests can indicate their attendance
- Number of guests attending
- RSVP due date
- RSVP address
- Personal message box
- Meal choices
- Dietary requirements
- Website if any
- Song suggestions
RSVP deadline is usually 4-6 weeks before your wedding because you need to allow time for the final headcount and creation of the seating chart.
Traditionally, these should be sent back to whoever hosting or paying for the wedding.
However, it makes sense for the bride to receive these if you are the one who is in charge of the final headcount and seating chart.
Number the RSVP cards in case guests forget to put their names on them.
