If you’ve received an invitation to a wedding or event, more than likely you also received an RSVP card. It’s very important to fill it out promptly and properly so the host knows if you will attend. Not sure how to fill it out a wedding RSVP card, we asked Kim with paperkuts Studio to walk us through it.
Before filling out the RSVP Card, be sure to check the main wedding invitation envelope to know who is invited. Don’t include the names of uninvited guests. If the invitation envelope does not indicate a plus one, don’t add one. If your children’s names are not written on the invitation envelope or you see the words “adults only,” on the invitation, they are not invited.
Write the titles and full names of all invited guests next to the “M” on the response card. Don’t forget to include the full name of your plus one so the host can get a proper head count and create a personal name card for your guest. Remember to only include those who are listed on the wedding invitation envelope. Make sure to write legibly. The bride and groom rely on your RSVP card to create a master guest list, so make sure they can read your writing
What Does the ‘M’ Stand For?
What is the ‘M’ on the RSVP card for and what does it mean? It should be followed with a long line. It represents the first letter of your title. Mr., Miss, Mrs., etc. The recipient is supposed to add what letter(s) of the title is appropriate and fill in their name. Mr. and Mrs. Jane Doe as an example.
Will you be there with bells on or regret you can’t attend. Whichever it is, mark the appropriate response.
If filling out entrée options, write down the initials of each guest next to the option they want. If you have any major food allergies such as nuts or shellfish, it’s a good idea to include this information here.
Mailing the RSVP Card
Send out the RSVP card ASAP. Mailing your RSVP card on time shows not only respect to the host but also how excited you are about their big day!
Always, always, always include postage.
