What is the standard wording for response cards? I am making DIY invitations and response cards and am not sure how to word them. Our wedding is a casual, backyard wedding.
Please reply by the 5th of July
Name (s); _____ (FH and my MOH didn't think people knew what M______ meant, so we had to do Name)
_ Accept with pleasure
_ Decline with regret
Search rsvps online and you can get some fun options. There are a ton of ways to do it.
R.S.V.P. by the x of Ymonth M ____________________ _ accepts _ declines _ meal choice 1 _ meal choice 2 Just change the “meal choice #” to your available choices. If you need to know exactly who gets which meal, you'll need to include one card for each person invited and you write in the name. Please give good meal descriptions, not just "chicken" or "beef". Sauces and stuffings are especially important to list.If there are no meal choices and no A/B list, you don't need a response card. However, if you choose to use one anyway, delete the meal choice lines above and the card is correct.For A/B list, two printings with two dates using the above format is preferable, but that’s not always financially possible. If not, use this wording… R.S.V.P. by the ---x of Ymonth--- M ____________________ _ accepts _ declines _ meal choice 1 _ meal choice 2 The ---x of Ymonth--- part is for a line where you’ll handwrite the response date. You can have the stationer print the “of” or handwrite it yourself. Your choice.Oh and none of this "with pleasure/regrets" business. It's incredibly presumptuous to think you know how someone feels about answering your invitation. Just ask the question... accepts or declines.This link covers the stuff above and a few other things... Cards: http://tinyurl.com/yupuqkChad ~ 11.19.05
