The name listing of his parents is tricky.  If they're divorced by the time the wedding comes OR pretty much everyone knows about the divorce, leave it as is.  If it's quiet, change it to Mr. and Mrs. Carl Lastname.

To get a headcount, you don't need a response card. The wording above will get one for you. However, if you feel like you need to use a response card, delete the response request (last line) above and use...

--the "daughter of" breaks the "no names between the couple's" rule.  If you want to list parents who aren't hosting, it's done as a courtesy listing at the bottom of the invitation
--you can use titles if you want, your choice
--the layout above is correct, if it won't all fit properly with the poem, then poem goes, the lines don't get squished together to fit the poem

To find your response and mailing dates, you can use the textual representation at http://tinyurl.com/2dqqxy and a calendar or you can email me for the RMO spreadsheet that does the calculations for you.  two guys in love at gmail dot com

If you need to use enclosures for Accommodations, Directions or Childcare, you can find templates under the STD section. http://tinyurl.com/29k6al The format used for the STD works just fine for the invitation too.

I have my invitations figured out but I have a question about my response cards.

First- is it polite to supply postage for the response cards? I have recieved cards that were done both ways.

Second- we are having a buffet style, so no meal choice. the reason I'm doing a response card is because I am inviting groups of people on each invitation. Ex: The XYZ Family. I don't think all members of every family will becoming. Some have children as well. Also, I'm allowing all of my single friends to bring a date. So I'd like to make a response card that is something like this:

M_______________

____  Attending

              _____ Number Attending

               _____ Number of Children

____ Not Attending

Is that okay? Also, I talk to my singluar friends on a regular basis. Can I just tell them in person that they can bring a date, or do I need to include it in ther invitation?

Thanks!
