The response card is traditionally accompanied by the main invitation. This is to gather information for your wedding such as who can attend, the guest count, and their entree selection. The response card information is usually paired with an A1 sized envelope and a stamp for the guests to mail back their response. Couple’s have been opting out of this tradition and using the response card to indicate that their guests should response via their wedding website or provide a phone number to call and respond.
There are several ways to phrase the opening of a response card. For example,
– The favor of your reply is requested by the Eighth of July
– Kindly reply by July 8th
– Please RSVP by the Eighth of July
This is the space where the guest indicates their name. Traditionally it starts with an M________
This is where your guest lets you know if they are able to attend your big day. You can choose simple wording, such as
___ Accepts ___ Declines
or you can get fun with it and use
___ Wouldn’t miss it for the world! ___ Will be celebrating from afar
4. ENTREE SELECTION
If you are having a sit down meal, your caterer will most likely want to know ahead of time which entree selection each guest desires. If you are having a buffet, or your caterer does not need to know, you can leave this line off. Typically, the each guest that is replying yes will initial their choice of entree.
5. RESERVED SEATING
To limit the number of guests and avoid any confusion, a line will typically be added with the number attending. Sometimes the couple will fill this out themselves or, if their guest list is a bit lenient, let the guest write in the number attending.
___ Seats Reserved in Your Name
___ Number Attending
6. GET CREATIVE WITH IT!
Couple’s have been adding cute requests at the end of the response cards to get their guests involved in their wedding planning. The most common of them being a song request. That way their guests have no reason not to get up on the dance floor and shake what their momma gave them!
