RSVP Wording

RSVP wording is the same for a wedding as it is for a formal party invitation.

Not all brides will choose to have RSVPs, but they will find it a lot easier to co-ordinate numbers and get their seating plan underway if they do. If you decide not, provide an email address or telephone number for guests to RSVP to.

Options that will make life easier for you when sending out wedding RSVPs

  • Provide a self-addressed envelope
  • Stipulate a date when they need to RSVP by
  • Ask for special dietary requirements
  • Writer a number on the reverse of each RSVP and keep a list of who it was sent to ( just in case your guest doesn't write their name on it!)

Here are some examples of how you can word your wedding RSVPs;
