Including response/RSVP cards with your wedding invitations is highly recommended since having an accurate guest count for your reception can save you from paying for extra guests that won’t be attending.
Your RSVP wedding wording will include a line for guests to write their names, an area to mark whether they will or will not be attending and a selected date by which your guests will be asked to reply. That date is typically 2-3 weeks before your wedding date.
Here is just one RSVP Wedding Wording sample:
The favour of a reply is requested
__ will attend
__ not able to attend
Today, guests may also be asked to select their choice of entree as printed on the response/RSVP cards if they indicate they will be attending your reception as in this verse…
Please reply on or before DATE
__ persons will attend
