Wedding Invitation Wording Etiquette: Part Two

If you’ve decided on the perfect wedding invitation wording that fits your personality, theme, and keeps both sets of parents happy, it’s time to focus on your response cards. While your wedding invitation sets the stage for your wedding day, your (returned) RSVP’s play a vital role for tallying an accurate guest count, as well as providing menu selections or dietary restrictions and in some cases, special requests, such as songs titles to add on to your reception playlist. Not sure where to start or what to include? Today, we’re giving you response card wording inspirations that will coordinate with every type of theme.

Whether your wedding style is traditional, formal, or casual, this is your opportunity to let your personalities shine. Be creative in your wording, especially if you’re a laid back, lighthearted, or even humorous couple. Just don’t forget to include a pre-addressed AND stamped envelope for guests to easily reply “yes” or “no” to your wedding. After all, receiving your RSVP’s is part of the wedding invitation fun! Don’t forget ‘RSVP to me‘ can suggest MANY wording options during your wedding invitation design process.
