MODERN + FUN WEDDING RSVP WORDING

Are you finding it hard to decide how to word your wedding invitation RSVP cards? Looking for modern, fun, alternative wording that reflects your personalities?

Well look no further! Here’s our guide to nailing your RSVP wording whilst making sure you get all of the necessary information back from your guests that you need!

 

FIRST THINGS FIRST…

There are a few key things that all RSVP cards MUST include.

1. NAMES OF THE GUESTS
The best option is to leave a line for your guests to handwrite the names of who can make it, just incase not all of the people listed on the invitation are able to make it to your wedding.

2. THEIR RESPONSE
Give your guests two clear options to respond with – essentially whether they are attending or not attending. These work best when they are tick boxes. You could also provide them with a line where they can handwrite the names of who can and who can’t attend.

3. RETURN DATE
There are certain dates that your wedding suppliers will need final guest numbers by, it is a good idea to find out these dates and then choose a date a few weeks before this for the RSVP return date. (This then gives you time time to chase up those who are late with replying!)

OTHER QUESTIONS YOU COULD INCLUDE…

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
If you are providing food you need to be aware of any serious food allergies that guests may have or whether they are Vegetarian or Vegan.

FOOD CHOICES
If your guests can pick their food, the RSVP card would be the best place to ask them which options they would like to pick.

SONG REQUESTS
If you would like some help making your wedding playlist why not ask your guests for some song suggestions that will make sure they get up on that dance floor!

ADDITIONAL CELEBRATIONS
If you are having a weekend wedding, you made need to know if your guests can make it to any additional celebrations such as a BBQ the night before or a breakfast the following day. This means you will need another question followed by two response options for your guests to fill in.

RSVP WORDING – INTRO/TITLE

Your card could simply be titled ‘RSVP’ and be followed by one of these statements…

  • Please let us know if you can make it
  • We would love it if you can celebrate with us
  • We hope you will join us
  • We hope you will share in our joy
  • We are looking forward to celebrating with you

 

Or if you wanted really fun and relaxed wording you could use one of the following…

  • You in?
  • You game?
  • Are you in?
  • Will you be there?
  • Can you make it?

RESPONSE OPTIONS…

  • We’ll be there  / We’ll be there in spirit
  • Can’t wait to celebrate  / Sorry won’t be able to come
  • Looking Forward to it  / Gutted to miss out
  • Can’t wait to celebrate  / Sad to miss all the fun
  • Excited to attend  / Sadly must decline
  • Can’t wait / Can’t make it
  • Let the good times roll  / Roll on without me
  • We’ll be there with bells on  / Us and our bells will be elsewhere
  • Count me/us in  / Count me/us out
  • Wouldn’t miss it for the world / Will celebrate from afar
  • Yes lets get the party started / No and I will forever regret this decision!
  • Hell yeah! / No sorry

EMAIL RSVP…

If you have decided you would like your guests to email you their responses, just make sure your wedding invitation specifies all the questions you would like them to reply with like the following examples.
