RSVP Cards Etiquette

In wedding party organization, what is really important is to know the actual head counts before party. As this will help you a lot in various ways, like you can give your caterer the exact number of people who are going to attend the party, you can make proper sitting arrangement for the guest and many more. So it is always advisable to have a proper head counts in hand and for this making a phone call and asking them about the number of people who are going to attend the party is seems to be really offensive and insulting one. That’s the reason why RSVP cards come into existence. This way of inquiry about the number of guest, is still improper but is far better way of doing it.

 Wedding RSVP card

There are various format of presenting the RSVP cards. Bu traditional way of doing the RSVP cards, the most common one is sending the RSVP card with envelope and the envelope must be pre-address and must have the postage stamp on it.

Post card RSVP cards

If this way of sending RSVP card is not as per your budget allows you, then you can opt for the post card style RSVP cards. This will reduce your extra cost of the envelopes. Don’t ever under estimate yourself with this issue as I have seen lots more response card in postcard format than in reply card + envelope for the wedding invitations. This way of sending RSVP cards is really an eco-friendly one. Post card style response card is slightly in-formal as comparison to the reply card + envelopes but this one is totally fine with even formal black tie event.  Still if you want to do something with your RSVP card to change its look, you can keep it custom with the matching postage stamp. This will really make a visual impact on your card thus create a big difference.

If we have to talk about the modern way of sending RSVP, then the best one is sending it online through mail and allowing your guest to reply online on your wedding website. This will help you to provide your guest with additional information about your wedding. This is the most effective way of sending response card to the guest in term of cost and will definitely an eco-friendly one. As you neither required a RSVP card nor the envelope. With the online information, it really becomes convenient for you to gather the information about the head count for the wedding event.

There are some basic things which I must think that you should do while planning the RSVP cards. Firstly always try to send your wedding invitation at least 3-4 weeks prior the wedding so that it gives your guest enough time to reply. And along with this, always keep a space for stragglers. Secondly before mentioning any date in the RSVP cards, do consult with your caterer, to see when he require the actual head counts and thus accordingly set your response date. Finally if you don’t receive Reply cards from some of your guest, make them a call and ask them to reply back on phone or through mail, so that you will have exact head counts.

This is all about the RSVP cards from my side, please suggest more etiquette on this if left unturned from my side.
