How To Word Your Letterpress RSVP Cards
This is the one toughest pieces for brides and grooms-to-be when it comes to wording. I’m constantly hearing questions asking how to request information from guests. I’ll even admit, the first time I looked at an RSVP card, I didn’t understand what the heck it was talking about!
Be sure to give guests a deadline!

Guest Names and Seating
I think one of the main things to keep in mind is whether or not you are ready to accommodate an entire family during your celebration. If you have a limited guest list, be sure to make the invitee aware that you have reserved a certain number of seats in their honor.
We have reserved ___ seat(s) in your name
And what are the “M”s and blank lines all about?
___ will attend
___ unable to attend
The first blank line is to indicate the name. Your guest will fill it out as M“r. John Smith” or M“r. and Mrs. John Smith.” They’ll check the appropriate line to tell you whether they are able to make it or not.
