The response cards that you include in your wedding invitation suite may be an afterthought compared to all the other important wedding planning elements that you have to consider. From your save the dates to flowers to honeymoon – you’ve got a lot on your wedding-planning plate!

But think of it this way: Your response card essentially gives you a good estimate of how much your wedding day is going to cost. The number of guests who RSVP “yes” to your wedding can tell you how many chairs, tables, centerpieces and food you’ll need to plan for. Wording your response cards, including choosing the right rsvp-by date is a detail you don’t want to shrug off as unimportant.

These simple cards hold a lot of power, so giving them with a little personality is a great idea. You can sure stick with traditional RSVP messages like “accepts with pleasure”, or “regretfully declines”. But, if you want to have a little fun with the wording, we have some ideas!
