Response Card Wording for Wedding

Response Card Wording for Wedding

Even though the response card, or the RSVP card, may seem small, it definitely needs a bit of spice for the wordings. Read the Buzzle article for ways to make your invitation stand out.
With the help of the response cards, you can arrange the guest seating chart, plan the menu, communicate with the caterer, and organize your budget. Once the menu is designed, you will have to inform the caterer about how many guests are going to be attending the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception dinner. Which is why the need for the cards is so essential. Here are some sample wordings to keep the event flowing as smoothly as possible.

As you can see, there isn't any "right" way of putting the wordings. Only different styles in which you can get the information that you seek from the guests. When the wedding is a formal affair with family, friends, and colleagues, these wordings will surely find a way to fit in.
