wedding rsvp wording checklist
1. A respond-by date
A date 4 weeks from your wedding is the perfect amount of time. However, for destination weddings, or if you’re inviting a lot of out of town guests, add on a few weeks to give your guests enough time to make travel plans.
2. A blank line for guest’s names
Your guest will use this space to write in their name as well as the name(s) of their partner or children they’re bringing along. In addition, these names will be combined to create your final guest list and place cards for your reception.
3. The “will attend” and “will not attend” lines
This wording can as formal or fun as you want it, just as long as it’s there.
4. Choice of entrées
If you’re offering plated meals at your reception, be sure to include a short and simple description and a space for guests to check or initial their selection.

HOW TO WORD YOUR RSVP RETURN ENVELOPE
Alas, you got your wedding RSVP card wording down pat. But, what about the envelope? When creating the RSVP envelope, follow these tips to properly address your wedding RSVP cards:
1. Pre-address and stamp the envelopes
These are essentials for proper etiquette of RSVP cards. Thankfully, these will save you and your guests time in the long run.
2. Pick the right return address
Your return address on the RSVP card could be different than your main invite return address. However, that is ok. Whether it is the couple who is receiving the RSVP cards or a designated family member, pick the address of the person who is responsible for keeping track of the final guest list.
3. Don’t forget the stamp!
A pre-stamped RSVP card envelope is proper etiquette. In addition, it makes your guest and your lives easier.
