RSVP cards are an important piece of the wedding planning puzzle for seating charts, planning catering, and more.
RSVPs are usually seen as traditional and formal, but they can be a great help for any bride in figuring out the logistics of a wedding. Your wedding venue might need RSVP info to plan out seating arrangements, place settings, etc. Check with the venue as early as possible to find out when they need a final head count of guests. For destination weddings, you may need RSVPs to be returned to you even earlier to get travel and accomodations arranged.
If you are short on time and need your invitations and RSVP cards or other inserts sent out as soon as possible, you need help from Utah Announcements. The normal turnaround time for our invitations is 4 business days, but it can also be expedited to meet deadlines at an extra charge.
You can choose to pre-stamp and put your mailing address on the RSVP envelope to ensure your guests return them to you as quickly as possible.
What do you put on RSVP cards? Looking over the Utah Announcements gallery of examples from past clients can help. Some of the basics include:
- Checkboxes to select whether they will be attending or not
- Number of guests attending
- Selection from meal options (steak, chicken, fish, vegan, etc.)
- A “Reply By” date
- A line for the guest’s name(s)
- Whether any children will be attending
- Reception attendance vs. ceremony attendance
Destination or travel-required weddings will have another level of complexity to help your guests make the process as simple as possible. Travel accommodations, hotels, meals, and everything else that goes a destination will require forethought and more communication with your guests.
