Invitations as the best way to let your guests know about your upcoming nuptials. One of the most important components to your invites will be your RSVP card.
The card will allow you to know who is attending and who is not, their meal preference and in the case of a destination wedding their travel details. It’s important to give your guests a clear date by when they need to RSVP. We suggest no later than 2 months prior to the big day. This will give you enough time to reach out to unanswered RSVP’s and create your sitting charts. Make sure to track your RSVP’s carefully as last minute cancellations due occur. Your final count will determine many things from food and beverage bill to number of tables and chair you will need therefore affecting your decor bill as well.
Trick of the trade: Make sure to number the back of your RSVP cards, this way if a guest forgets to write their name you can always reference back to your guest list and figure out who it is.
