Critique my RSVP wording

This to me has been the hardest part, is it overkill to have the # of reserved seats listed as well as # of seats reserved accepting? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    I think it's just fine. That way you get a better head count. Not everyone will bring their kids, so it helps you out versus assuming.

    They look great to me. I think it is fine to have both. You might invite a household of 5, but only 4 want to come. It will be good to know that.

    Where did you find those?

    ETA: words

    You don't need to say __ of __ accepting. That is overkill IMO since you've already stated the number of seats reserved above. It's redundant to make them repeat what you have indicated above.

    Just state:

    ___ accepts

    ___ declines

    I did # of # on my rsvp too. There are plenty of folks on my FH'S side that would take the liberty of adding plus 1's (random friends not SO). To make it clear and avoid the awkward conversation, that wording seemed 100% necessary

    I agree with Emily. Make it simple. We also had a place to check what the guests wanted for dinner.

    I like the wording on these! I was just thinking about this the other night, worrying how to do this. (I even screenshot this for reference later) lol

    What letter are you supposed to put at the start of the top line? Is it the first letter of the grooms last name? Yours is an "M" for reference.

    Take out the "we have reserved ___ seats in your honor." There is no point in having both, and the "___ of ___ happily accepts" line is way more useful because it gives you an exact count of who is attending.

    The M is the beginning of Mr or Mrs or Ms... not a last name.....

    I think like Karie said, the M is a really traditional way of beginning the naming convention for Mr/Mrs/Ms etc. has anyone done this line differently?

    Its usually either:

    "___ out of ___ happily accepts

    ___ decline"

    OR

    "We have reserved ___ seats in your honor"

    ___ number accept ___ number decline

    I always recommend using "Name(s)____________________" instead of the M line, or you will receive lots of blank cards with just check marks.
