Here is my basic format for the RSVP. Is it okay? Anyone have experience in which the M is confusing to guests? Since I will have the number of seats pre-filled instead of the "2 of 2 happily accepts" format I guess the goal is to have people fill out their names so I want it to be as straightforward as possible. Should I put Name instead?


RSVP Kindly respond by the twentieth of September

We have reserved __ seats in your honor
M _________________________
____ happily accepts____ regretfully declines
List a song or two you'll dance to:________________________________

    Yeah I don't know why it confuses people. I think until they get married they don't understand what it means! Haha

    We put "name" because we had SO many young single men that would be confused by "M" haha!

    The only question is how someone will respond if you send to a couple, and only one can come.

    That's what the name line is for. They shouldn't write all the names if they all can't come. Or like if mom and dad is coming and their kids aren't.

    This is our RSVP Card. I just mailed out invites today but those who I have already hand delivered their invite to were just fine understanding what the M meant. Whichever way you chose I think will be great!

    I think the M is confusing and I don't personally like being addressed as "Mrs. XXX" so I always cross it our and write our first and last names.

    I just put a line with: Name(s)_______________ instead of the M.

    I'm not sure if this applies to your guest list, but if they are doctors or pastors in your group it shouldn't start with M either. Our firm has alot of Dr. & Pastor clients and it is extremely important to address all or their mail correctly. Just putting name could solve this for everyone.

    We put "name(s)" instead of the M. Even with the change, some our guests still returned the RSVP without their name on it smh.
