Are you wondering how to incorporate a creative wording into your wedding rsvp cards without losing elegance and style?
Or has it happened to you that you totally love those Pinterest creative stationery shots, with a fun or modern wording but you are not quite sure whether everyone will like it? You're not alone. This is a common enquiry or concern and that's why I am writing this article.
Well, let me tell you what I think. No matter what you do, we have already stated in many of our blogs that we can not please everyone or pander to everyone's taste. And taste is not a science, it is actually quite subjective. A funny or serious wording on the RSVP card will not define the style of the entire wedding, within reason, of course.
Once your wedding style is discussed, defined and agreed on (I would say mainly with your partner, but perhaps not exclusively), you can decide how formal or fun you want it to be. Just be consistent with most of the elements of the wedding and the level of formality you want and you will be just fine.
Now, before I show you wording ideas that are creative, let's remember some points that some of those stunning inspiration shots may not leave clear.

Now the fun part!
Depending on the level of formality of your wedding you can use some humour or even hints to encourage their guests to put that RSVP card in the mail.
You can find more traditional wording, with "accepts/ declines" in our wording ideas page.

Specific wording options for destination weddings.

And these below are some of our couples' questions in regards to RSVPs:
1) Can I order an Invitation and not have an RSVP card? You certainly can. If you have enough space on your invitation you can add a line with RSVP by date along with a contact details (phone or email). The RSVP cards are very useful, specially with large weddings but not everyone may need or want them. In some cases the RSVP and a paired envelopes is a feature to embellish the set beyond its need.
2) Can the RSVP be also online? Absolutely. It is a great idea to have a wedding web site where the guests have the options to reply. This is regardless if RSVP cards have been sent or not. Some couple prefer one reply method only, others are happy with more than one. The choice is yours.
3) what's the standard wording for RSVP:
As suggested above, the standard requirements are
-if they are coming to your wedding or not
-dietary requirements, to help you cater for allergies or special diets
SOME couples may need to collect on that card info about:
-child minding choices
4) what's the difference between a postcard and an RSVP with an envelope 5) how can I make a set if I do not have an RSVP card.
The one with envelope: it is more expensive but looks super pretty with contrasting colour envelopes. In some countries, it is also a safer option to post.
The postcard style is cheaper, comes with NO RSVP envelope. The return address is printed on the same side, towards the right. In Australia this option is very popular for the budget minded couples and Aussie Post usually handles these normally.
