RSVP Card Etiquette

Since a wedding is considered a formal event, it is custom to include a reply card with your invitation. There are a few simple rules with RSVP cards. The reply date should be about 2-4 weeks prior to your event. But check with your caterers and venues for the recommended time. You also want to have enough time to organize a seating chart.

As to wording of your reply card, there is no "correct way".

There are more formal ways of wording, such as "The favor of a reply is requested by..." or a more casual way of wording, such as "We look forward to celebrating with you!". You can also include a RSVP note at the bottom of your invitation instead of including a RSVP card at all.

If your guests still have not responded, it's okay to give them a call and ask for their RSVP's via mail.
