Wedding RSVP - Invitation Enclosure Wording

You may be focused on the wording for your wedding invitations, but the RSVP wording is very important as well.

  • It should match the theme of your invites in order to present a cohesive feel. If your invitations are on the formal side, your RSVP wording should match; if your invites are more fun and casual, feel free to word your RSVPs similarly.
  • Include a "reply by" date that is at least six weeks before your wedding date, so that you're able to get an idea of how many guests you will have at your ceremony and/or reception.

Here are some specific examples..
