Wedding RSVP Card Etiquette & Wording

The “RSVP” on your wedding RSVP cards stands for “répondez, s’il vous plaît,” which is French for “please reply.” If you’re confused about more than just the name of your wedding response cards, we’ll help guide you through the essentials of RSVP card etiquette.

RSVP Card Wording

As with all aspects of your wedding stationery, the level of formality you choose to use in your RSVP cards is entirely up to you. If you favor a more traditional tone, formal wording will complement your style. If you prefer to be more relaxed and modern, informal wording may be a better choice for you.

Here are a few examples of popular RSVP card wording:

  • “Kindy reply by…”
  • “Please respond by…”
  • “The favor of your reply is requested before…”
  • “RSVP before…”

Here are a few ideas for wording the response options on your cards, listed from formal to informal:

  • “Accepts with pleasure / Declines with regret”
  • “Joyfully accepts / Regretfully declines”
  • “Accepts / Declines”
  • “Accepts / Regrets”
  • “Will attend / Unable to attend”
  • “Will be there / Sadly cannot attend”
  • “Yes / No”
  • “Will see you there / Will be there in spirit”

Choosing an RSVP-By Date

Another important factor to consider when creating your wedding response cards is your deadline for RSVPs. In general, you’ll likely need to ask that responses be returned 2-3 weeks in advance of the big day. Determining factors will include:

  • When your caterer and/or venue needs a final headcount. Most will request a final count 1 week in advance but this number varies.
  • When you mailed your invitations. Most couples send wedding invitations 6-8 weeks before the big day (or earlier for destination weddings). You want to allow your guests ample time—preferably about 4 weeks—to make a decision and send their replies before the deadline.
  • Follow-up time. Some of your guests may not reply to their RSVP cards. Sometimes this is due to forgetting about the deadline, misplacing their invitation or not realizing a response is required unless they can’t come. In any case, you should allow some time after the RSVP-by date (about a week or so) to individually contact non-responders.

With these wording ideas and etiquette tips, it’ll be easy to write and send your wedding invitations and response cards on time. Once that’s taken care of, it’s all about planning the final details and finishing touches on your big day. Congratulations!
