The correct wedding etiquette can at times feel overwhelming and confusing, especially when it comes to wedding invitations and even more so if you are the bride!

We are often asked a lot of questions about wedding invitations Do’s and Don’t and most often are regarding a RSVP. So to make your planning process a little bit easier our president Aimee Dominick  put together a list of a few things to keep in mind.

  • If you are deciding on having a pre-selected course for dinner, make sure that your guests initial their choice of Beef, Fish, or Vegetarian. This way you will know exactly who in the couple is having which meal.

 

  •   We never ask guests to list allergies, as we don’t want to encourage guests to tell you was they dislike and would prefer to substitute. If there is a guest who has a severe allergy they will let you know on the RSVP card. {See real invite below}

  • We really do love the old fashioned RSVP with a reply date, the notes that guests write to the couple are always to sweet. Do make sure that you number the back on each RSVP card in pencil just in case they don’t fill them out correctly!

 

  • Alway pre-stamp your reply card, this will ensure that it will get back to you and makes it so much easier for your guests to fill it out and return it.

  • Don’t be afraid to reach out to guests who have not responded by the deadline on your RSVP card. Don’t worry your planner can help you with this!
  • Get excited! Getting your RSVP’s back for your wedding is such a fun and exciting time as you get to see who of your nearest and dearest will be coming to celebrate with you and it also means that your wedding is not far away!
