Proper Wedding RSVP
by: Wendy (Modern Manners and Etiquette)
Thank you for your question.
It is good that you are wanting to rsvp to the wedding invitation you have received. This shows very good etiquette. It is important that guests rsvp so that the bride and groom have a count of who will be celebrating their special day with them.
I am assuming that there was not a rsvp card included with the invitation. If not, it is more than acceptable for you to use a piece of your personal stationary to send the rsvp.
An example of wording would be:
Ms. Peters & Guest, Sims & Meg look forward to celebrating your wedding day with you.
Ms. Peters & Guest, Sims & Meg will be in attendance for your wedding on (date).
If you will be unable to attend, the wording could go as follows:
Ms. Peters & Guest, Sims & Meg regretfully will not be able to attend the wedding.
If you would like to include the name of your guest, rather than just saying 'guest' that is acceptable.
If it is a handwritten note, be sure that it is easy to read. You may type you the note and sign it, if you would prefer.
