Ask Christina: RSVP cards
One of the things I learned the hard way while planning my wedding was how to read RSVP cards! We received some cards where the guest did not write in their name. (Oh no! Who’s coming with 3 people and eating 3 beef dishes?!). We also had many relatives with the same last name. (Mr. Kim… that could be my dad, or my uncle, or my cousin’s cousin. DOH!).
The best way to prevent these problems is to number your RSVP cards. Number your final guest list, and write in that number onto the back corner of your RSVP. It doesn’t need to be in black light ink or anything crazy. Just a small number in the corner will suffice. So when you get an RSVP card with no name, you can refer to the number on your guest list. Voila! Crisis averted.
