19 Wedding Hacks Every Bride Needs to Know
Name (or Number) Your RSVP Cards
Wedding guests notoriously don’t know how to fill out RSVP cards. They write “yes” when asked to choose between chicken or fish, they check both boxes for attending and not attending, and they almost always forget to put their name on the card before mailing the RSVP back.
A trick to knowing who sent a nameless RSVP is to mark your cards (before you send them out) with numbers that correspond to your guest list. This works great but, if you’re thinking ahead enough to number your cards, you might as well fill out your guests’ names on the line provided. It saves you a step so that you don’t have to go back to your list and see who numbers 12 or 45 were, and it’s also a subtle way to let your guests know who exactly you’re expecting. Hopefully it will cut down on the chances of your guest bringing a surprise date or their uninvited kids.
