Response Card Tip
Updated: Dec 12, 2019
If you are including a response card, give your guest a "Secret Number"!
A little trick that brides and hosts find very helpful…Some guests may forget to write their names on the response card. In order to keep track of who responds and who does not, make a list of your guests with a number assigned to each name. Mark the corresponding number in pencil in the corner (small number) on the back (or in an inconspicuous area) of each response card. Should you receive a response card back without the person’s name on it you will know quickly who has replied by simply turning the card over and comparing the number on the back to the name on your list. This will save you from a splitting headache trying to read everyone's fancy and/or illegible handwriting too.
Extra tip: If you want to be discrete, you can use an invisible or ultraviolet ink that will glow bright blue under a blacklight. This way the recipient is certain not to see any evidence of your organization process.
WHAT IS THE RESPOND DEADLINE:
We recommend deadlines of 4-6 weeks prior to event date. It was traditionally a two week deadline, however, our generation and the younger are not so in tune with etiquette. This will allow enough time for the host to follow-up with guests, if necessary, and provide accurate headcounts to the caterer, floral designer and rental companies.
