Fun RSVP Wording

In my last post I showed you our at home reception invitations I have started working on. They are coming along great (wait until you see them!) but I am stuck on the RSVP wording. The traditional styles of wordings are just not the fun atmosphere we want this party to be. I have seen a few really fun styles that I L-O-V-E!

One of the first ones I fell for was Mrs. Nacho’s:


Mrs. Nacho’s

When I read her post I LOLed. I love the personalized nature of the choices. “Better than a Saturday night at Denny’s”—awesome.

Of course there is also the ever popular Mad Libs wording:



I like this but how many of our guests have never even heard of Mad Libs? I know that some of my aunts and uncles would be a bit confused. That search though let me to find the Be There With Bells On wording:


I really do love this but once again I am worried about confusing guests.

Or I could ditch all those ideas and go with a traditional yes/no style but add some fun wording (ala Mrs. Sand Dollar).


Mrs. Sand Dollar’s

GAHHH! There are just so many options I am not sure what to go with. I want them to be unique without confusing everyone or being seen as overly silly.

If you were a guests which style would you like to see?

    I’m with everyone else who loves the “with bells on” idea. It’s fabulous and funny and I think a lot of people will get it. If they don’t, they can always ask, right?

    For my response card for our destination wedding, we did, “Yes! Our bags are packed!” and “Sorry, we burn too easily.” We received a lot of compliments on them, because most people just use the standard response card wording.

    These are all great! I love how fun they are rather than the typical straight forward yes/no rsvps one generally sees.

    I love the bells one! Reminds me a lot of Monty Python ^_^ I think I might need to borrow this idea…
    Though if I go full Monty Python on it I might confuse people about Llamas lol ;p

    @Miss Cinnamon Bun: please let me know if you happen to get any replys, the only one ive seen is regular wording of some sort, but then it says __all in or ___i fold. just a little line for someone to check. i loved it, but i wanted something else to put on my rsvp. its been so hard planning a poker themed wedding for us :-(

    This is absolutely fantastic.

    We have just literally sent out most of our invitations using Google Docs online… then I saw the bells thing for the wording we are using for our immediate family and the people we know who are not tech-savvy.

    That is hilarious. I have updated the online forms to include
    - will be there with bells on
    - unable to attend, bell phobia

    Thanks so much! It;s hilarious! I am so not fond of tradition!

    Lots of fun ideas. I was looking for a clever RSVP to what I hope will not offend Mother’s invited to a baby shower I am hosting. I really think having children running around take away from the new Mom2B’s Day. You’ll see what I “borrowed”…

    This is a time for Adults to dine & play,
    Children will be invited to
    Baby Jack’s 1st Birthday!

    We have reserved 1 seat for you!
    Kindly call with Regrets Only.

    ___Will Be There with Party Pants on
    ___Will Be There with no Pants on
    ___ Neither we or our pants will be attending
