I'm a big fan of using fun and creative RSVP wording--especially for showcasing the spirit of a wedding. While RSVPs serve a very practical and much-needed purpose--getting an accurate guest count--why not incorporate a bit of fun into them as well?

One of my favorite wording ideas comes from the Ritzy Bee blog. It's an oldie but a goodie ... and it's cute cute cute! The wording is clever, positive and the best part--the objective is clear--to find out who is attending and who is not!

___Will be there with bells on
___Will be there free of bells
___Will be there … undecided on bells

Number of people attending: _____

___Will not be there
Heard there will be people wearing bells

___Will not be there
Regardless of the bell controversy

So fun!

Here's another idea that plays off the original above:
Spring, Summer, Outdoor, or Destination wedding--

___Will be there with SPF on
___Will be there free of SPF
___Will be there … undecided on skin protection

Number of people attending: _____

___Will not be there
Heard there will be people donning SPF

___Will not be there
Regardless of the SPF controversy

A few more ideas to get your creative juices flowing ...

I LOVE this idea! Wanted to do it for my wedding, but was afraid older guests might get confused.

Thanks Kristin! I know what you mean- that is one of the reason's I love the "bells" example so much- the "yes" or "no" is clear.
