If you’re asking: “Is it ok to skip the RSVP cards all together?” The answer is a resounding NO.
That’s because you’re risking wasting hundreds of wedding dollars by skipping this perfectly sized reply card! The RSVP is a crucial part of your wedding invitation suite.
This little piece of paper saves you from:
Spending money on 50 plates of food for guests who didn't come - because you didn’t have a firm headcount and assumed everyone was coming.
Running out of seats at the reception - your guess was too low and 30 of your guests have nowhere to sit and are just hovering over by the cake table.
Paying for unnecessary chairs, table linens, and favors - if there are too many tables and chairs your photos might look really bare and your carefully selected favors could go to waste.
Stress of trying to do a plated dinner without the proper information from guests.
Confusing guests - they might still be wondering where to rsvp and call anyway.
If you're thinking about skipping rsvp's to save a few pennies you're risking wasting hundreds of dollars just to save a few.
If necessary, use an alternative method to collect rsvps rather than forgoing them all together.
