  • It doesn't need to be the 17th just because the wedding is the 17th so I wouldn't worry about that.
  • You do need to know who is coming and who isn't, so I think you should leave it the way it is
  • Two days for the response date won't make a difference. I did a March 10 reply date for my April 10 wedding, but I just arbitrarily picked that date.

    My only concern would be that someone would write, John and Jane Smith under the name, and then write 1 coming and 1 not coming. So how would you know who's the one coming? (Although I imagine that most smart people would indicate who's coming and who's not, so this is something that probably can't be helped no matter what you write, because there will always be some people who just don't think.)

  • I agree with pp, you don't need it to be the 17th.  Ours is March 16 for an April 16 wedding, but I just figured an exact month would be perfect for me.

    Ours is:

    The favour of a reply is requested
    before the sixteenth of March two-thousand and ten

    Our wedding is April 10th but we need to have a final count into our venue a full month out. So we wanted the extra time to make follow-up phone calls if we don't hear from some people so we pushed our RSVP date up to the 1st.
  • I definitely think the date depends on when your venue needs the final count like the bride above stated. I am making my date a month before my wedding knowing full well that I have some last minute larrys in my circle of family and friends and if I make it later then they'll be coming all the way until my wedding date, lol. I think your reply cards are beautiful. I was going to do a simpler reply card but the woman at the invitation store has been around the business for a long time and suggested that I do mine just as yours are worded. Good luck!!
