6 RSVP cards for your big day that you need to know about
Words by Utterly Printable
When sending out your customised wedding invitation cards, it is imperative you include directions for how and when your guests should RSVP by. There are a few different ways in which you can do this, through an online RSVP service, via text or email or via the more traditional route: the post.
If you’re a stickler for etiquette and want to keep with tradition then you have probably chosen the snail mail route. Depending on the design of your wedding invitation, you can either choose an RSVP card design with the same theme as your invite or choose something different but equally complementary. No matter which design you choose you can fully customise the content of your response card, making sure it is unique and useful to your wedding. But for now, we’ve put together a collection of our favourite and most popular personalised RSVP card designs for you to take inspiration from. Let’s go!
Slant typography mint green
This gorgeous mint green RSVP card with large cursive typography will match any wedding stationery design suite that uses pastel hues. We think mint green is perfect for a vibrant summer wedding where guests will be in colourful attire and the floral arrangements will stand out. There is plenty of room on this RSVP card to include any further questions or information which you may wish to ask your guests so don’t hesitate to adapt it to your needs.
Thin watercolour wreath
If you have chosen florals for your wedding stationery design suite then this natural green watercolour wreath could be perfect for you. Romantic and elegant it will let guests know that you’re aiming for a rustic country theme and they can expect lots of beautiful blooms. Make sure your RSVP date is early enough that it gives you plenty of time to chase any late repliers as well inform your caterers and venue of your final numbers well before the deadline.
Clean cut and classic, this RSVP card is as traditional as it comes. Plain back Cartography on expensive thick white card will match virtually any traditional invitation you choose. If you’re looking to keep it simple and elegant and let your guests know that this will be a traditionally British affair, then this is the perfect RSVP card for you. If there is extra information that you wish to gather then consider using the reverse of the card, just make sure to include a small PTO at the bottom.
Lines with a thick border
If you have chosen one of our thick bordered wedding invitations, then match them with these thick bordered RSVP cards. They are available in a host of different colours, ready to fit seamlessly into your colour palette and the content can be fully customised. Bright but not garish, this design suite is perfect for the couple planning a traditional wedding but with some modern touches.
Done in the traditional black and white card style but with a bold RSVP, this card means that your guests will definitely not miss your response request. However, we sadly can’t promise that this will mean they will all manage to return them to you by the required date. Black and white have the benefit of easily fitting into any colour scheme so no matter what design you have chosen for the wedding invitation this RSVP card should match. With plenty of space available it is also ideal for those who are wanting to include extra details such as song requests and meal choices as well as the obvious attend or not question.
If you’re looking for something a bit more fun which will get your guests excited for a good party, then this could be the RSVP card for you. With pictures of music notes, champagne and cake nothing says get ready to get down like this design. Don’t forget to ask guests for song requests to pass onto your DJ so that they can ensure that your dance floor is packed all night long.
