I hand wrote in the names, for a more personal touch. We also set ours up differently in that we really wanted to go idiot proof [which most RSVP cards are not, there's no real good way to make it so that you can accept for some but not all, etc.]



So, I wrote in the number in the party [some folks were invited as singles, etc. and also to keep people from writing in their own number of guests.] Then I hand wrote their names in--like I said, for the personal touch. First names only, though. Informal is the name of our game. Plus, it was a good way for me to get orange into the mix since we did two color prints only [I could have gone full color but didn't want to take advantage, plus I like two color work in general.]

Then we stamped them, tucked them in the envelopes and called it good. I like the idea of numbering in general, but really loved being able to make them super specific to the invitee. Plus, I was already keeping track of online RSVP password codes so I didn't want to have to keep track of anything else.

i planned on doing postcard rsvps - diybride.com has some word templates for 'em on their downloads page, which are helpful.  TheBon, i really like yours... I'll probably use those as my inspiration Cheesy

ETA - TheBon, what's on the opposite side of yours?

The other side just has our logo. You can see them in the first link that I posted. It was on the front of the postcard, the front of the invitation and the top of the insert we put in with all the extra information.

I did postcards, too, and they were so easy and perfect!  If I did it again, I would number, or name them. I got back one that was really odd, they didn't fill out any fields except:

_________!
(exclamation)

__________ is/are ____UNABLE____ to attend
(your names(s)     (able/unable)

There are
_____people in our family.
(total number)

I did RSVP postcards too, and didnt run into any problems except for ol' Grandma - who was paranoid that the postcard would get lost in the mail.  She insisted on putting the card (complete with postage) inside another envelope (with postage) and mailed that to us.  Wasnt that big of a deal, I guess it was just a Grandmotherly quirk.

mine were similar to TheBon's, except that I didn't write names, I numbered each card so as it received I had a fun job of looking up who it belonged to.  The postcards actually all went to my parents' and my mom would email me the card number... then I would email her back and say who it was.
The numbers were listed on a spreadsheet that was alphabetized.  I used it to track addresses, then I added a column for meal choice and wether or not I sent a thank you afterwards.



I filled in the number of seats for each invite.
