Wording on Reply Cards
Reply (or response) cards are included as inserts with the wedding invitation. These are commonly used today, but not long ago, they did not exist. The formal reply information used to be included at the bottom of the reception card or reception information, if printed on the invitation.
Reply card inserts should be printed in the same style as the invitation. Reply cards are formatted to include the reply request, the due date of the reply request, a line for the guest name(s) to be handwritten by the guests, an acknowledgement area for accepting or declining attendance at the reception.
The basic formal wording for response or reply cards is:
The favour of your reply is requested by date*
*date is usually 2-4 weeks before the wedding
Less formal wordings are used today and are included below. The respond card format has expanded to include additional wordings to provide a date for returning the response such as:
The favour of a reply is requested on or before
The courtesy of a reply is requested on or before
A reply is requested on or before...
Please reply on or before...
The standard accepts/regrets format is worded according to your preference:
__will attend __not able to attend
__ accept with pleasure __ decline with regret
Meal choice selections are included, if needed:
__ Prime Rib __ Salmon
