You've Never Seen a RSVP Like This One - It's So Honest

by rima@hitched

Weddings can be many things.

Sometimes they are a joyful day watching your two friends get hitched, and sometimes they are a task that you really wish you didn’t have to attend because there are much better things you could be doing… Like washing your hair?

Despite how you see a wedding, the method of RSVP is very simple and usually totally and untruthfully polite because you couldn’t possibly start breaking the all-important wedding guest rules.  

I was so sure this would always be the way, until this frightfully honest RSVP card was posted on Reddit by one of its recipients.

So here it is…

I Regretfully Accept Because:

I only like one of you
I have to rearrange my entire schedule
I am part of a decades' long feud against members of your family

I Accept with Great Excitement Because:

I am glad you are getting married
I want to meet 'that special someone'
I am family

I am Bringing a Date Because:

They are my spouse/significant other
I love triangles!
I'm going to propose at your reception

I am Coming Without a Date Because:

My spouse/significant other is unavailable
I desire to meet someone at your reception
I don't want to bring a date

I am Bringing Children ______:

Who require their own seat
Who have been flower girls or ring bearers
Who are imaginary

I Found this Method of Determining Guest Numbers:

Mildly confusing
Completely unexpected
Similar to the Spanish inquisition
Oddly humorous
Strangely effective


I gasped, I laughed, and I also slightly envied the couple for their modern day and comical approach to such a long-standing tradition.

It’s definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved it.

How did it make you feel? Are you inspired to create such a document, or will you stick to tradition? – And guests let me know if you’d enjoy receiving this!

I’m off now, have to take my imaginary children to a wedding…
