The Art of a Reply Card
When creating your reply cards, be sure to ask for the number attending,
names of the guests, and their food selections (if necessary).
Some couples are requesting guests to list additional things like food allergies
and ages of the underage guests, but these details are not
traditionally included so there is no obligation to include such questions.
Be sure to have your invitations in the mail six to eight weeks prior to
your wedding date and set the reply date at two weeks before the big day.
This will give you plenty of time to wrangle the stragglers and
to get your official numbers to your caterer on time.
A favorite useful tip is to number your guest list and reply cards.
Write each guest's number lightly in pencil on the back of their corresponding reply card.
This way, if a reply card comes back without a name you will know who it belongs to.
