A wedding invitation reply card allows the bride and groom to know who is attending the ceremony and reception. Knowing the number of guests aids in the planning of food, beverages and reception space.
Wedding reply cards are mailed back to the bride and groom. These cards often include stamped and addressed return envelopes.
If reply cards are not included with the invitation, the guest should contact the bride and let her know if he is attending. This can be done by phone, mail or email.
In the event a guest needs to cancel his RSVP, it is courteous to contact the couple immediately so that they may make the needed changes for the reception.
