We just mailed out wedding invitations for one of our clients and while we were preparing them, the importance of the RSVP came up. We live in a very busy time. People are constantly connected via social media, texting, phone, etc. and sometimes it seems that people are almost too busy to respond when they receive an invitation to a wedding or event.
We wanted to say that whenever you receive an invitation, you should always, always, always respond back to the host. Ideally, you should respond back within a day or two of receiving the invitation. The host of the wedding or event is relying on the responses they receive to order tables, chairs, linens, flowers, favors, and food for the event. This is one of the reasons why it is so important for the host to receive your response…so much is riding on whether you say yes or no.
Whether it is a formal mailed invitation or an invitation your receive through Evite.com, PLEASE make sure that you respond. Your host will thank you!
