Wedding Etiquette Chronicles #2: What Does R.S.V.P Mean Anyway?

October 18, 2008

What Does RSVP Mean Anyway?:

RSVP is an abreviated French sentence meaning “Repondez s’il vouz plait” or Respond, Please”.

Some couples don’t require a response to an invitation to the wedding.  Some do.  Be on your best wedding guest behavior and RSVP, even if it’s not required.

Let the couple know if you intend to come.

If the couple is on a budget and you do not RSVP, you may not have a place waiting for you at the reception.

Uh-oh.  No weddding cake for you!

RSVP Rules:

  • RSVP for the proper amount of people to attend with you.  One person, if you are attending the wedding alone and two people if you and another are attending.
  • Don’t bring another person if have already RSVP’d for one person.
  • Don’t bring more guests than the invitation allows.  Don’t RSVP for 4 when only 2 are invited.
