You ready for it?

Put a little number on the back of your RSVP cards that corresponds to your own numbered guest list. Why? You’d be surprised at how many people return their RSVP cards without writing their names on them! It makes the seemingly innocuous task of managing RSVPs become one of the more stressful parts of wedding planning.

With this number system, if a guest fails to write their name(s) on their RSVP card, and all you know is 2 people are coming and they both want the chicken, you’ll still be able to figure out whose RSVP it is without having to hunt anyone down.

Sanity. Saved.
