Words are known to express one’s sentiments and since the inception of language, words hold
Inviting people to attend a party, ceremony or social gathering has always been a common culture all across the globe. There won’t be any society in this world which doesn’t follow this norm and that is why invitations play a major role in our lives. These days with changing trends many things have changed but Wordings or text on the invitation card still stir emotions in those who read them. Here the words have a special role as they express the love along with exhibiting warmth of hospitality that the host wishes to display.
RSVP (REPONDEZ S’IL VOUS PLAI^T), French phrase by origin which presses on the urgency or need of responding in positive or negative to an invite, belongs to an age old tradition of the West which has been adopted by other societies because of two reasons, one being it makes sense and two, which is more authentic is that in today’s world, people are too busy and many times leave the host in confusion as they forget to inform of their inability to attend the event. Here RSVP Card acts as a saviour for the host who has to do a little extra homework but at least can be sure of the exact or almost exact head count of his guests. If he is planning a destination wedding, it definitely relieves him of the stress of not being sure as to how many guests would be there. The format that is generally followed by the host is to send the invite along with a self-addressed envelope, duly stamped with some responses written or printed for the guests to choose from. Here, the host has to send the RSVP CARDS much earlier
It depends on the taste and personality of the host as to what kind of responses he wishes to get printed. These days, good card designers have ample choice for the clients to choose from. Apart from being practically convenient, these wordings do create a fun element for the guests as many of these textual responses are funny and humorous; for the positive response some funny examples:
I WILL BE THERE IN A WINK AS CAN’T MISS FREE DRINKS
YOUR DANCE FLOOR WILL FEEL LONELY WITHOUT ME…. SO HAVE TO BE THERE
I WILL BE THERE TO CHEER UP THE BONNIE BRIDE
THE NEGATIVE FUNNY RESPONSES COULD BE:
WILL HAVE TO BLESS AND CHEER YOU ALL FROM MY ROOM
WILL BE THERE IN SPIRIT
