How do you politely ask guests to RSVP?
Make the RSVP Date Prominent
Make the reply date prominent on the response card. For a formal invitation, use “The favor of a reply is requested by May 6.” For an informal invitation, you can say, “Please reply by May 6” or “Kindly respond by May 6.”
Is it rude to ask people to RSVP?
While it’s rude not to RSVP and people can be flaky or noncommittal at times (some, sadly, all the time), don’t hold it against them personally or stew about it. Just ask.
How do you say RSVP request?
An RSVP card kindly asks your invitees to “répondez, s’il vous plaît,” which is where the four letters from R.S.V.P. come from. “Répondez, s’il vous plaît,” means “please reply” in French. This English adapted abbreviation stands for the signal for a requested response from guests.
How do you ask for RSVP via email?
Be clear in your request.
So make your wording super clear: A blank line for the guest’s name, followed by “Will attend” or “Will not attend” to be checked off. Skip using “RSVP” and say instead, “Please reply by [date].”
