Répondez S'il Vous Plait
by Candice Benson

Intro | What It Means | Variations

Sometimes you will see “Regrets Only” along with the R.S.V.P. This means that the host/hostess will be planning on you to attend unless you contact them otherwise.

Canceling your reservation
Proper etiquette demands that you never back out of a previous commitment, but we all have those times when something comes up (emergency room trip, funeral, or that you’re just plain sick). Take five minutes and give him/her a ringy-ding and let them know that you won’t be able to attend. This will help them plan for having a fewer people and allow for adjustments.

A final note
Please, please, PLEASE! If you receive an invite and R.S.V.P. information, respond! It is the one thing you can do to help keep your host happy in the last few days or weeks before the event.
