RSVP as soon as possible

Couples spend so much time designing beautiful wedding invitations that it’s tempting to affix it to a notice board, or your fridge, and admire it for a few days before responding. While a healthy appreciation for beautiful stationary is admirable, you should do your best to get your RSVP in the mail as soon as you possibly can. That way, the hosts will know exactly how many people to plan for and can budget accordingly. Don’t make the couple reach out to remind you — have your RSVP in the mail a maximum of 15 days after getting the invitation.
