STAY ORGANIZED | The best way to keep track of your RSVP cards… for your eyes only.

If you’re about to release your RSVP cards into the wild, drop what you’re doing!  Before you make another move, think about this: what are you going to do if you get a few unidentifiable replies?  Well, here’s a quick and easy solution that’ll put your mind at ease.

You’ve undoubtedly put a lot of effort into selecting and/or creating your invitations, and the last thing you want to do is mark them up with numbers or characters that will help you to identify who’s who.  But the fact remains that it’s not unusual for the occasional reply to come back nameless.  Here’s a super fun way to keep things in order as they start to come back to you:

An invisible ink pen!

All you have to do is assign numbers to your guests, and then write these numbers in invisible ink on the backs of each reply card.  Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.

By the way, at an extremely low price of $1.33, I instinctively start to doubt its quality.  That price screams “I’m going to arrive dry, but you’ll be out $1.33 and change, so you won’t complain.”  So I checked the reviews.  They’re practically all positive!  So I’m going to take a risk and recommend this, sight unseen.  (That’s typically VERY hard for me.)

Note: the post on Weddingbee is from 2007, so, understandably, the link is no longer relevant.  I found the pen here, however, and the reviews are very much up to snuff.

    This is such a great idea. I used a pencil and numbered by guests, but this would have been so much better, aesthetically speaking. Wish I knew about this!

    I used an invisible ink pen on my rsvp's! I got mine on Ebay for some ridiculously low price.

    Fabulous idea … one I just might have to steal.

    Great idea! It's a super easy option! A lot of our client print their guest's return address on the RSVP card or post-card, but this a much more cost-effective option! :) We'll be sure to recommend this!

    I was so going to do this, but hadn’t ordered one in time so I had to go with pencil. Just released ours *today*!
