I was recently invited to a baptism and the invitation was adorable and clever. Turning over the sweet photo of the little babe on one side, the side with the party details said
“RSVP regrets to (name and phone number) by (date).

Awesome! Since I’m going I don’t need to remember to call anyone by any date. How convenient for guests. Definitely will be using this wording on my next event invitation.  However…I don’t know the success rate of this. Do the people who aren’t going actually call? I have enough experience with my own wedding invitations to know that most people won’t respond at all if they don’t plan on showing up. Ugh.

Does this new RSVP way work?
