    • This term comes from a french expression meaning that you need to inform the person inviting you,whether you will be able to accept it or not. It is a request for a response from the invited person. So,if you get some invitation along with ‘ RSVP’ expression,please convey your approval to the host asap. The host also needs to send ‘Save the date’ mail earlier to sending a RSVP invitation.

      Thanks to Ramesh Bansal for asking us the question. Here is the reply to his query:

      When you receive an invitation with a RSVP note attached it is always advisable to reply to the invitation. Even if you plan not to attend the ceremony, kindly send a regret note.

      There is a more recent variation of the RSVP note which is “RSVP, Regrets only”. In case you will be unable to attend then only you need to apply. If you do not reply then it is taken as a yes by the host.

      In any case it is considered well manners to reply to any invitations. Now a days, invitations are sent using the electronic media of email and SMS. So it has become easier to reply. Also you can reply to a invitation card by using the SMS service or email.

      Hence it is always advisable to reply.

      If you have any other full form of RSVP then you may add it here using the comment section. Additionally you may any question using the comment section.
