RSVP means, Respondez S'il Vous Plait, a short form of the French phrase that means 'please respond'. For invitations like birthday, baby shower, and wedding, an RSVP is sent. A major part of social etiquette, an RSVP has to be short and precise; and we are here to help you put the exact content in the cards.

Nowadays, while sending out baby shower invitations, many people have started requesting an RSVP as well. It's just good sense because the responses will help you plan out your event more smoothly.
Instead of spending the extra time, money, and effort on those guests who won't be showing up for the event, it is best to spend them on the guests that will.
We look forward to the

As a receiver of the card, whether or not you are going to attend someone's wedding, baby shower, birthday, anniversary party, it's common sense to let them know about your plans.
For those who are sending the invitations along with an RSVP, remember―give your guests ample time to respond. Many times, not everyone has made their future plans beforehand. And hence, giving them at least a week or even two can make a huge difference.
These wording samples are supposed to help both the sender of the card and the receiver as well.
