If you’ve ever received an invitation to a wedding, you’ve likely seen the RSVP card with a space that looks like this:
As wedding planners, we’ve seen that space filled out in some pretty interesting (and creative!) ways. Here’s the deal on what the M on the RSVP card means: it’s for you to include your title when you fill out your name. For example:
Ms. Juanita Jorge
Miss Juanita Jorge
Mr. and Mrs. Steven Oh
Mr. Steven Oh
Mrs. Steven Oh (or Mrs. Juanita Oh depending on your style)
Sometimes you’ll receive an RSVP card without the M. This is just a more modern way of sending them and allows for other titles that don’t begin with the letter M, such as Dr. or military designations.
