R.S.V.P. stands for a French phrase which means “répondez, s’il vous plaît,” which in English means “please reply.” That means that the person sending the invitation to you would like you to tell him or her whether you accept or decline the invitation so they can plan accordingly (food, party favors, etc). That is, will you be coming to the event or not?
Guess what? This is necessary so the invitee can properly PLAN the event, whether it be a wedding, shower, birthday party, etc this person will be spending multiple hours planning, making food or ordering food with a caterer, ribbons on favors, decorations and more.
In today’s busy world Americans have forgotten about just how important is it to calendar an event and RSVP. Try to teach your kids the importance of this lost art. Responding to an RSVP is the right thing to do!
Just a thought for the day. ☺
