Have you ever received one of these blank response cards in a wedding invitation, and wondered, What am I supposed to write on this RSVP card? I found the answer for you in the sweetest children's book published in 1962.
I''ve talked about Ex Libris before, a company from Oregon that takes old books and repurposes them as journals, leaving some of the original pages in with the blank journal pages.... but I was going through my old work journals (which is always interesting, finding to do lists, past challenges, etc) and never noticed that one of the journals I wrote in was a charming children's book instructing young scribes the art of formal letter writing. How could I have never noticed this? (Probably working) The book, published in 1962, Dear Dragon, is so sweet, and helpful.
Of course, it's pretty tongue and cheek now... A great 2015 response could be: We are so excited to attend your wedding this summer! Can't wait to celebrate, Marisa and Peter. or Thank you for thinking of us. Unfortunately, we are unable to attend your wedding in September, and wish you so much happiness. Congratulations, Marisa and Peter. What do you think - do you prefer writing a personal note, or checking a box saying you will attend?
