RSVP is an abbreviation of the French phrase "respondez s'il vous plait", or in English "Respond if you please" or simply - Please respond. Many people use the phrase "Please RSVP", but that's actually a redundancy saying Please respond if you please. It's better to just say "RSVP by --"
Wedding RSVP cards or wedding RSVP post cards or wedding RSVP response cards plays an important role in wedding planning since you know how many people will be attending the ceremony! The wedding RSVP cards are usually small, not more than three inches on a side and usually include a space for the potential guest to respond.
Enclosing a separate printed wedding response card with the invitation for wedding RSVP means that the guest should respond whether or not they plan to attend, by the date indicated on the wedding RSVP card. Often this is mistaken for another expression - "Regrets only", which means only respond if you are not coming. RSVP means that the host needs an accurate account for the wedding.
