All About RSVPs -- what does RSVP mean?

The term "RSVP" is an acronym for the French phrase, repondez s'il vous plait, meaning "respond if you please." Another polite way to phrase this on an invitation is "response requested."

Responding is an important courtesy. Event hosts count on receiving RSVPs so that they know how many guests to anticipate, which helps them to make seating and catering arrangements. It's also an opportunity for guests to share important information with the hosts ahead of time, such as dietary restrictions or food allergies.
