Explain Please

I received an invitation the other day for a retirement luncheon.  Down at the bottom is the RSVP and phone number but it reads differently than any other RSVP I've ever seen.    It reads  "RSVP if regrets"....so does that mean you only call if you can't attend this luncheon?  Usually if there's an RSVP, I call one way or the other.

Can someone out there please help me with this ?     Thanks.......Linda

I'm pretty sure that means you only call if you can't come.  Joni

Yep that is done often, they will assume everyone is coming unless you called to tell them no.  Have fun!

If you intend to attend, I'd give them a call. They usually want to know for numbers. Somebody trying to be too clever, methinks.

Yep, I've also seen this .. if they send out twenty invitations and only two cannot attend, best they don't receive eighteen calls for nuttin', right?  I think it's kind of smart actually.  Hope you go, and have a fun time!!   Judy

Hmmm...  I've seen regrets only and rsvp... but never worded in that manner.  I'd say if you can't go rsvp......   I think.  LOL sorry not much help eh?
hugs

I would take it as call only if you can't attend - strange way of wording it though.  I too have seen the "regrets only" before.
