What does RSVP stand for?

Written by on June 16, 2022

We have all at one time received an invitation to an event or party which has said to RSVP.

Now the question is do we all know the meaning of the term RSVP.  In honest truth I didn’t really know the meaning till I googled it today.

Well if you’re like me and you didn’t know well let me tell you what it means.

RSVP is actually a French expression meaning répondez s’il vous plait. That translates to “please respond.” If you ever get an invitation in the mail that includes a request for you to RSVP, it means that the host of the event is asking for you to let them know whether or not you will be able to attend.

Typical RSVPs come with a stamped and addressed envelope as well as a card for you to record your response on. But more and more RSVPs are being sent through the web and allow you to respond with one click. RSVP cards vary depending on the event and card itself as some include checkboxes or require a message!

Something new learnt for the day.
