  • RSVP is an abbreviation for the French phrase "Respondez S'il Vous Plait." In English, RSVP stands for "Reply Please!". When its on a card it means when you want them to reply by to say they are coming.

  • It is the French abbreviation for Repondez s'il vous plait

    Translated in English it means "Please Respond," in other words, please give us a reply with your intentions as to whether you are coming or not.

  • It means... Répondez s'il vous plaît. In english, please respond and let us know if your coming. Put your phone number there for people to call.

  • If it's a blank space with RSVP you would write your phone number and a date that you want the people you are inviting to respond by to tell you if they are coming or not. Or just your phone number if you don't care about a specific date.
