Wedding invites rsvp cards are the most useful cards to have in a wedding invitation kit. Unfortunately, it's also the most forgotten cards to look at. Most guests would not attend to these rsvp cards because they feel that they are already included in the final guest-list. Most of the time, it's because they are close to the bride or groom or they are family members that are expected to go. Having these cards means that brides and wedding organizers can create a final guests list and a seating plan so that they can save money by confirming how many people are going and so that they can plan where people are going to sit during the reception so that they can have fun with their friends while meeting new people.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Another reason why people do not reply to wedding invites rsvp cards is that they do not understand what the cards are for. Not a lot of people actually know what rsvp sands for, so most of the time they just neglect the card and go straight to the main wedding invitation. the best remedy for this is to make the wedding invites rsvp card sound personal. Instead of just the initials rsvp, you can place a personal message on the card. Try something like “please contact (name of contact person) at (contact number) to confirm that you will be joining us in celebrating this memorable and important day”.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Sometimes, using a uniform theme for all the wedding invitation cards is not a good idea. This would mean that all the cards in the invitation kit look the same, and a lot of your guests might just miss the wedding invites rsvp card. Try to change the style of the rsvp card. You can use a different design with the same color motif or change the color and keep the design. You can also make it smaller or bigger than the rest of the cards so that it will stand out. Place it in the front of the invitation kit so that it is the first thing that your guests will see when they read your wedding invite.

If your wedding is just a few days away, and some guests still have not replied to the wedding invites rsvp cards, do be hesitant to call them or contact them to confirm their attendance personally. You have already done all you can with your wedding invites rsvp cards. Never feel bad about calling your guests up for an answer.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
