Wedding invites rsvp cards are the most important and, unfortunately, the most neglected cards in the wedding invitation kit. The rsvp cards actually act as attendance cards. your guests needs to confirm that they are attending the wedding do that you and the wedding organizer can make a final head count for the guest-list. A final guest-list is important since it helps with the budget and seating arrangement. The rsvp card also help you collect information about your guests such as what they would prefer to have during the reception and if they are bringing along other people such as their dates or their kids.

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.

Helping you sticking to the budget is probably one of the biggest benefits wedding invites rsvp cards have. If the person does not rsvp, that means you can take them out of the original guest-list. This is better especially if the reception's meals are served by head and is not a buffet style. This way, you don't order too much food for your guest and pay a lot of excess. The wedding invites rsvp cards also help in making the sitting arrangement. This is also important since it's a way for you to keep your guests entertained. A seating arrangement is also helpful in getting your guest to mingle and get to know each other.

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).

On your wedding invites rsvp cards, you can place information about the receptions menu and ask the guests to inform the contact person which of the meals they would like. This is helpful since serving the same meal to all your guest might mean that they might not eat or enjoy the meal because they would have preferred something else. You can also indicate on the wedding invites rsvp cards if they will bring someone, like a date, along. You can ask them to indicate how many people they will bring to the wedding so you can just add them to the final guest-list.

The best way to get your guests to answer or reply to the wedding invites rsvp cards is to make it stand out from the other cards in the invitation kit. Make it look different and unique so that your guest will notice it when they open the envelope. if your wedding is already a week from now and a few of your guests still has not replied to the wedding invites rsvp card, then feel free to contact them and confirm their attendance yourself.

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.
