regrets only (plural only)

  1. Written on an invitation to request that the invited person reply only if they will not attend.

Usage notes[edit]

  • May be considered presumptuous – because assumes the person will attend – and imprudent, because assumes the invitation will be received and read.
  • Less commonly used and understood than RSVP, hence potential for confusion.
