English[edit]

Noun[edit]

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]

  • Use of this phrase may be considered presumptuous – because it assumes the person will attend – and imprudent, because it assumes the invitation will be received and read.
  • It is less commonly used and understood than RSVP, so there is potential for confusion.
