What Does RSVP Mean? – The Full Answer
RSVP is an abbreviation that stands for Répondez S’il Vous Plaît, which is French for Please Reply.
RSVP is used as a request for a response to an invitation you have given to someone. It would typically be used on a business invitation or on a range of invitations to social events, such as a wedding, a party, a baby shower or a birthday.
