If you want to get the RSVP back, you do!

Yes… it’s just one of those necessary pesky expenses!

Yes.  If you want to try to save money, use a postcard for your RSVP.  Another option…..IF your friends are computer savy, have them RSVP onto a website rather than through the snail mail.

It is the right thing to do.

To save on postage, we had guests RSVP by email and phone.  Worked just as well if we would have had them snail mail it back to us and saved us a few dollars.

Yes! If you want them returned by mail. As PP stated you can have people RSVP by phone or email if you want to save money.

Nope.

Im not. Ppl can take 2 seconds to put a stamp on the bloody envelope. I refuse to figure out the postage for the different countries they’re going to.

I’d suggest doing so. The last thing you want to do is give your guests another reason to delay responding…

If there is a stamp on it, it increases the likelihood that people will actually mail them back to you.  We decided to go with online RSVP so we didnt have this problem

We’re going to give the option to RSVP by website or postcard, so I will probably put stamps on the ones that get sent to the older generation, and not bother for those I know are internet-savvy and more likely to want to reply online anyway.  I’ve only attended one wedding where they had an online RSVP option, and I loved it!

@Gemstone:  Agreed because of this point. I rarely have stamps around the house, so if an RSVP comes without one then I have to go buy one, which I will probably be either slow to do or forget altogether. My turnaround time is much better when postage is paid :o)

yep.  You’d be surprised how many people don’t have stamps at home.  And since this is something YOU need to have returned, you should pay the postage.
