How do you include a wedding website on an invitation for RSVP?

We did the same. I thought it was more convenient, fairly “green” and cost effective.  We included a reply card with our invitation that read:

“Please visit our website to reply. There you will find more information regarding hotel accommodations and events. 

(Website)” – make sure you include password if applicable

My only regret is that we left off a deadline for rsvp but it did not end up being a big issue and actually, made it less awkward for me to follow up with those who did not reply at all because I just blamed myself for not indicating a deadline. you will be shocked at how many people don’t think it is necessary to actually RSVP. Many of them already had their travel booked!

pbrt:  At the bottom of the invitation after the address of the venue we added the simple line of “For Details and to RSVP (Insert website address here)” They can find out the RSVP date and everything else they need to know about the wedding on the website. Tried to keep everything simple!

pbrt:  after the details of where/when etc, we put “please RSVP by 24 May and find further information at [name of website], password [x]” so far most people have got the gist!

pbrt:  It goes in the lower left corner of the invitation proper, in slightly smaller print.

Sending an invitation without a response card and envelope is more proper and more formal than sending “R.s.v.p. cards.” Those of us who are sticklers for correct form will take out our own personalized stationery (or a half-sheet of printer paper) and write on it in our loveliest script, that “Miss Aspasia Phipps / accepts with pleasure the kind invitation of / Miss Pbrt / to her wedding on ….&tc” and send it in our own envelope with our own stamp, to the address that they have on record for you in their visiting-book (or onctact-list) or to the return address on the invitation envelope. Since that is the correct tradiional practice, the rule that R.s.v.p. information goes in the invitation’s bottom corner is a long-standing rule, not something that needs to be invented for twenty-first century brides using websites.

The vast majority of your guests, not being sticklers for correct form, will then simply go to the website to reply. But do not be surprised if you get a few handwritten replies in the mail.

We are dealing with the same thing as well. I would like to include it on the actual invitation, but I dont think that there will be room without the invitation looking clutterd. So, Im planning on including a separate card, with the (please respond by December 1 by visiting our website) and providing the password.
