    I think it should go on a different card only because I bet most people wouldnt flip it over and would miss it completely.

    Seems your vibe is pretty casual so I say go for it! Why add extra “weight” to your envelope if you don’t need to?

    So yes, I’d look at the back and be like, “Oooh more info!”  🙂

    Also you will save paper if you are a green-friendly couple!

    I’d be worried that people wouldn’t bother to check the other side.

    The thing I’m concerned with is that youre mailing back the informational part, correct?  I save the invitation so that I can see what time and where I need to be, and put it front and center on the fridge.  If I mail it back as my RSVP, I can GUARANTEE I’ll be calling you the day of to try to figure out where I”m going.  And you don’t want that.

    I agree with wannbe-diy-bride.

    BTW, your invites are cute!

    I think you should include “please turn over, for more info” – or something like that but better worded!

    We did a 2-sided RSVP – one with the normal info and one with a fun side.  I thought there was no way people wouldn’t notice the back – but, I’d say 50% saw the other side and 50% didn’t know about it.

    ETA:  I’d normally flip all paper over, as a recipient – but, I’m crazy like that 🙂

    I never flip wedding invites over. The info on the back would be totally lost on me.

    Like PPs I probably wouldn’t notice anything on the back. Well unless maybe if my clumsy self dropped it and it happened to flip over.
