I don’t think having it be double sided is a bad idea.  I would worry that some people wouldn’t turn it over though.

I don’t know about tacky, but I would worry that once people send back the RSVP they won’t have the information about the when, where, etc. of the wedding anymore.  They could write it down, of course, but some people would probably forget to.  If you don’t what a separate card, what about something like this: http://www.sealandsend.net/sampleInvites.php where the RSVP is at the bottom and people can cut it off?

I agree with the others.  I’d be worried about people not wanting to give up the invitation.  If you did online RSVP or something like that, it would be a pretty good idea to use the back since people could still keep their invitations.  Otherwise, I think Prairiegirl’s suggestion to do a cut off might be pretty cool.

Oh, sorry about my confusion! That makes much more sense, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it at all.  We only did two cards too.  Actually, the reception is at the same place for us, so we just wrote on the front of the invitation “Reception to follow”.

I don’t think it’s tacky at all to include the reception info on the back of the invite… Unless your guests are extremely stuffy &/or old school, I think eco-friendly is more and more appreciated these days

I don’t see anything tacky about it.  Sounds like a good solution, so long as your paper/card stock is thick enough that it doesn’t show through onto the other side and make it hard to read.
