    @bootsy:  We also did e-rsvps. We included a small card with direction to visit our website to do so, along with getting more info. We received only one “double” RSVP from FI’s uncle who prefers things a little more ‘proper.’ I must say – it was so nice getting a little handwritten note card from them in the mail. Everyone else (about 54 parties) RSVPd on-time and with no hassle though so I would say you might not even need a 2nd option.

    If you’re already using an internet option I would choose phone as the second option.  That way people who are either older or don’t wish to use the internet (not that there are many of them left!) can call instead. 

    We’re doing email and a phone number.

    I think a phone number would be good. We did online RSVPs too but printed about 10 traditional RSVP cards for older relatives to mail back since they dont use the Internet.

    Definitely phone since it is a different technology and therefore a truly alternative option.  Not mail, unless you are providing postage.  Those that wish to send a note still could using your return address on the envelope.

    This wouldn’t be just for older people either.  Several younger guests may text you (if is a cell phone) with their RSVP.

    We’re doing the same thing.  Your wedding is a few months before mine, I hope you keep us all updated on how it goes 🙂
