@MrsSweetT:  do you have extra mailing envelopes so that you can open those ones and put the stamp on the rsvp and then make a new mailing envelope?  what about steaming those ones open, put on the stamp and then resealing them?  you can always afix a seal or something to make sure it seals properly again.

Where is the self-proclaimed etiquette snob when you need her?

You could call them and let them know… then maybe do a phone RSVP for those people if they would like. If I got an RSVP card without a stamp I certainly wouldn’t be mad or anything though. Phone call can’t hurt though!

@MrsSweetT:  Honestly, some people don’t even realize that the envelopes are pre-stamped until they go to mail them. Most people have some stamps lying around. You are inviting them to your wedding – they can shell out 44 cents to send back their RSVP. 


Is it ideal? No. But making a big deal out of it and apologizing is a disproportionate response. I’d let it go! 🙂

I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Send a facebook message if you want. But I don’t think anyone will be offended. If anything I think they might put them in the mailbox without realizing they need a stamp, so you might not get it. So a facebook message could help prevent that. But either way, it’s not the end of the world!

@MrsSweetT:  Meh, I’d let it go. It shouldn’t be too big of a deal.
