I’m keeping mine in a box at least until after the wedding in case any issues come up!

I hoard EVERYTHING, so if I had paper RSVPs, I’d totally keep them.  You can put them into an album later, if you want, or just tuck them into a box and keep them with other wedding stuff 🙂

I kept mine. I have a box with the RSVPs, cards that came with wedding gifts, etc. At some point I’ll probably go through it and toss some out, but not yet. Of course, I kept track of the replies on a spreadsheet but I wanted to keep the paper too, just to have the notes.

I don’t know if I would have kept ALL of them if I’d had a big wedding. In my case I’m talking about 40 reply cards.

I’ll probably keep them. They’re too pretty not to!

I kept ours.  I was logging them into a spreadsheet, like you, but I just couldn’t part with the RSVP cards.  People wrote some really sweet things on them, so I liked looking at them.  Right now, they’re in what I’ve marked as “The Wedding Box” in our storage closet–with centerpiece leftovers, linens, and other miscellaneous stuff leftover from the wedding.  I’m not sure what I’ll do with them…

I’ve been hanging on to mine, but I hadn’t given any thought to what we should do with them after the wedding!  Hmmm…

could you make a scrapbook or a box with them, and the cards you get for your wedding? it’d be cute!

Nope. I recycled mine after the wedding. Nobody really wrote anything sweet or nice on mine, and I had no sentimental ties to them.

But I guess you could scrapbook them or put in an album if you do keep them.

We did postcard RSVPs and had a section on the back for guests to write notes. We’re keeping all ours until the wedding is over, and then after the wedding, keeping the ones where people wrote nice notes, and putting them in a scrapbook.

I’m definitely keeping mine and putting them into an album. 🙂

Mine went to my mom’s house. I’ve no idea where they are or what happened to them! Frankly I don’t miss them too much. I don’t think many people wrote on them, just checked coming or not. I have a bunch of extra blank ones for keepsakes.

I say, if they have special notes or memories on them, keep them. Otherwise, a sample of them might be better to keep if you keep them at all. Even a scrapbook doesn’t need 80 cards with checkmarks and nothing else on them!

I hadn’t even thought of that! But since I’m saving all my other wedding stuff, or at least samples of the invite and program, I imagine I’ll keep the RSVPS and work into a scrapbook of some kind…maybe just an envelope of all of them in case I ever have the desire to look through them.
