I would just open the invites, add new rsvp cards, and send them in new envelopes

I would leave a forwarding address with the owners of your old house (so new purchasers if you’re selling, or the real estate agent if you were renting). I would also try to get in touch with as many of the guests as possible to let them know that your address is changing.

Maybe also try updating things on facebook – “Hi everyone, we’ll be moving to a new house on X date, so PM us if you need our new address for anything!”

I am afraid you will probably need to open the invites and add new envelopes for your RSVP cards.  It is hard enough to get people to reply with a pre addressed and stamped card, I don’t think people will pay enough attention to change the address even if you send them a message or post it on facebook.

I would definitely insert a new envelope with the updated address.

I would think you probably need to re-do the envelopes, unfortunately. Not everyone is on facebook or would see a blast posting.

If you’re planning on moving after you mail the invitations but before the RSVPs are due, I would try to find a fixed address that they (as well as any other wedding correspondence or gifts/packages) could be sent to – either a family member or friend or a nearby P.O. Box. You don’t want to readdress them and have your first respondents mail them to a new address that you are not at yet (causing the Post Office to return them to sender) and not getting your RSVPs at all!
