    Do you have addresses for each of them? Also, you say there are 150 in the summer and 200 in the winter, if you send individual invites, will you invite all 200 or only the 150?

    I like the idea of the bullitin board so your really reach your goal of not missing anyone but also see it as super inpersonal to sign a sheet. Could you have an RSVP box next to the board so people can just fill in their RSVP and then drop it in?

    Are you having a cake and punch type reception for church family? Or a full fledged meal?

    If you’re just doing cake and punch, which I’ve heard of a lot of people doing for church communities, maybe you could just skip the RSVPs and assume you’ll get x number of people (75? 100?). I’ve seen some services that are like that and they serve it right after the service at the church and just make sure there’s plenty, because leftover cake is always okay, maybe with a dinner reception (and smaller guest list) later in the evening.

    If you’re doing a meal, it’s probably easiest to do full fledged invites/rsvps – maybe an “RSVP only if you’ll attend”?

    Or if I’ve inspired you with the cake and punch idea, yay! 🙂

    I don’t know if this is still relevant, given how old the thread is, but I just happened across it now. 

    Is there a way to leave less expensive/time consuming invitations that people could pick up at church and take with them? For example, maybe design something on the computer than could be copied. Include all of the wedding information on it and information directing them to RSVP at a website or by phone. 

    I don’t know if it would work for you, but it might save on time (and postage), but still give people an invitation and way to respond without a sign-up sheet.
