just wanted to inquire if you have done postcard RSVPs did you have any problems with them getting lost in the mail at all? We love the idea of saving an extra buck on envelopes and postage for the RSVPs but I want to be sure that we aren’t stuck making 50 calls three weeks before the wedding… let me know how it worked for you ladies!!!

A few months ago, I would have said don’t do postcards. But then we spent a lot of time and money on our reply cards and half of our guests required a follow up phone call to RSVP, so now I wish I’d saved the money and just did postcards.
My advice is to find out from your two families how good people are or are not about RSVPing. His family we knew would be bad, and all unmarried people under 30 on our guest list were bad about it. So if you’re going to end up making those 50 phone calls anyway, save a buck! But if both sides are good about RSVPing, then I’d pay for first class letter postage to have a better chance of them arriving.

We did postcard RSVPs and online RSVPs. As long as your postcard is at least 3.5″x5.5″ you will be fine. We have had about six postcards come back and 20 online RSVPs. I chose not to stamp the RSVP cards because a bunch of people would RSVP online and I thought it was a waste of money.
It still looks like I am going to be calling 50% of the guests. 🙁

I made postcards for my friend’s bridal shower, and they worked out just fine! As far as I know, everyone got them.
I ended up making them on publisher, which was neat because I was able to have 4 per sheet, and ended up just copying them. It worked out well and saved a lot of money.
I can’t give input on RSVP-ing unfortunately, as I haven’t gotten that far. 🙁 but I’d say good idea and good luck!

Miss Dolphin used postcards, which looked lovely, and she blogged about getting most of her RSVPs back so they looked to work just fine. 🙂

thanks ladies, I think we are gonna do it-which will make my fiancee very happy and i’ll just have to hide my dismay that I don’t get to excitedly “open” each RSVP when they arrive 🙁
