I am sure there are about a million posts about this, and I am willing to go through them 🙂 but thought I would take a shot at asking people about their experiences with post card reply cards. I am not set on either idea, but like the idea of a post card goes better with our suite.
So please let me know any negative experiences! thanks!

I used postcards 🙂 They were perfect. It was super simple and I was able to print our address right on them without it being overly painful.
I didn’t really see a reason to have the envelope, it was just an unnessesary extra for me.
Our guests had no issues with them either 🙂
See pictures below!
Back (we had stamps in the right corner).

So just a cautionary tale, my friend got married and did DIY reply cards and it turns out they were too small to mail back. Ended up being a huge fiasco. I think they are awesome personally, just make sure you get the sizing right. 🙂 I am using reply cards with envelopes, but that is because it fits the style of my invite. 🙂

@cc226: I loved using postcards…..the woman who designed our invitations pre-posted them with stamps so all we had to do was add in how many people we were wanting to be there (We have reserved ___ seats in your honor) and put them in our invitations….they were really easy!

Thanks everyone! We are having most of the suite printed at vista print and they have a post card size so the size will work!

I am having our Rsvps printed on post cards but am sending them in envelopes. Post cards don’t fit the formality of our wedding, but I like the size of them and I got them printed for free and got matching envelopes with the addresses pre printed.

I had envelopes. I don’t really know why besides that I thought they were cute and green and I like opening mail.

I am using envelopes…1) because I found metallic envelopes to match my paper 2) because I am printing at home and afraid ink may smear if they are exposed 3) I have to pay for stamps anyway and even though you save on postcard rate, I like the formality of them. 4) It does not increase the fact no one mails them back!! LOL

I used them -saved us a bunch on postage -postcard postage vs. regular postage-it really adds up! A few people tucked them into envelopes -for privacy maybe, but overall people just filled them out & returned them. It seems easier -you avoid the envelope step altogether. And you save $ on that extra envelope too. I don’t think it necessarily goes with a formal feel, but we were trying to strike a balance btwn. casual and formal (leaning toward formal), but really needed to save $ where we could & this was a no-brainer. If your wedding is REALLY formal (black tie or whatnot), the invite is the 1st clue toward setting the tone, so I would avoid the postcard in that case. Otherwise, go for it!

I plan on using post card reply cards. I think they’re cute! I’m having a pretty laid back wedding though.
