We are DIY-ing our invites, and I already have them designed. The invites themselves are going to be 5″ squares. As for the RSVP portion of our invites, we are going to do business cards with our wedding website (for online RSVP) and phone number. We are planning on tying these on with a ribbon. I have designed a cool monogram for the part of the card facing outward, and were planning on putting the rsvp on the back. My main question is, do you think that people will actually look at the back of the card, or should be include two just in case – one with the monogram, one with the info OR am I just overthinking it?

Below the monogram on the front could you put like “RSVP” in very small letters at the bottom so they know that is the RSVP card.

totally overthinking it. they will check the back. particularly if the front is just a monogram. i mean, why would you pop in a card with just a monogram? i would be thinking that i had better turn it over. and people pretty much expect some sort of response card these days so i would assume that they would be looking for instructions on how to rsvp.

I think that if you want people to RSVP you need to make it as simple as possible. I like the idea of putting RSVP small under the monogram on the front to que people to look on the back for more information.

If the card is loose, I think it’s fine to use a front and back design. However, it sounds like you are tying the business card on the invite. In that case I’m not sure if people would look at the back. Depends on how it is done?

Im confused of the point of the monogramed card. Its just a card.. with a monogram?

I agree with the posters above. Just be sure to put the correct postage on them! You’ll have to pay extra for a square invitation, and possibly even a surcharge if the ribbon adds a bump that makes it difficult to put them through the postage machines (i.e., it’s “non-machinable”). You might want to mock one up and then take it to the post office for weighing and to confirm any upcharges.

Actually, I would be careful about putting stuff on the back. We put our wedding website on the back of our Save the Date postcards and nobody saw it. We even put them in the envelope with the back facing out so people would see the website and we had so many people say they didn’t even realize it said anything on the back. Since it wasn’t something they needed, it was OK, but since they need to know RSVP info, it might be better to make it more obvious.
