When mailing shower invitations, do I have to include an RSVP card/envelope or can guests just call/email to confirm if they will attend or not? Will some people find it rude to not send a pre-addressed/stamped RSVP card?

I wouldn’t bother with rsvp cards.. I would just use phone/email.

I would request an email, call or text RSVP

@MOHlookingForIdeas: Most of the shower invites have had a phone/email RSVP. Just be clear who you will be calling when you dial that number – there’s often multiple host at a bridal shower!

I am happy to see a consensus here (I was hoping to skip the mail-back rsvp cards). Thanks, everyone!

@MOHlookingForIdeas: A card is never required. A response card is actually not following traditional etiquette.
A phone number is fine, even for a wedding.

For a shower I’d include a phone number on the invite followed by, “Regrets only”

@andielovesj: Oh, I didn’t realise that! I thought response cards were expected. Then I’m quite relieved.

This is old, but I received an invitation that just said to respond for any regrets – just like what crackkthesky said. That way, it will decrease the amount of contact.
