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

    @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!

    @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”

    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.
