You could do a "Regrets Only" type of RSVP, where they only call or email (or go to your website, I think email would be easier to keep track of) if they’re not coming. Otherwise, you assume they are. And since it’s all family, you can be a little less formal this way. I would write something like this, keep it simple or you’ll confuse people:

"Regrets only by May 15th: Please call Jane at (123) 456-7890 or email at [email protected]."

Or some websites have an RSVP feature built in, so you can add something like, "or let us know on our website at http://www.JaneandJack.com!"

I don’t know about your guests, but less than half of mine are computer savvy.  I would definitely recommend having a phone or snail mail option even if you do go with email.

Our RSVP card  reads:

Kindly respond on or before

June 28, 2008

http://www.ourwebsite.com

PIN:________________ (I am printing in the pin by hand)

(999)555-1212

 

This way the tech savvy just go to the website and rsvp — and those who are confused or don’t have a computer can call.  If they call I have a master list for all of the pin numbers (in case anyone loses theirs) and I simply do the oniline rsvp for them when they call.

Our website not only keeps track of rsvp’s, but also dinner choices, and it helps me do the seating chart as well.

I agree with caliocteach’s wording.  If you just have your website and phone number for people to RSVP to, and don’t include a pre-stamped envelope or anything to return, they will figure out that they need to call you or go to the website.

I think it’s perfectly fine to do it this way, and not have the traditional mail-back response card, especially given your destination circumstances and if you’re only mailing invititations to small group of family.

Now if you’re sending out a lot of invitations, but only expecting family to attend, I’d rethink having 100 people call you with their RSVPs!

i think calling or online is fine… we did postcard rsvps with the option of online rsvp. so far we have a few who sent back the postcard, a few who rsvp’d online, and one who have called my mom (hmm, that wasnt an option!). we didnt even have a pin # for the website and it is SUPER clear & easy, & even a 20-something (aka super websavvy) is giving us his meal info over the phone, so you definitely should have a phone option.

We did an online RSVP and our card said:

Please visit our website for directions, information

             on accomodations and to RSVP

              or contact _____ at 123-456-7890

                 http://www.________________.com

 People did either RSVP online or call us…and if we didn’t hear from them, we called them and it worked out great…and we didn’t waste any extra postage!
