@audrey_lane:  We’re just biting the bullet and stamping them regardless of whether we think they’ll RSVP online or return it to us.

We didn’t have the online option, but we stamped them all- we only received about 2/3 back. H and I made a lot of phone calls.

If you’re asking traditional etiquette then stamp them. If you worry about perfection then stamp them. But I didn’t and it was fine. 

I was in the same position. We invited about 100 and I set up a wedding email they could RSVP by or send in the card. I knew pretty much everyone would email or just tell me so I didn’t include postage. I figured anyone who preferred to mail it would have a stamp already. I don’t regret it–we got probably 5 card RSVPs mailed back, a few cards given back by hand, lots of emails and made a good number of phone calls. If you have a big “traditional/older” guest list I would stamp them but if not I wouldn’t worry about it. I didn’t have a single person say anything.

Maybe just stamp the ones for older guests but skip the stamp for people like your friends who will likely reply online?

BluebonnetBride:  Hi! I’m thinking of not putting a stamp on ours either – since we are offering website, email, tele options…

We did online rsvps which most people used, and for the older group we added a phone number for them to rsvp with. It worked quite well, and there were no wasted stamps.
