we are hand-making invitations and I need some advice before we finalize things!
Is it okay to just say RSVP by : such and such date ?
We are not going to include a card since we are making them all ourselves and this would up the postage quite a bit.
We are only inviting people who know us and I think it’s a no-brainer on how to contact either of us about it. Everyone invited has our phone/email, etc
Also, I am NOT including registry information in the invitation. (I hate getting those invites) But I think I may have my mom/friends include that on the cards to my shower. Does this make sense?

Even if everyone knows how to contact you, the information should be readily available on the invitation. Can you add a phone number or something?

I think you should add how you’d prefer to be notified – meaning – either put and email or phone number (even though they have it). You really want it to be as ‘no-brainer’ as possible – unless you don’t mind hunting down a lot of RSVP’s.

I think you should at least include a phone number or email address on the invitation.

Never underestimate the stupidity of people. =)
But seriously, I would still put your number.

We didn’t send the “send back” blah blah.. We put on there that they could RSVP on our wedding website (here’s the link) or by calling us: (here’s our phone number) or by e-mailing us (here’s the special e-mail).. so far it’s worked pretty good, but I’m still hunting RSVP’s and people are still LAZY!

I would probably still list your info, just in case, or if you have a preferred way to contact you, etc. Some people put their wedding website on there because there’s all the extra stuff like directions, hotel blocks, etc. on there. : )

I agree with the others – still put your phone number and email address on the actual invitation. Also be prepared to make phone calls/send emails to follow up with any that don’t RSVP.
As far as the registry information, you are correct. Do not include it with the the wedding invitation, but it would be fine for the host of your wedding shower to send it out in those invitations.
