This is a good question, I hadn’t even thought about it!  Interested to see what others are doing…

If you had the stamp used by the other country it would be nice to use it on the RSVP envelopes but otherwise you’ll have to leave it blank – U.S. postage, for example, won’t work if your guests are trying to send the RSVP from another country.  They’ll just have to buy their own stamps from the country where they’re based.  Or maybe give them the option to RSVP online?

we have guests coming from denmark, sweden, italy, china, and england. for the danish and swedish rsvp’s i am sending stamps from the respective country (since we can easily get them) to my mom to use for the return envelopes. for the other countries i am just relying on them to add a stamp or someone in the family (me, my mother, FMIL) will contact them.

They will know to send it back, even without a stamp to indicate it. 🙂 In fact, you should not put a stamp because I’m pretty sure for another country to deliver postage, you have to pay their postal service! You also don’t know how much it might cost their to deliver.

I actually have an online RSVP (in addition to RSVP cards), so I included information about responding online in my international invitations.

We didn’t include a stamp on our international ones, instead we had a different RSVP card that just said, you can send an email to us at xyz with your reply if you would like and all of them replied by email in a timely matter.  We were worried if they would make it back by the RSVP deadline, if we didn’t give them the other option.

I tried to order stamps from canada but they had a problem with the card and when they didn’t come i had a minor freak out! I think since your international guests have to book hotels and flights they will be more likely to rsvp, even without a stamp.

i didn’t include a stamp on my international invites – leaving those more to a word of mouth rsvp.

We didn’t include a U.S. stamp for our guest in Lesotho because of course it wouldn’t work. I have given her the option to mail or email me with rsvp

internation guests never usualy respond via rsvp card, its usually phonecall or email. because alas they will be making travel arrangements.

I wouldnt worry about it 🙂
