    I know extra cost and such, but theres also the excitment of getting mail… thats not bills… lol… and having them on hand physically. Unless I opened a new email address, they’d just get lost in amongst all my email garbage. And then theres all the people that don’t “get” computers and the internet…

    we started a new email address for rsvps / official wedding correspondence so both of us could have access. most actually just told us in passing that they were coming. my FI pestered them to follow it up w/ an email.. he knows i’m a freak about things like that. we also gave a mailing address for those who prefered to send us a note that they were coming (no one took us up on that, the non-web savvy folks just picked up the phone and called)

    I think if you gave an email and/or phone # option, it would work.  You will still need to do follow-up calling, I’m sure!

    We used a paper Save the Date for exactly the reasons you brought up – even though we have a wedding website. We did, however, make postcards to reduce the postage costs and paper waste. If you think there are only a few people on your list who need a paper RSVP, I would just hand-make enough cards for them and let your more tech-savvy guests RSVP online.

    Good luck!

    I think if your guest list is small enough it wouldn’t be an issue keeping up with everyone! A word of caution – make sure that everyone knows you RSVP online only. The trend now seems to be both – an online website and a paper RSVP. When I see the website I never bother with it because I assume I’m going to have to fill out the paper one anyways. Good for you for trying to go green with your wedding!
