I think *generally* people insert a card. That being said, I think it could depend on the formality of the invitation. Ours were more artsy fartsy than formal, so we included the website on ours.

The funny thing is, everyone ignored it. I got a lot of phone calls asking if we had a website or where we were registered, lol! ๐Ÿ˜›

I think it depends. We are inviting people reception, but some are only recieving invites to the ceremony only… so thats why Im including website information on a little card. Just so that those friends dont think that there rsvping to the reception.

Just a technicality tho.

our invites were very informal, and we put rsvp at “ourweddingwebsite.com” or “our phone number at the bottom.

I think it’s totally fine – just make sure people won’t miss it! Though, no matter what you do, I’m sure some people will!

I would do it on a separate card.  Maybe you can find a cute paperclip or something to attach it with?  Or you could use string to tie the whole package together? DIY heart-shaped paper clips?

Because our wedding was in Massachusetts, and then we had a heavy hors d’oeuvres reception back home in DC a few days later, we had two sets of invitations.  The invitations to the ceremony had an RSVP card that directed people to the Web site to RSVP.  The invitations to the reception were much simpler (no need for information on the ceremony, accommodations, or meal choices), so we just included the RSVP/Web site information on the invitations.

I like artbee’s idea. You definitely need to put a phone number too.

If you don’t include rsvp information, then you risk many people not knowing how to contact you to let them know if they are attending or not. Also, not everyone has access to computers or feels comfortable using the internet even in this day and age, such as any older guests you may have. You should include some type of paper rsvp. Websites for weddings are just new enough that they haven’t hit the etiquette books yet and so it’s a judgement call. Some people may find them handy while others may be offended that you are including it in the invites. Really though, the website info should be included in the save the dates if anything as those are already informal, regardless of the formality of the invites themselves.
