We made our own STDs with photo paper and then added them to cardstock.  We put our wedding website (I should’ve mentioned that to you in the other thread) and it had a RSVP section on there.  A few of our guests responded “yes” before they ever got the invite.

@HopefulBride12:  You can always make a wedding website and people can RSVP on there if you want to save money and make it easy. Then you can just put the website link on the STD cards.

I thought you meant the other kind of STD’s. LOL

If you ask them to reply then that’s essentially your invitation. I get that your are trying to save money by not sending invites to people who can’t even come, but that’s one of the expenses/risks you take when you invite a ton of people. I’d suggest maybe getting a feel for who can and cannot come by word of mouth. I’ve never heard of asking for a response for a save the date. It’s just a courtesy “heads up” so people can make arrangements.

STDs are not meant for RSVPing purpose, but to give guests information about the date and location so they can begin preparing and clearing their calenders. RSVPs for for the actual wedding invitation.

I would suggest making a wedding website and using your STD to let guests know that they should RSVP that way. Lots of guests know if they can or can’t attend a wedding long before the invites go out that that’s a good way to allow those early birds to let you know.

We had guests RSVP on our wedding website.  We did send out save-the-dates.  However, I think they’re overrated.  Alot of guests ignored them, said we’ll be there but didn’t really save the date and then later said, “oops can’t come something more important came up.”  Interesting.  I don’t think people really understand what save the dates are for.
