I’m hoping to use both online rsvps and postcards — not all of my guests are going to be able to do the online thing. 🙂
My question is: should I include stamps on my paper RSVPs when some people might not even return them? :/
I realize it’s ideal to include the postage for your guests but what if it’s just a total waste?
I thought maybe I could include a stamp but not fully seal it so that they could use it somewhere even if not on the RSVP.
Ideas? Anyone done this?

I think that you almost have to add stamps, it’s unfair to those who don’t want to use the online RSVP to provided their own stamps. It’s just my opinion.
I was thinking about this as well, but found that I would be wasting quite a bit of money on the thrown away stamps. And being that I really didn’t know anyone at the time who had done the online RSVP thing, I didn’t really trust it.
Good luck 🙂

I had the same idea. A lot of stamps gone to waste and I feel why not let them use it on something else AT Least of just not using it at all, Is it improper to just include a stamp but not adhere it to the envelope?
I had the same question!!!

I used both and did not put stamps on the 100 postcards only because I made it very clear on the information card that we would prefer they RSVPed online. I only included postcards for the few people that may not have internet or would rather be more traditional and send a postcard. I am only expecting a small handful of people that might prefer the mail versus online. I feel like I gave them the option and if they really want to send the postcard instead then they can opt to put a stamp on it. But I was not about to waste all that money on stamps that won’t get used, our budget is small enough as it is! All I can say is, I’m not one to dwell over the etiquette of how everyone else does it, I just try to do what I want to do and not worry about it.

We had both options of online and postcard rsvps. We included the stamps out of courtesy to the guests. So far its been 50/50 online/mail rsvps and one who did both!
Maybe you could include the stamp somehow in your invitation package, I also thought this may be an option, but couldn’t think of a clean way of doing it with my design.

I did both and included stamps. I know that it’s kind of wasteful to put stamps and have people RSVP online but it was more of a concern to us to get as many RSVPs back and if doing both makes it easier for people in any way, then so be it.
