    I am planning on supplying postage, but it’s not absolutely necessary. From what I’ve heard, the etiquette rule is that it’s nice to supply it, but you don’t have to!

    I did apply postage, because I personally wouldn’t ever send one back that didn’t have postage. I’d probably save myself the money and call them to rsvp! Shameless, I know..

    I think aside from being a nice thing to do, it will expedite getting RSVPs back – people don’t have to look for a stamp, one less thing standing between it and the mailbox!

    I would supply it.  It gives people no excuse not to send in a reply.

    I agree with eriqua – it’s a nice gesture, but more importantly, it will save you time and effort b/c people will be more likely to send their RSVP’s back on time!

    You don’t have to; however, chances are you won’t get them back in a timely manner, if at all, if you don’t. I know if I have to find a stamp, it takes me forever and then whatever I am mailing sometimes gets forgotten because I keep forgetting to get a stamp for it.

    Out of curiosity (we’re not sending RSVP cards. It’s not all that common over here) how are you guys dealing with overseas RSVPs whilst supplying postage?

    we’re doing online/phone rsvp so we don’t have to! but if we did do snail mail we would definitely supply postage, i think i just expect it so i would do it for other people too.

    I did put stamps on people who i knew were coming/thinking about coming. I didnt put stamps on rsvps for family i knew wasnt coming(?) weird i know.. but i know a lot of my family wanted the invite to send us a gift and just to get one. I still got RSVPS from those family members too! So i dont think its necessary, but i wouldnt send back an rsvp that didnt have a stamp on it.

    Yes. I have never received an RSVP without one so the chances are pretty good that I wouldn’t check. Therefore the RSVP would get delay in return. Definitely a good touch!

    I never heard of getting a RSVP to send back without postage.

    @littlemiss: If you take one of your RSVP’s to the post office they can tell you how much it will cost to send it back. I have people in Canada, so that is what I will have to do when the time comes.
