@pugsnhugs:  My first thought was to send everyone their invite in the appropriate language, since you’re DIYing and have that freedom. But, it might be exciting for your American guests to get something in Chinese? Maybe that could be accomplised with a letterhead/decorations though. Whatever is easier for you. Remember, nobody will see anyone elses invites 😉

Are RSVPs common in Chinese culture? If yes, then I would, if not then maybe just to the Americans (You probably do want a head count, since it’s harder to know who will be able to come to China?) Your wedding sounds so exciting!

@MsCarabiner:  I agree that it is a unique opportunity for people from both cultures to recieve a bilingual invitation. 

Can you have US rsvp’s sent to his parents? Or just try to do online or email rsvps for people to save having to put all the postage on the return envelopes?

I second using both languages on all of them.  Perhaps you can offer an online RSVP to make things easier for those in the US and other countries (not in China I mean)?

PO box? I’ve never used one before, but maybe you could rent one for a few months. His parent’s place for RSVPs sounds fine to me.

I made some bilingual invites and put both languages on all.

We didn’t do inserts, we had two seperate invitations in the different languages and it worked well for us.

I know this thread is old.  I happened to help a fellow bee on here looking for Chinese invitations.  If any of the Chinese wedding brides need a suggestion, I found a place:

Perhaps, you can try this seller on Etsy.

It looks like the seller may be able to customize.  They have other items too.

Hope that helps someone out.
