I am living in Australia at the moment, but am originally from Canada. I’m about to send out my Save The Dates, but to save on postage ($2.75 to send internationall!! Ouch!!) I’m sending my Mom a parcel of addressed invites to send to all of our Canadian guests (since the majority of our guests are from Canada).
Does anyone know if I can still put my Australia address as the return address even though the letters are being mailed from Canada?

I am in the US so I don’t know how much the Canadian postal service differs. But you can write whatever you want, but it won’t make it back to you if the postage isn’t international postage. It’ll just end up in an “undeliverable” box at the post office.

I can’t imagine why not. You are paying for the correct postage from the origin. Are you having anyone mail anything back? Then you need the correct rate to Australia

Could you maybe get them sent back to your mum instead?

I wouldn’t it is a good way for it to get lost in the mail.

Thanks guys! These are just out save the dates, so no one will be mailing anything back. Haven’t figured out the best way to deal with invites/RSVPs yet.

I would suggest mailing out paper invitations but listing our wedding website as the place to RSVP, and using an online RSVP form on the wedding website. That’s what we are doing.
– We don’t have to pay for our guests’ postage back to our country
– It’s really easy for our guests to RSVP. They just have to fill out a form on your website and be done. No post office BS or anything out of the usual technological habits.
– People will actually go to our wedding website, and maybe even read all the helpful information I’ve worked so hard on making nice for them.
– I have more space on the RSVP form to ask questions if I want to, or change things around anytime if I want to.
– It is really clear (a) who RSVPs, (b) that nothing got “lost in the mail” at least on the way back, (c) I don’t have to read a bunch of messy handwritten responses, (d) I get emailed the RSVP immediately.
All that said, if you don’t already have a wedding website, I can help out, just PM me.
