- Wedding: June 2018 - Tizer Gardens/Carroll College
I was dinking around thinking about my invites, and I can’t quite decide what do to about the RSVP. On the one hand, we have a wedding website, and I’d just rather people use that to RSVP, but I know that there are those of a certain generation who would rather not use online.
So I was thinking about splitting the difference, and only putting a paper RSVP in with those who would be more likely to use hardcopy RSVP? And make sure we note that people can rsvp online on our website.
For an RSVP, I wonder if you can do that postcard style to cut back on waste and cost??? You normally have to include an envelope with postage on it for this kind of thing, right?

I think you can definitely do a postcard style RSVP. I’ve been working with an Etsy artist to design our invitations, and that was something we discussed doing. I’ve decided that we’ll just ask everyone to RSVP online and if there are a few older people who can’t figure that out, we’ll just call them to confirm if they’re coming.

I am allowing the option to RSVP online but we ARE including rsvp cards and prestamped envelopes as well. In my mind, RSVP’s are hard enough to get back, maybe if I give them 2 options they will actually respond. LOL
Yes, you can do a postcard
No, I would not send paper RSVP’s to only certain people.

Either do them, or don’t do them and follow up with a call for the folks that won’t go online. It would seem weird to me if I didn’t get an rsvp card but my mom did…
Personally I wouldn’t use a postcard style just because of privacy. But then, I’d also log online to rsvp so no big deal for me.
