    We did an online or phonecall RSVP. but if you have written I think you should. If you dont its more likely people will not RSVP like they should.

    You want it to be as easy as possible to pop that sucker in the mail and not give them a reason to put it off and forget about it.

    Yes, not only did I feel like it was our responsiblity to pay for the postage, but I also thought it would encourage our guests to get the RSVP’s back to us.. I personally pay everything online so I RARELY use stamps.. so if I got an RSVP without one I may set it aside until I remembered to get a stamp which could end up slipping my mind.. I figured if it had a stamp, getting one and getting it in the mail wouldn’t be an issue!

    @KingsDaughter:  Clearly you’re not planning to invite anyone over 50 to your wedding. They will be insulted.

    We didn’t have a weddign website, we made an email account just for responses.  We gave that email address (which included our names and wedding date – cute!) and DH’s cell phone number on the wedding invite.

    We didn’t want to waste paper, or postage sending out, or postage receiving back.

    @Ashley_P: Umm before you Assume…I clearly am inviting people over 50 to my wedding…a whole lot to be frank.   Most of them think it’s even stupid I would spend money on sending nice invites out when I can just call and get a RSVP.. so obviously not insulted.

    Yes definitely! I would just because it will help people return the RSVP sooner because it is already set to go. No “setting it aside” to put a stamp on it and then forgetting to send it back.

    We put stamps on our RSVPs. I know a lot of people function digitally so they may not have stamps hanging around and may forget to go get one. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for my guests, so I pre-stamped and pre-addressed them.

    My mother scolded me over the choice of stamps (They were Disney/Pixar stamps) but I had at least 5 people write on the back, “love the stamp!”

    We didn’t do website/phone RSVPs because I’ll honestly forget where I wrote it down and when it comes time to tally things up, I’ll be SOL. I need a physical item to remember.

    @Hyperventilate:  I’d have loved your stamps 🙂

    I also didn’t give people the option of a website/phone/email RSVP because I’d forget where to look and it would take me longer to tally it all up.

    @everyheart:  We put stamps on all our RSVP envelopes, and I’ve had people complain to me that they can’t just hand it back to me, now they HAVE to mail it. I always just laugh and say, hand it back to me, and I’ll take the stamp off and reuse it. I’ve been told repeatedly by these same people I wasted my money with the stamp (it was 61 cents.. I’ll live).

    My point is, no matter what you choose, you won’t please everyone unfortunately.

    If it’s a formal wedding, and you plan on doing old school wedding RSVP’s via mail, then YES definitely include a stamp.

    Yes, You want to make it as simple as possible for people to RSVP. And even though it’s prestamped, preaddressed you will still have a lot of people who can’t figure out they need to RSVP so get ready to be PO’ed LOL

    Yes – I don’t even think it should be an issue.  If you are inviting someone to your party, they shouldn’t have to spend money to accept.  Wedding etiquette dictates that.  Plus, it makes it  easier on the invitees.
