You don’t need to include response cards or postage, traditionally. In that case guests should respond on their own notepaper – that is the super-traditional etiquette. However whether that will work or not depends on the wedding! If it is smaller/mostly family I would say go for it!

One thing is that most people have no idea how much invitations cost. I know I had NO idea before planning my own wedding. So don’t worry about them judging you for spending too much 🙂

You cut down on buying multiple pieces you can print all the info needed on the invite: put your names, the venue, and address. That way it’s all on one piece of paper. You don’t need to do directions or a map at all. Then just include a RSVP card and bam. You are done my friend. My friend did all this DIY and it cost her less than $20 for 100 invites and RSVPs with envelopes for both invite and RSVP.

We sent one, thin piece of paper. It had the basic wedding invite info and then a link to our website which had more info and a place to RSVP.

I’m glad that we decided to do that because not only is it better for the environment, but it saved us money on paper and heavy postage.

we are going send an invitation and rsvp card. we support money saving + paper saving…

after all, some/most people will throw them away afterwards, so I don’t bother to do so much… rather save money for other areas.

i suggest that you do whatever you feel comfortable with. there is no fixed rules to send invitations. consider yourself as a creative and modern bride!
