Can you just gently rip the flap open on the envelopes and then just use a light glue to reclose them?

Maybe try steam and then glue them after?

@creativeplannertobee I agree. Steam should work, then use a glue stick to seal them back up.

for my Destination Wedding, the people who attended did not formally RSVP and the people who declined either did nothing or formally RSVP’d.  so to answer your question, no the RSVP’s did not matter at all.  the invitations themselves were just a formality since my travel had already emailed my guests all the info after i sent out Save-The-Date Cards.  so i counted someone as attending once they were booked.  For a Destination Wedding, booking IS their RSVP!

I’d say 75% of those invited didn’t formally RSVP, maybe more. Some people just didn’t come and didn’t rsvp. Some people told us personally. Some people had to be called by my mom (mostly family on her side) to see if they could make it). Sort of a drag to hear that, but I’m sure other people have better stats. Maybe our friends and family are just lazy, lol


(we invited about 160–40 of which live thousands of miles away and I knew couldn’t come–we had a little over 100 at the wedding. People are so weird about rsvping no, I think we only got maybe 10 no’s, even though almost 60 didn’t come because of the travel/money)
