    My dad is older, and therefore his side of the family is older, and don’t really use computers, nor necessarily know how. I know it sounds old fashioned, but it’s the truth. So I would send out RSVPs to be mailed back. Not everyone actually does have internet access at home and so it’s not easy for everyone. Others may disagree but I can tell you that not all of my dad’s family has internet. Just my two cents:)

    omg! my finacee suggested the same thing a couple of days ago. I have a lot of older (and non-english speaking) relatives and they wouldn’t RSVP but he’s like, well we know they are coming, just call them haha. boys. I personally will probably stick with regular RSVPs 🙂 Good luck!

    I’m doing it. Our wedding is mostly extremely close friends and relatives so I am not worried about it and I also put on there they could call us, also.

    I would LOVE to be able to do this, but unfortunately our traditional-etiquette-lovin’ family members would be appalled.  But if you know your guests and you think they’d go for it, I’d do it!

    Have you already printed the RSVP cards?  If so, I feel like it’s almost a waste.

    There are a lot of people in the world that still aren’t down with the internet (hard to believe-I KNOW), so for that reason I voted to go the traditional route.

    Also, there’s something sweet about getting a note back from your guests & waiting for the snail mail to arrive!

    We did email Save-The-Date Cards and invitations, and had everyone RSVP online. But our wedding is not traditional at all, and we have a small guest list, and the only person who doesn’t use email on it was my grandma!

    If your wedding is more traditional, I would stick to regular mail RSVPs.

    Hmm, then I would say you can go either way. Personally I love getting stuff in the mail since I get emails all day long, but from experience, it does make tracking exactly who’s coming WAY easier, and it was free.

    We did printed RSVP cards and stamped response envelopes, but also offered a RSVP online option on our website, which we gave the address to on the cards.  Probably about 25% RSVPd online, and they did it FAST, so that was a good thing.  I also used the RSVP online feature on our mywedding.com website to add in the responses of those people who mailed their cards, as they came in– it made it super easy to keep track of numbers, since it was all in one place.

    Well we are doing RSVP on our wedding website since most of our guests are internet literate and we will call the few (grandparents and a few older relatives) who are not. However, since you have already made yours and if i remember correctly your wedding is not huge, so to me it makes sense to just use the RSVP’s you have.

    Shannon we had rsvp cards, but not ones that they are going to send back it just had our details on them for them to send reply, by email or phone.

    heres what ours look like, they are included in the invitation, just not providing with envelope. maybe you could do the same??
