Hey guys. I’m working on my invites and am trying to nail down some wording for my RSVP cards. We are going to try to get people to respond by email because its easier and saves me stamp money. What do y’all think about this wording?
Please respond by the Third of September.
_____ Number Attending
Please accept at your convenience by mail or email.
We are looking forward to celebrating with you!
SUGGESTIONS? I AM VERY OPEN TO OTHER WORDING. Thanks!

@derosa: We are considering the same thing. I’m curious, you are listing an RSVP reply card option for them to mail – just no stamp?

We thought about including an envelope and stamp for just those individuals that we know don’t use email (grandparents, older guests, etc.). Its just an idea at the moment. But I can see how the wording would be confusing or some think tacky (for lack of a better word).
I had a friend get married and all she did was say RSVP by this date. Then she had the name line, number attending and her email addresss. She did not include a preaddressed evelope so it was implied to respond by email.

I don’t understand the point of having a name line etc if they don’t need to fill it out.
We are doing online RSVPs (with the option to call or email) and ours read this:
Please reply on or before August 1
by visiting our wedding website at:
Please enter your party’s name as ___________________
___ seats are being reserved in your honor
You may also reply via email to EMAIL
or via phone to ###.###.####
We will fill in the party’s name and the number of seats. We are using the party’s name line because the name has to be entered correctly on the website or else it will create a new entry on the guest list instead of using the one that’s already there.

Oh, also, a friend of mine did a traditional reply card, but at the bottom she wrote people could reply by email/website. She included a pre-stamped return envelope for the card.

What if you just do the normal/traditional response card. Then include the email address and not a pre-stamped envelope. That is how my friend did it, so it was implied to respond by email.

We kept it really simple:
