I still have a little while to send invitations and collect RSVPs but I am just wondering what methods you all used!
Please vote and if you have any suggestions for what worked and what didn’t let me know!

i did it the traditional way (post mail) and had no problems at all. only a couple of late ones. i knew they were coming, they were just lazy. we had meal selections on our too so i needed them all.

@mypinkshoes: Sounds like that worked for you! We’re not having meal selections, so I don’t think we would have to do snail mail. Thanks for sharing though!

I did postcard RSVPs as well. I didn’t have a meal choice, just name, how many adults, and how many children (this kind of drove me nuts because I assumed by children people knew it meant for the meal, but many people were putting down their 19 year old kids as children when they should be adults. The reason this was huge for me is because we need 150 adult meals [anyone over 10]). I have gotten the majority of my RSVPs back and the due date isn’t until June 9, so I am quite pleased.
I know a lot of brides have problems getting them back, and I don’t know if it is just where we live but everyone has been pretty responsible. I think it was a combination of a fun RSVP (we had a gladly accept, regrettfully decline, regrettfully attend, glady decline RSVP) and stamping them for the guest. Once the date arrives, I will be calling and /or e-mail guests to find out if they are coming or not.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
I was originally thinking of using our wedding website to do RSVPs, however we have a limited guest list and I do not want people just randomly bringing extra people.. so the plan now is snail mail RSVP cards with the invites (plus a “We have reserved #__ seats for you” blurb).

We provided the option to do the traditional snail mail return or on our website.
The vast majority of guests mailed in their RSVP, only a handful used the website.

Snail mail here sucks so we’re doing phone RSVPs officially and wedding website. I will accept email and FB rsvp’s as well to make it as easy as possible for my guests. FI’s family is NOTORIOUS for never respondng to an RSVP so I will most likely be on their ass traking them down at the last minute either way.
