I am wanting to give my guests the option of mailing back the RSVP card or just sending us an email. This is the wording I came up with:
Please respond before July 1st
by email to [email protected]
or by returning this card
Number attending __
Sorry, cannot attend __
Do you think that sounds ok or is it confusing and or too wordy?

I think that is fine. Do you really want people to reply by email? It is a little less formal so if you’re having a dressy reception it may confuse people who are deciding on outfits. Plus, if you’re pre-stamping reply envelopes (recommended) its kind of a waste of stamps on your part.
But, if thats ok by you then it should be fine.

Agree with the stamps issue…why waste them? Also think email is very handy for lots of folks and also environmentally hip. Tough call but I’d go one way or the other so you’re not wasting stamps or wasting trees unnecessarily if you want email RSVPs.

I did this, I just wanted to make it easy on people to reply however they wanted to reply. Our wording on the RSVP card was “Please RSVP by mail or email by <date>”. Under that, there was the standard RSVP format: name; accepts; declines and under that we listed the email address.
It hasn’t caused any problems, though I would say so far more people have used the cards than have emailed.
