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.
