@TwoStatesBride:  Does your web site have a RSVP option ?

You could write on the RSVP the possibility to mail out the card or visit your wedding web site for more information and to RSVP there as well ? It would then make sense to put it on a RSVP card. Chance are that once people will learn there is a web site, they will likelly view it regardless of how they want to RSVP to your wedding.

I would actually put the website with the registry info, or nix the registry info and direct guests to the website for all relevant information.

@MeiFrancis:  Just so you know, its considered a huge no-no to put wedding registry information on an invite in any location.

To the OP, do you have any other inserts at all or just the RSVP and invitation itself? Usually inserts really aren’t that much more, and you really should have an information card with hotel room blocks, etc. if you are bothering with accomodations. Not everyone will check your website so its good to at least have the basic information on hotel/shuttle/etc. on an insert. Just my opinion though!

@TwoStatesBride:  Please don’t take offense to this, but I kind of see giving the guests an option to either send back the RSVP card or RSVP through the website as a waste of money…You are going to send out an RSVP card to each guest which will have a stamp on them and if they decide to RSVP through the webite, then you are out the cost of the stamp (which in my case would be 46 cents) – I know it’s just cents, but it does add up.

I agree with @Caroheart, you should nix the registry info on the invite and just direct them to your website which should have the info for the registry.

@TwoStatesBride:  Oh sorry! I must have misread that :-/ But, I do agree with you that you should make a separate insert for your website info.

@TwoStatesBride:  I mean, if you really don’t have additional information, then maybe somehow putting it neatly on your invitation would work? Since people will be mailing back the RSVP, I don’t think you want to put it there. Chances are, they’re going to want that information (especially your registry) well after they mail that card back. I guess I’m just different in that I tried to treat my website as not the main source for info, and wanted anything truly important to also be on the main invite by way of an insert, but that certainly doesn’t mean that’s the right or only way to do things!

I’ve been wondering about this too. What about just writing the website as the very bottom line of the invitation? Like it would say: “reception to follow” and then “www.yourname.com” underneath? 

I’m only having an invitation and an RSVP card, so I also don’t want to do a whole different insert card just for that! How do we do it???

I used postcard Save The Dates but I asked that my guests go to my website to RSVP. I don’t see a problem with putting the website info on the RSVP.

@TwoStatesBride:  I would check to see if it will cost you same by adding another piece of paper, then to loose a potential stamp cost. You have to check your weight restrictions etc..

I would really just include the info on your RSVP card.

@RunnerBride13:  That is also a really good idea
