@artichokey:  Perhaps send it without postage and send a nice note giving them the option of emailing you their RSVP? This will also save on the long mail time and it possibly getting lost in internation mail. I think there is an “international” stamp you can buy at yoru post office, but email is so much easier!

ETA: I sent my international ones without postage, and almost anyone coming from out of the country just ended up calling my parents – I provided email and phone number options.

I sent it without.  They all ended up using the website RSVP option that I gave them.  🙂

We only had one international invite. I included a note letting them know an e-mail rsvp would be great, but we already kinda knew they weren’t going to attend.

Your international guests will not be expecting that you have access to their postage stamps.

As someone who recently moved to the UK and recently was invited to 2 weddings, I was not expecting postage to be on my RSVP envelopes.

One wedding I e-mailed my regrets, the other I paid for a stamp and sent back my yes RSVP.

I just felt bad they had to spend extra postage to send international invites!

I didn’t include postage for international guests. I gave them the RSVP card and I just inserted a note to call/email to RSVP.
