Pre-address the RSVPs. I bought a stamp for that part because writing out our address over and over and over again sounded awful.

kcoast :  I got our addresses preprinted on the outter envelope and on the RSVP envelope because it was .17 each and it was totally worth my peace of mind. I was in grad school and moving while planning the wedding.

Traditionally, guests would use their own stationery and stamp to reply, which means they would be writing your address themselves.

But if you are going to use reply cards, which, truth be told,  almost everyone does these days, then I’d recommend handwriting your address. That, along with engraving, is actually considered the most personal and correct way to address a social invitation.

I got a lovely personalized address stamp for only $20. Soooo worth it! I used it to put our return address on the invite. You could also use it to address your rsvp envelopes. 

If you’re really keen to hand write your rsvp envelopes, just wrote your own address. I wouldn’t bother with a return address for the person your inviting (I think that’s a question you asked in the reply above?). You know your own address is good and you don’t WANT the rsvp cards to go back to the guest. Just put your address on it.
