    That’s not a bad idea! I hear it’s really hard to get people to send in the already stamped response cards though so as long as you think your guest would log on and reply I say go for it!

    If you are having a more casual wedding and most of your guests are internet savy, I say go for it!! I love the vintage feel of the postcard. Will yours be similar?

    I think they look great, but not all of our guests are interweb people. ๐Ÿ™ I think things like this typically (again, depends on your crowd!) work best as STDS.

    The postcard thing is cute but I DON’T like the rsvp online thing. If a person won’t send in a stamped card, why would they go online? Getting down to it, if they forget or get lazy about rsvping, I don’t think there would be much of a difference for that. There will still be those ones that you have to track down.

    I kind of agree with maybe more for the Save-The-Date Cards, I was actually thinking about doing that and have seen some really cute ones. I don’t think a postcard is really an invitation, I don’t know.

    The online thing, just seems not very personal and very, very informal, even for an informal wedding. And I also think that maybe for the older generation (ie grandparents, some aunts and uncles), they may not be interenet savvy or use often.

    Maybe if you could present the internet rsvp as an option but I wouldn’t base my guest count on it.

    Sorry this may sound harsh, I don’t mean for it to be so but I hope it helps!

    O and to address your mentioning 120+ invites, you won’t have that much because think about it, you don’t send one to each guest, you’ll send them to families, couples, so on. For instance, my guest count is about 200 or so but we aren’t sending out 200 invites. From what I’ve heard from others and from my planner, we’ll probably have less than half, maybe 50-75.

    I think some of the older folks on our guest list would be confused but it would be cool for the younger guests who would know what to do. I’d probably get a zillion calls from my Aunt’s wondering what it is.

    I’m also kind of leery about putting my information out there like that. I love the postcard idea, but I’m weird about privacy stuff, so I’d probably still put it in an envelope! LOL

    We did post card STDS and our reply cards are post cards as well  I LOVE the post cards.  Our invites are not traditional by any means – but they totally represent the feeling we want at our wedding.

    I’m usually ALL for saving monies, but the idea of my wedding info going out on a postcard, that anyone can see, is a little mch for me…

    Post cards would make good stds and rsvp’s but not invitations simply because not all the guest are internet savvy or even own a computer…
