    It’s not rude at all.

    We’re doing it.  I think it saves money AND resources.

    Not tacky at all – It saves money and it’s greener than separate envelopes. Go for it!

    … it’s not really that big of a deal.

    I voted “not tacky”, because response cards are a new thing not covered in etiquette, so there’s no ‘right’ way to do them. 

    If you really want to save money, skip the response cards altogether.  People can make the effort to write you a little note on their own paper and use their own stamp – 50 cents isn’t a lot for anyone, but 50 cents x # of guests is a lot.

    Not a big deal at all! We’re definitely considering using postcard RSVPs – so much cheaper!!

    I think postcards are great.  A cheaper and GREENER alternative, way less wasted paper.

    I don’t think it is tacky at all. We are actually going to list our website and phone number on the RSVP card, which some may consider tacky…

    I did receive a post card RSVP and I had never seen one before.  I thought it was quite brillliant and it went well with their wedding.

    However, I am not doing that.
