I know a couple of weddings I have been invited to have had RSVP postcards instead of formal response cards with a separate envelope. They are less expensive since they don’t require an extra envelope and because postage is cheaper, but would it make ME look cheap? My SO thinks I’m silly because it’s not “that” much more but I keep seeing all of the little things that keep adding up to big amounts. What do you ladies think?

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

I think it a great way to save some money and I think they *can* look really cute as well 🙂

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 don’t mind the idea at all!

Oh I’m so glad! We could really save some cash on doing this! I’ve been doing a little more research and have found the USPS measurement requirements just in case anyone else is thinking the same thing.
Thanks for the feedback ladies! I’m excited and now have to come up with a cute idea…I’m DIY-ing all of the invites/rsvp’s. Yikes…

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.
