How about “Please reply at WEBSITE.COM by DATE”?

ETA: Or “Please visit WEBSITE.COM by DATE to reply”

Simplest and most classic — put

“R.s.v.p.
http://www.website.com

in the lower right-hand corner. Back in the ‘fifties when telephones were becoming acceptable for social calls, that was how R.s.v.p.s were requested for things like dinner parties, only using the phone number instead of the website. And in the twenties, when social secretaries were being used to receive R.s.v.p.s that’s where you put the street address of your social secretary. All of which is interesting, but your guests won’t even need to know the social history since the letters “R.s.v.p.” and the website being right next to each other make the intent obvious.

That’s roughly what we’re doing. Ours say:

We invite you to join us and our families for a celebration of our marriage.

Name + Name

Date
Time
Place
City

Food and festivities to follow at xxx

Please respond by June xx at http://www.ourwebsite.com

…in case that helps! We considered putting a phone option too for the one or two older relatives who aren’t super web-savvy, but decided it wasn’t worth it in the end—we’ll just follow up with them directly if need be. If you have a larger group, though, you could add a phone option.

I like oakster’s option. I’d say do your RSVP date 6 weeks before the wedding. We did it 4 weeks before the wedding and RSVPs were still flowing in at 2 weeks! That will give you more time to figure out your final count and you wont be scrambling around calling everyone so you can get all of your numbers in order in time like me!
