I just received a snail mailed wedding invite from a friend telling us to RSVP online at their website. I told Darling Husband about it and he was like “FINALLY someone uses modern technology!” ahahaha!! So from my end, I have no problem with it. I immediately logged onto their website and RSVPed, but that may just be me.

@afrswife0117:  I did this!  For the most part, everyone uses the internet anyways so why not utilize it and save some money!  The ones I was slightly worried about (grandparents, etc.) just had one of the aunts/uncles they live near RSVP for them. ๐Ÿ™‚

@Puppy Love:  do it!! better yet, have everyone input their food choices into a form that feeds into a spreadsheet. =P

@afrswife0117:  I just put on the back of the invitation for everyone to rsvp on our website. I did have to end up calling a lot of people, mainly because they forgot though.

@carbear02:  I’m not sure how to take this.  Haha but my website does have them put in their meal choice and I believe I can output it into a spreadsheet if I like. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sure, why not! I’ve been to two wedding recently that had email rsvps.

Note: Guests usually assume a digital, less-traditional RSVP means a more casual wedding.

It’s getting more common, but I know some older guests (and myself included) prefer the more formal, traditional route of mailing back the RSVP card.  I also loved coming home to them in the mailbox.

We did website rsvp’s…got a bunch in and had to track down the rest.  It was easy and it’s really nice having it already logged.  The biggest thing was that most of my family didn’t see the link or KNOW that when being asked to RSVP they actually HAD to RSVP.  I was told by several family members “Oh I thought you knew we were coming.”  LOL.

All in all, within 1 week of our deadline we had all of our RSVPs accounted for ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m surprised that your friend wasted that much money on stamps. I did stamped RSVPs + wedding website and 98% of mine returned the stamped one. We did have Internet-savvy guests for the most part, but everyone used the card anyway. I would avoid phone RSVPs bc 1) you’ll be stuck making chit-chat with the caller and 2) if you are on the road/out/etc., then you’ll have to remember that so and so called and said they’re coming and what their entree selections are.
