I think online RSVP’s are a great idea, especially because it saves you money and is somewhat good for the environment. I wish I could go with that option, but sadly most of our guests are too lazy to go online and will most likely complain. If most of your guests are rational and easy going, I say go for it!

We love this idea but my FI’s mom almost threw a fit. I kept trying to tell her that most of our guests wouldn’t even send in a paper RSVP so it would be a total waste of money (on the stamps alone).

After talking to my mom we decided that we’ll let our guests RSVP at our website OR call us…. and my Future Mother-In-Law can pay for the rsvp cards and stamps for her side of the family! This way we both win 🙂

LOVE the idea and I say go for it!

We did online rsvp via our website server. It totally worked for us because most of our guests are non-traditional and tech-savvy & I’m cheap too. But I can understand that some people may want to do rsvp cards due to their (or their family members’) penchant for tradition and whatnots.

I have also heard the super traditional ones think that providing an rsvp card presumes that your guests are not classy enough to have their own fancy stationary and as such, would be considered rude. To each his/her own etiquette…whatever….

I am going to ask guests to RSVP online or call but am offering an unstamped RSVP card of sorts in the invite. It won’t look like a traditional RSVP card but will be printed in such a way that they could send that back if they wanted. Some ettiquette things need to change and get with the times! Spending money on stamps when people can go online or call is ridiculous.

We included an online RSVp option but also did the usual postage-paid envelope with RSVP card. We have had ONE person use the online RSVP option so far. But at least they do have the option!

I think it’s a great idea, but it is something that would not have worked for us. The majority of our guests were on the “older” side and we felt like online RSVPs were just not an option.
