I would use a physical address unless  your parents don’t want everyone to know their address.  not sure

One of my relatives has a situation where they are required to have a P.O. Box because mail isn’t delivered to their physical address location. (UPS is, but mail isn’t – go figure.) Best thing to do is check with your parents about why they have a PO Box. You wouldn’t want your RSVPs getting lost because their physical address isn’t deliverable!!

 You could use their P.O. Box, but spell it out "Post Office Box" in fancy script (if your invite style meshes with that)… that way you’d be sure everything would arrive OK to the correct address.

I have had important invitations sent back to me and I am glad that my return address was on there.  Put the P.O. Box on there, but do as the previous poster said and spell it out.

We actually had two invitations returned; one cousin had moved, and forgot to give us her new address, and one friend had broken up with his girlfriend and moved out of her apartment, and she wasn’t forwarding his mail…  So if mail can’t be delivered to their physical address, it could be a problem.

Although my parents hosted the wedding (which was apparent from the invitation) I used my return address for the RSVPs – because I wanted the fun of getting all the little envelopes in the mailbox!  My mom had no issues with that, as long as I kept track of the RSVPs and also kept her up to date.  I would call her every night to tell her how many came that day, and which ones.
