I’d use the return address and not give it a second thought.  I think it’s weird your aunt had a question about it at all.

The address is somewhere in what you sent them so I don’t think it’s an issue at all.

I might be confused if it looks like someone else is hosting the wedding – ie if the invite says

“taysummers mom and dad invite you …”

Then I’d assume you’d sent the RSVP to them. If it says more casual/BG host centric then I’d assume you. However I dont think its bad that she checked, I’m sure she just wanted to ensure you get her RSVP!

No big deal! I would automatically assume to send to the return address! Hopefully if anyone has questions, they will ask you.

Small mistake, there are far worse things that could have happened with the RSVPs like having the wrong venue or names printed on it 😛

I would send it to the return address

Hopefully they all transfer the address to the RSVP envelope before they toss it.

I would have thought the address would have been printed on the envelope, especially since you put stamps on them.    

I would send to the return address, but if your parent’s names were on their as hosts, I can see why she questioned it.

I’m going to be honest… I don’t usually send the RSVP back the instant I receive it so I wouldn’t have the invitation envelope laying around with the return address. I’m trying to get better at filling up my address book but there is a very high chance that I would not have your address.

That being said, I would just text you and ask for your address or look around online to find it. No biggie for me but you might have a few more non responders than usual.
