@Katnisseverdeen:  We did this and it worked really well.  We didn’t have to chase after anyone for their RSVP.

I think it depends– if you have a lot of older people or non-internet savvy people, it might be a problem. Honestly, I’m 23 and a friend of mine did e-invites in the form of a cute video and I thought it was really fun and unique. If you’re not having a super formal wedding, I would think it would be ok. Otherwise, (if the wedding is super formal) an e-vite might be misleading about the nature of the event.

I put an email and a couple phone numbers (my parents and DH’s) for our RSVP’s.  Worked fine for us.  Of course, we still had to call guests that hadn’t RSVP’d yet, but I never heard from anyone that it wasn’t “acceptable” or “inconvenient”

We used email/phone. It ended up working out pretty well – older folks who weren’t comfortable with internet, called, and my responses came in much faster. Bonus: the last few days when I hadn’t heard from 40% – I didn’t have to wait to see if they were hung up in the mail system anywhere. I was able to start calling/emailing right away.

We’re doing our website. And we’ll include a card if they want to RSVP but we aren’t stamping them and encouraging them to “go green” and keep the invite as a keepsake (it’ll look like a sporting event ticket)

There is no etiquette rule that says you have to use USPS to mail an invitation or a reply. 

But the type of invitation should match the formailty level of the event.  So if you were having a very formal affair this would probably not work, but anything less then super formal should be fine.

We mailed out paper invites but set up the rsvp online through weddingwire it was awesome since weddingwire makes it super easy to transfer all rsvps to the seating arrangement chart.

Were also doing RSVPs by email/phone/wedding website – ive talked to my grandparents about this and they said “oh we dont have a computer!” or “we dont know how to use that on the internet!” but they do know how to pick up a phone! itll suffice :))
