Sooo I realize this is probably an etiquette no-no, but I’ve decided against sending a pre-stamped envelope with the RSVPs. I’m on a tight budget, and I’ve heard many people don’t even mail them back.
I’m including an e-mail address, which is convenient for most, and my phone number for those who don’t have e-mail or don’t want to e-mail.
Here’s the current version of my RSVPs (open to opinions & change).
I guess my question is: Do you think anyone will be just absolutely appalled by this, or do you think it’ll be fine for most people? How would you feel about receiving this?
If I need to change the wording, what do you suggest?

Honestly, most people sent me their responses via email and FB or text… I told them thanks for their response but I’d appreciate it if they mailed it back because I was keeping track of them a certain way (I just didn’t want my damn postage to go to waste! lol)
I think now-a-days people prefer to send the responses electronically.

Honestly you know your guests better than we do. I’m inviting a lot of old school Italian family members who would be appalled if we did this. If your guests are more tech savvy than mine I don’t think it’s a problem!! 🙂

I think its fine. I personally would have preferred to get all of my responses electronically, but we mailed ivites. One thing I would consider is not leaving the RSVP line blank. (depending on your venue and food budget) My RSVP read we have reserved ____of 2 seats for you. To at least limit the crazy people that would try to bring 3 and 4 people. Sorry we can only afford 2 guest per household..Exceptions with family. My friend got RSVP response from people and some of them were outragious… 6 and 7 guest on one RSVP??? seriously?!

@specialklove: Lol ya! I don’t plan to leave it blank when I send them out. I’m going to write in the # on each RSVP.

I definitely wouldn’t be offended by having to reply via phone/email. That’s what most people did for us anyway. I asked them to mail them in anyway because I wanted them for a keep sake (and didn’t want the postage to go to waste).

I think its fine I wouldnt worry bout it. Honeslty most people forget to mail them back anyways and then call or email and say btw we are coming… lol this is a good way to do it IMO.

I’m kind of a old-school kind of person, so it would not be my first choice, but I think its fine – you know your guests better than any of us.

I wish I would have done this! I think only 1/3 of my guests sent back RSVPs, everyone in my immediate family wanted to keep the RSVP card, weird.

As much as I would love for everyone to send me the cards back … I know it will never happen.
So I’m not going to waste money and pre-stamp the envelopes. I put my E-Mail address on them. And his family lives near by and will most likely either give us the card back, call/text him and tell him or send him a message on facebook.
