Saw a lot of threads about this but was curious to do a poll
i’d love to do RSVPs online for instant gratification, going green, and saving $, but worried about the website crashing and losing all the data or something crazy like that!

we did RSVP online! The main reason I did this was to help control ppl inviting additional guests (which happens alot with paper RSVPs.)
Through our wedding website, people choose from a drop down box w/ their names that we entered, that way if Aunt A & Uncle B were invited, but we didn’t invite their daughter (cousin A) only the aunt & uncle would be able to select their names to RSVP, adding daugter/cousin A wouldn’t be an option.
The online RSVP was well recieved by our guests too, b/c many admited that even when the bride & groom put postage on the RSVP, for some reason dropping off that little card was so easy to forget. But ours online was very easy 🙂

We did online, both for ease of use, and to cut down on costs.

i can’t wait to get our rsvps in the mail! i didn’t want to give that up, and i’m not using postcards because i’m worried about them getting too damaged.
i definitely wouldn’t worry about websites crashing and losing info!

I am doing the old fashioned paper ones. One reason is I like them, I think it adds a touch of class. But two, a large amount of my family is older and not internet friendly. I didn’t want to confuse them.

We’re doing both. We’re including an RSVP card and reply envelope in the invitation but we’re also including an insert with our wedding website URL, telling them they’re welcome to RSVP that way as well.

I’m going RSVPs via our website. All of our guests are tech-savvy, so it makes sense.

I’m going to include the RSVP card with postage, but if they want to RSVP online that’s fine too.

I want to do postcards only because I think they’re cute lol. Plus, I’m having a laid back wedding and I think it fits the mood better.
My sister is doing online RSVPs.

We are doing a mix of both. For almost everyone will we just do the website RSVP. However there are a few people that are not tech aavvy that we will send a more formal invitation with the RSVP card. Also to some of our VIPS we will send a formal traditional invitation with a RSVP card, like grandparents, Although our only granparent has an IPAD we think she would really appreciate the formal invitation with all the traditional information.

I think postcards are adorable! And save money!

@suubchb: I’m doing online RSVP’s and sending the cards. If people want to send them back, then they can do it. I’m not providing postage though. You hear about too many people just being lazy.

@Miss Tattoo: That’s what I think we’re going to do. There will be the traditional-looking RSVP card, with all the blanks to fill in, but it will also have a line about how you can RSVP on the website. If anyone really wants to mail it back, they can find their own stamp. 🙂

We did online and phone RSVP. We didn’t have any issues with it.

Definitely the traditional route with RSVP cards and envelopes to mail back! What can I say, I am a traditionalist. Plus, I have so many older family members that probably have never been on a computer.
