We have a wedding website listed on our invitations with RSVP info, however I’m assuming only our friends will use that, so I am sending rsvp cards as well. I believe it’s proper etiquette to stamp the return envelopes however, it seems wasteful to stamp 50 envelopes addressed to me when I know only half or less will make it to the mail box. Is it acceptable for me to tear off stamps and put them in the envelope with everything else? That way people who decide to rsvp online can at least put it aside and use it in the future?

I think that is a very clever idea! I’m not sure what proper etiquette is, but I wouldn’t mind at all. It’s a good compromise since you are offering both RSVP options. You may want to cut versus tear though, so they look neat.

I found that people will try to RSVP in all different kinds of ways, no matter what you do. That said, I’d still put the stamps on the return envelope. 50 isn’t that many. Sending a loose stamp seems strange to me, and it could get lost or something and then it’s wasted anyway.

Chances are the people won’t even see a loose stamp when they open the invitation. It would likely fall to the bottom.
I would attach it with either a cute heart paperclip or something similar.

I only had to send out 20… I stamped them & also went ahead and stamped our address to make it super easy for guests.

I would just stamp them. 50 isn’t many and it will give your invites a cleaner look. Just accept that you may have *wasted* a few dollars. Anyway, you might be surprised! Your tech-savvy friends might choose to send a paper rsvp if you have made it easy for them to do so.
