We’re in the process of designing our invitations. I want them to be done pronto cause our wedding seems like it’s coming up so fast!
So I’m wondering has anyone used them and had a good experience with them or a bad experience with them? Any complaints?
Has anyone received them and liked them or disliked them?
I like the idea of postcards (we just sent postcard save the dates) and then I don’t have to worry about envelopes and can get cheaper postage too. 🙂

I voted the last option EXCEPT I dont think they are tacky lol I just wouldnt use them as my friend did them and I was the only person to send it back…

I’m doing RSVP postcards. I’m all for saving the postage and the envelopes. We’re also doing response postcards when we send out the invites. I hadn’t thought of that originally, but it was how the design was done with the person I’m using on Esty to design my invites.

@kate_goat: Wow really!? I wondered if some people would be confused, but I mean you know you have to RSVP to a wedding… that seems so odd.

ordered mine today!
I wish I had a picture on this computer to show you, I de3signed them in word and they go with our invitations, the rsvp and programs. I think its an awesome idea, but im biased.
Edt – i didn’t read oops! I just ordered Save the Date post cards, if you have already done post cards I wouldnt do it again, even though it is a great idea

@goldie602: Word to the wise: even though they’re post cards, still include a return address in case you have the wrong address or the mail gets messed up.

I don’t think someone didn’t RSVP because it was a post card instead of a little rsvp card with an envelope, I think people don’t RSVP because they’re neglectful and rude. There are always people who don’t RSVP to every single wedding, it’ll happen regardless.
I think it’s a cute idea and if it has a stamp and says RSVP on it, then there’s not much to be confused about.

I used rsvp postcards and it worked out great. At first I was a bit weirded out thinking that all the post office people will see our engagement photo but I got over it after seeing how much I can save on postage. LOL.
The rsvp postcard was included in our pocket invitation with the word RSVP and our engagement photo on one side and this on the other
I ordered it from Overnightprints.com. If I can do it over again I’d probably just add more border around it to account for postage markings.
Oh and I also numbered them so that in case people forgot to write in their name I can just look up who’s postcard it was on my notes =)

I used postcard RSVPs and didn’t have a problem (other than ugly Aloha postcard stamps….)

@mchitt329: I saw those same stamps too! What is up with that? I might try to use older stamps or find some online as opposed to what the post office has. My friend also has a bunch of stamps he got from estate sales so I can probably buy them from him… lol.

@ImHungry247: I was also going to number them too just in case! Thanks for the advice and example!! We were careful about the borders when we made our Save the Dates so I’d definitely be careful with these ones.
@phillybride61513: I definitely plan to include a return address as well. thanks!

I won’t be putting a picture on it (we did that for the save the date) but will have a matching design to the invitation with the RSVP info on one side and probably just our address on the other side.
