    I think that if you’re giving guests the option of replying online, you could safely leave the stamp off the RSVP.  Seems like including the stamp would be a waste of postage when most people will end up replying online.  I wouldn’t think anything of it if I received it without postage prepaid.

    As for the second question, I would set the RSVP date 2 weeks before the date your venue needs a final count.  I would think that would give you enough time to track people down.

    @Cdoonan:  I would give the internet option but keep in mind the technical literacy of some of your guests.  If they are older rsvping by internet might seem too weird to them.  For those older guests or technically illiterate you might want to include a stamp on their rsvps.

    I would use the rsvp portion to put the info to rsvp by email or online.

    Put the rsvp deadline two weeks before you need your numbers. That should be plenty of time to track people down.

    Not to stress you out but even after you give your final number your number will change. People will cancel or say yes, but it will balance itself out.

    @Cdoonan: It shouldn’t take you a month to track people down.  I’d give yourself 2 weeks at the max.

    I’d say just send the older folks (granny and gramps) one with a stamp and make sure you send everyone the website!  If I had the option as a guest, I’d RSVP online.
