Leave it up. 🙂 If they can let you know as soon as they get the STD, so much the better.

I had an RSVP tab but it was for the welcome dinner and the rafting the next day.  the actual wedding RSVP would have been in print with the invite.

I deactivated that tab and explained what is was for.  People could say yes, but then find out a year later they really cannot go, that would be hard to undo stuff.

We had several people say, “So does this mean we’re invited?  Where do we respond?” 

“Also, I still would send everyone invitations next year, even if they RSVP’d no to the STD. That could be confusing/odd too.”

Yes that is what you do even if they said yes or no.

Will you have a web RSVP and mail RSVP?

I would keep it hidden until you send your invitations — which is when people will likely actually RSVP.

I would remove it temporarily, or replace that tab with something that says “Formal Invitations will be sent at a later date” (or even send that along with your save the dates).  Yeah it’s good to get that count early, but you don’t want to pressure anyone far in advance, plus anything could happen so what could  be a yes or no RSVP at the time of your save the dates could be the opposite at the time your invites are out.
