Definitely stamp them,  if you want them back.

Hmm.  This is interesting.  Of all the RSVPs that I’ve received, not one of the had a stamp.  Now mind you, most of them showed an online option or an email address to reply with our RSVP.

I stamped only the old people who I didn’t really want to come, as horribel as that sounds. Actually my whole RSVP situation was online except for older people who may or may not be online savvy. I printed out RSVP cards for them and stamped them. They were mostly people I was expecting to decline, think only 1 ended up coming.

I am very old-fashioned about my invitations to dinners and teas and such, and generally do not even put “R.sv.p.” onto the invitation, since even that was considered only marginally polite back when I was a girl. I generally still get close to a 100% response rate. Most people text their reply. Typically only the over-50 crowd, and a handful of girls who love all things vintage including vintage etiquette, actually send their replies by mail. The crowd in their thirties and forties are the ones most likely to simply not reply until asked in person (they’re the ones who put the “almost” in my first sentence.) I make sure my guests have my street address, smart-phone number, land-line number and email address, and leave the rest up to them.
