I had invites to send out to HK and Taiwan, and the only thing you can do is just not put a stamp on it.  Those guests will just have to either put on their own postage, or just call you about their attendance or meal choices.

Good luck!

LOL, I had the same dilemma when I mailed out my own invites to Canada and the cheesy, over controlling bride in me had a good friend actually mail me stamps in an envelope so I could properly postage the RSVPs.  Needless to say, he got a good laugh at it (but rocked and did do it for me oh so graciously!) and my family that got the invites were all so surprised that I had taken that level of detail.  If you don’t have the luxury of harrassing good friends like I did, I wouldn’t worry about it.  Realistically, if they’re going to RSVP they would mail it back to you regardless if it’s self postaged…sometimes a phone call will work too!  Don’t stress about it!

By The Way, the friend that mailed me the stamps did receive and invite as well so he saw what good use I put them to!  =)

I just didn’t put stamps on ours and enclosed a little note saying to feel free to rsvp by phone or email if that’s easier, with that contact info written in just in case.  No one opted to buy their own stamp and mail it anyway. 🙂

I agree with Emilie, you should just send the RSVP card w/o a postage to the guest.  It would just be too dificult to try to put the correct postage on the international envelopes. 

If your international guests were internet savvy, you can even have the RSVP via email so that it won’t cost them anything to call you about their attendance.

We had the same issue with invites going to Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan. For Canada, we were actually there in the summer and bought enough stamps for the RSVPs (so if you were really keen you could have someone mail them to you). For the overseas ones we just sent them without postage. Those ones were to older relatives who we didn’t realy think would RSVP via mail anyway (just word of mouth through our parents) but we ended up getting quite a few back with native postage.

I looked into this when I sent out my invites and there is some sort of a voucher that you can send along with the invitations.  They go to the post office and exchange the voucher for the proper postage.  I decided against it, since it seemed like that would be more of a hassle for them than to just put a stamp on it that they would probably otherwise have.
