You may want to put the rsvp deadline on the card.  I like the overall look of the card and the look of your invitation.  Is your reception at the same location as your wedding?  I guess I’m looking for something more as to the location of the reception.  But then I’m old school.  Invites used to say “Reception immediately following in the courtyeyard/fellowship hall/garden or where it will take place.”  😉

They’re simple and pretty – the look is good. I would spell everything out – e.g. highway. I’d put the name of the place before its address. Are you on a budget? Is that why it’s online rsvp? If you are really on a budget check out paperless post – we used them for our rehearsal dinner and out-of-towners party invitations and people seem to like them. Generally I prefer the formality of a paper rsvp card (even though it’s a bit silly). Then I’d just have a directions card and print the website very subtley on the bottom. We had two cards – invitation and rsvp – directions are on the website and in welcome bags.

Can you put the website on the invitation? Is there a reason you felt a need to include extensive directions – it sounds like you could put that on your website.

I think they’re looking good.  As Rachelss mentioned, it’s be a good idea to spell everything out, like Highway.  It just looks more formal, and will fill out the space better.  Also, do you have listed where the wedding will take place?  I’m guessing the address is blurred, but you should make sure to include the name of the venue like St. Mary’s Church, or The Countrywood Gardens, and then include “reception immediately following”  or “reception following at The Hilton Garden Inn at 3 o’clock.”  I think it’s really smart to put a phone number as well as your website to rsvp.  It’s important to remember that you may have some guests that aren’t computer savvy, or even own a computer.  🙂

@fitzly: The directions are probably there for those guests who need directions, but will not go to their wedsite like older relatives.
