Will you have an ‘information’ card? If so, put your website info on there and then have a RSVP page on your website explaining how to rsvp. I think that’s totally fine.

I think RSVP by those methods is totally fine. You’ll end up tracking people down by phone or email anyway, so why shouldn’t the rest of your guests send their responses that way too.

I had people email me for an rsvp. I made all of my invites, respones and thank you cards. However, there was only 50 to do. No that i did love making them.

Good news: the most formal and proper invitation is a single sheet, containing all necessary information; without any enclosure cards and with no R.s.v.p. form or stamped self-addressed envelope. Polite guests who are informed about formal etiquette will know to take out their own social stationery and send a hand-written reply to the return address on your invitation. To inform other guests who don’t know about formal etiquette, you put the letters “R.s.v.p.” followed by a phone number, email address, and/or website; letting guests know that these reply options are available to them.

Is it not lovely when the most proper thing, also turns out to be the most affordable? You might be surprised just how often traditional etiquette works exactly that way!
