I wouldn’t be offended but I would be wondering if I was still invited if I didn’t actually receive an invite, just a post card save the date.  Adding an RSVP, even just an online RSVP, might help people understand that the post card is the invitation and not just a STD.

I would probably just think it was a save the date with a lot of information on it.

We sent postcard Save-The-Date Cards and everyone loved them! I personally wouldn’t be offended at all, I think it would be fine to send invitations that way! However, I think you need to have some way for people to RSVP, either by phone/email/website whatever.

@globalmargaret: I think the postcard idea is fine but that you def need a way for your guests to RSVP even if it is just through email. Save the dates are so common now a days that without RSVP invitiation, it may be difficult to tell the difference

@globalmargaret: If you set up a wedding website through The Knot, one of the options for the website is to add an RSVP page, it’s free and would be a good option for you I think.  As far as postcards, we did Save the date postcards through 123print.com (very similar to vistaprint) and they turned out really well, everyone liked them.  You can order free paper samples (postcards is one of the options) through vistaprint and 123print.

@globalmargaret:  

I just started a wedding website through MyWedding.com and I really love it.  Just sent it out and have already had RSVPs for a wedding 5 months away.  Lots of designs and options for you.  Good luck!
