acglandorf:  Same thing happened to me! I wanted to save money on posage and give guests the option to RSVP by sending back the card or online at our website. Wel my mom went ahead and put stamps on all of our reply envelopes because she didn’t want the older guests to get confused. She even said “Do you really think your Grandma will be able to use RSVP online?” Wellll it turns out the very first guest to RSVP online was from my Grandma!

I think it depends on your guest list. If most are computer savvy they will probably prefer online to paper anyway. However, I agree for guests over a certain age you should make it easier for them by allowing them to mail it in but still take into consideration who is computer savvy. For instances one of my grandmothers is computer savvy so I know her rsvp-ing online wouldn’t be much of a problem but the other one doesn’t even own a computer so she will need to be able to mail or soemthing.  

I have a close knit family though so I may have people call as well. As both of my grandmas live very close to me, one literally right next door so she doesn’t even need an invite at least not a mailed one.

We plan on doing both. I’ only including paper RSVP’s for the 40 & up guests because I know they prefer it. Everyone else is are friends, cousins, and siblings that use computers and smart phones for everything & would rather to it online vs remembering to fill out the card & mail it back.


I think all paper RSVP’s should include a stamp.
