msmeow13 :  you can create your own insert with your wedding website info. That’s what I did. I just used a label template in Microsoft word and created my own, then punched a hole in them and tied to the invitation with ribbon.

Our “details” Card is actually being printed on the back of our invite and will contain info for parking, accommodations, and the wedding website. Save the dates are still a relatively new thing and not everyone does them. I think it’s fine to include your wedding website right there on the invitation.

Honestly, don’t stress about a wedding website, because the majority of people don’t look at it anyway.   Send it out whenever you planned to send it out.

Personally, I hate when there’s an online RSVP (I ALWAYS almost forget or do forget to respond that way) and would much rather a printed response set (or even a response postcard if you want to save on postage), but that’s just me.

You might could do your own insert card yourself for not much additional cost. Although I don’t find anything wrong with including it on the invitation itself if that’s what you prefer. I don’t think people will think twice about whether the information is on the invitation or a separate piece of paper. The only risky thing about not doing RSVP cards and only doing online is that not a lot of people may take the time to visit your wedding website, especially any elderly guests you might have. It might leave you with making a lot of phone calls to see who is coming and who is not. If you don’t have a large guest list, this may not be a big issue though. I know RSVP cards can be a little pricey, but depending on your food cost per guest, it might pay for itself. Just my opinion though!

I wouldn’t worry so much about the website. If you have specific family out of town who will need that info to make accommodations before the invites go out, could you just send the link along to them?

I personally hate doing printed RSVP, but think some people have the reverse preference.  I barely ever deal with physical mail anymore, and I resent having to store/set it aside while we figure out whether we are going, and having to find a stamp. 

We are sending physical RSVP cards to family members, and providing an online option only for friends.
