Instead of having an RSVP card, I will be having an insert with our contact information to RSVP. I was planning on inserting it in the envelope behind the invitation, but I’m a bit worried that people won’t see the insert. Am I just being bridal paranoid or is there a way to make sure that people actually see the insert?

I know if I received an invitation that didn’t have an RSVP I would look through everything anyways to find out how to RSVP so I think if you have an insert with RSVP info that people will see it.

I agree with the previous response — but would using a belly band or something similar to keep the pieces together in the envelope make you feel more comfortable?

I think the smaller inserts are supposed to go in front of the main (larger) invitation. I personally would put it on top o the invitation, and when people open the invite, they will remove that one and read the invite, and then go back to the smaller insert.

I agree with BeachBride…the "correct" way to do it is to put it on top of the invite. Why don’t you want to do rsvps? If you’re going to print an extra insert anyway, you might as well get them to send it back to you, so it’s easier to keep up with it all. IMO that is.

Soo, this is the traditional way, right? I’ve heard this. Traditionally you don’t include the rsvp card, and the people who rsvp send a letter to you saying they’re coming. Hmm, I’d like to know how this works out.
I was thinking of doing this.

Traditionally you just put RSVP on the bottom corner of the invite. Guests are supposed to know to send you a note to the return address. But a card with your email and phone number, etc. may also be helpful if you don’t mind getting responses through those means, and then — as others have said, just put it in front of the invite. Because the invite is bigger (I assume) your guests will still see it first thing when they open the envelope — the inserts are usually shoved down to the bottom.
You may get just as many repsonses through these means then by including a card and a stamped envelope. We got maybe half of our response back, so it honestly seems a waste to have included them.
