RSVP online? AND have option for mailing response?
If I sent you an invitation with an option to mail back a response or go online, would that be ok? Or is it weird/tacky?

It would be the traditional
M______________
___ regretfully declines
___ joyfully accepts

and then it would say

You may also RSVP via our wedding website
www.weddingwebsite.com


(I just thought some people would be more likely to respond if given the option to do so online, but my grandmother says old people want to RSVP in the mail) lol

I think it's perfectly reasonable. The way I see it, most people would rather just get on their computer and rsvp that way, but there's always going to be a few people who either don't know how or don't want to do it online.

Will they need to tell you a meal choice too or is that not an issue?

I'm still debating whether to get stamps for all of my RSVP envelopes since I really do think that most people will just RSVP online.

That's what ours said. We only put stamps on the ones we sent to people who don't have internet access and people in my grandparents' generation. Everyone else had the choice to reply online or use their own stamp. No one complained about this.

We're planning on doing the RSVP on our website, email, or phone. We figured it'd be easier that way.

Mines have the option of mail, WW website, or I have a phone# through Google Voice which is free. I will probably stamp those who I feel aren't internet savy like my grandmothers siblings.

We also did both. Surprisingly most people returned the card, even those who are very internet savvy.

FYI- A friend on mine did online RSVPs. Less that 1/3 of the people who showed up actually RSVPd! It was a disaster. I'd tell you to avoid phone/email RSVPs like the plague! The worst part about RSVPs is tracking them. If people call you, you are likely to forget what they tell you, and it opens it up to people bringing guests because they'll call and expect you to say it's okay.

A few huge tips:
Put names in the RSVP cards, and number of seats reserved for them. If they mail it in, it doesn't matter. But people RSVPing online will know what name to enter.

I only have the option of RSVPing on my website - EXCEPT for those people I know are computer illiterate, like my grandmothers, I am including an RSVP card and a little handwritten note to let them know to ignore the website as well as to give them more information that is only on the website.

We're doing our RSVPs via our WW website And a free voicemail through Google voice. Simple and inexpensive. For the handful of elders FH and I are going to just call them. Lol

We gave people the option of both. It's not always convenient for people to mail but not everyone ( grandparents, great aunts and uncles) have internet access.
