Wedding RSVP Cards and How to Use Them

Using wedding RSVP cards in your invitations is an extra expense that is not necessary unless you plan on having a sit down reception.  It is a rule to expect about 80% of your guests when planning.  

I don't know about you, but every event that I have ever tried to have, including birthday and holiday parties, do not ever get responses.  Lots of friends just assume you know they are coming, and others wait until last minute to let you know anyway.


So, save your money by not using them!


If you have to have them, you can make your own. Simply use postcard stock paper at most print shops, Wal Mart or any office supply store.  Be sure to get those that fit in a regular size small envelope and send out both the envelope, already addressed, and the RSVP cards. You can also choose to save by sending self addressed and stamped post cards.  This makes it much more convenient for the guests to send them back.  If possible, send self addressed stamped envelopes.  It is also a good idea to print a phone number on the cards.

It's your call, but unless a pretty accurate headcount or a meal reservation needs to be made, I would advise you NOT to spend your money or waste your time with RSVP requests.
