    Has anyone dealt with this? We have family in Mexico and Nicaragua, how do I provide Pre-postage for these response cards? I know that using our website as a form of RSVP is an option, but is there another method of pre-paying postage?

      We did post card RSVPS and sent a bunch to Canada & Trinidad. I took one to the post office & asked them what I'd need to send it to Trinidad, and to Canada. They gave me what I needed (Trinidad was like 80 cents or something!). Just needed to add the airmal sticker to them as well as the stamp.

        I ran into this problem too.. So, instead of doing RSVP cards I put
        RSVP
        Please call or email before April 1st 2008 at:
        Phone number
        email address

        I know it's a bit untraditional... But hey so am I. And it was going to be a pain trying to figure out postage :)

          WOW! ugh, so frustrating! I hate to say but Hans fam will most likely not attend the wedding. I feel like I don't want to waste a stamps (or invites) since I know they are not going to go. My family in Mexico is going, so I want to provide them with a response card. I know, that sounds so mean.

            Just add in like I said for his family... if they want to go they can call or email. If they can't afford to call they really can't afford to go lol

              hah I actually put Canadian postage on my invites going to the US & UK and didn't even think about it until after they were in the mail

              everyone mailed them back though and no one had any problems!

                my FI has friends all over the world. we just left it blank b/c we didn't have a way to provide a New Zealand, UK, BVI, Australia, Dubai....stamps. They have either emailed or just bought their country's own stamp. it hasn't been a problem. :)

                  Thanks ladies! I guess I'll take them to the post office and see what they say.

                      I would send with the postage. It really is not that exspensive and I will show that you care enough to not have your friends and family that live in another country by their own. You may not get a reply if they have to take the time to get the stamp on their own.
