    Did anyone else use a postcard for your RSVP card? Will you post pictures? (I am needing some inspiration)

      I considered doing postcards for RSVP's, but my FI insisted it was tacky & that his sisters would surely comment on it. Funny how none of them actually RSVP's anyway!

      I did pocket fold invites, so I was just going to make my RSVP insert into a postcard by addressing the reverse side & sticking a stamp on it.

      Make sure you meet the US Postal requirements if you do this:

      You may think that your mailpiece is a "card," because it is a single sheet of paper. But to qualify for mailing at First-Class Mail card rates, a card must be:
      • Rectangular
      • At least 3-½ inches high x 5 inches long x .007 inch thick
      • No more than 4-¼ inches high x 6 inches long x .016 inches thick

      I did postcard Save the Dates and they turned out great.

        I also wanted to do them, but because our invites were on handmade paper it did not make sense. I think that they're super cute though...

          We did our for cheap (almost free) at VistaPrint. They aren't fancy, but they served their purpose!

            I am thinking about doing them to send out with our STD magnets to get a preliminary RSVP. I might change the back a bit.
            I made these on VistaPrint. I think right now 100 for FREE!

              I'm trying this out with my STD's. i sent 2 boarding passes per STD and pre-stamped the second one so that they can mail back as a prelim RSVP. I just mailed them last week and gave them until July 4th to respond (1year before the wedding).

                I haven't mailed mine out yet. Can you keep us posted on how the RSVPs come along? I'm wondering how many people are going to respond to them.

                  Of course! But I have to warn you, my family never RSVP's. But I am threatin the ones that I know will go by saying that I am only sending formal invites to those who respond! I am also having them rsvp via our email too.

                    We made 80 STD's to send out and included a postcard to give a tentative reply. But we got 40 of them mailed before my dad got sick and we stopped sending them until we decided to postpone the wedding. We gave people until the end of April to send them back (to beat the postal increase in May). So far we've gotten 22 back (9 yes and 12 no).
