Hmmm, this is good info. I actually assumed that the opposite would happen (most would reply electronically), probably because the only thing I mail out are boxes/packages and I do everything on the internet. And I assumed that it was a big commitment and people would put the invite aside and potentionally lose the RSVP card.
Maybe I should revise my RSVP card to include the entree selection. My fear was the the RSVP card would become to cluttered (attending or not, # of guest, 4 entree selections, 1 veg, and allergy notes) but maybe if I play arounnd with the layout I might be able to make something work.
