I am debating between the two. I am really worried about the older guests not being able to navigate a computer well...although really that is just a few people that come to mind. I am also worried that if I have an online RSVP people are more likely to put it off and forget. And traditional RSVPs are probably fun to get in the mail. 

 

On the other hand, there is the whole added cost issue. 

 

What is everyone doing? Have people found that the online RSVP works well?

I am doing both! We will be sending RSVP cards in the mail for our older or non computer savvy guests and will use online RSVP for the rest of our guests.

So are you giving everyone the option of both or just picking and choosing?

We sent our save the dates out about 11 months before the wedding and we began to receive deposits shortly after that. At this point, I am sending out the invitations in about a month but already have a pretty good idea of who is actually going based on the rooming list,  so just using the RSVP on our website.

I just sent my electronic STD with website link out on Sunday for our June 2015 wedding. We are managing all RSVPs online, but really it is only my 2 grandmas on my invite list that aren't computer savvy. I figure if people aren't RSVPing as we get closer to the date then I will send something out in the mail, but I'm hoping not to have to. I'll cross check the online RSVP list with who my travel agent tells me has actually put a deposit down.

 

We're using Appy Couple for the website and people are actually downloading the app (even my dad) and we've gotten several RSVPs already! I'm pretty excited about that.

I used a wedding website only and no one had any issues using it -- even the older folk. I would do one or the other but not both as that may confuse people. From what I've been told doesn't matter how you have them RSVP you still get people who delay and or forget!

I decided to save on the stamps lol but ended up deciding on a pre travel letter so didn't save in the end

Website RSVP here. I made my booking deadline the same as my RSVP deadline so that helps me keep an eye on numbers too.... A week before the deadline I will send an email out to anyone who hasn't replied yet and remind them to RSVP.

I did same ^^^ RSVP and deposit deadlines were the same. And we sent a reminder email a week before which was very well received.

I am going with online RSVP as well, for this reason I spent an extensive amount of time on our wedding website. I liked the functionality of Wedding Wires personal website more options so your guests could RSVP to multiple events. For instance if you are doing the destination wedding and a AHR.

This may be an odd thought, but is it even necessary to do RSVPs?  After sending out the STDs and invites, people should be placing their deposits, and after the deadline date, wouldnt your travel agent be able to tell you how many have booked?   Just thinking out loud...
