How to Include Your Email On Wedding Invitation RSVP Cards

Whether you’re tech-savvy or eco-friendly (or both), here’s exactly how to include your email address on your wedding invitation RSVP cards


Here’s an interesting question that would not have been asked a decade ago. This bride intends to make good use of the technology that most of us use today when creating her invitations. Bonus: it’s also an eco-friendly way to receive RVSPs!

Dear Wedding Guru:
“I’m getting ready to put together my wedding invitations. What’s the best way to include the option of RSVPing via email in my response cards?” — Tech-Savvy Bride

Dear Tech-Savvy Bride:
On the bottom of your response card, try the following wording:

The favor of your reply is requested by [date written out in full]
via [your phone number]
or [your e-mail address]

This order tells guests that you prefer that they respond by phone and, if not, by email. If you prefer an email response first, simply put it above your phone number. If you prefer the traditional return mail RSVP, and simply stop after the date.
