Planning a Hudson Valley wedding? Take the eco-chic approach and ask guests to RSVP via email on your invitation cards.

Love the idea of handwritten wedding invitations complete with swirling calligraphy and embossed paperwork? So do we. What you might not love, however, is collecting one RSVP after the next as return letters make their way to your mailbox. To skip the stress (and the piles of paper), make a point to include your email address on your wedding invites instead. Not only is it an easier way to keep track of responses, especially if you create a designated email address for your ceremony, but it’s also eco-friendly. Plus, your guests will love the convenience of sending a quick email to confirm that they’ll be there to help celebrate your big day.

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. If you have a dedicated wedding website with the option to RSVP directly online, you can also list the full website URL in this section for added convenience.

P.S. Want to take the next step toward a “green” ceremony? Send your invites via email, too.
