RSVP by email/phone instead of by mail

Hi Everyone!Wasn't sure what board to post this on but I just wanted some insight. I'm doing my rsvp by email but i have alot of older family members attending that may not know how to email so i wanted to do email/ phone.So far this is the wording I have come up with for the email: We look forward to celebrating with you   Kindly respond via email to <insert email here>by the twenty-ninth of May two thousand and ten   Please include names and number of attendeesDoes anybody have any suggestions about how to add wording for phone RSVPs?Thanks so much!Ashe

    I'd put it directly above or below the email address.  They'll get it :)

    Haven't finalized it yet, but it'll likely be "Please RSVP at www.weddingwire.com/oursite by (date).  For assistance, contact (phone number)."I really, really want them to use the tool on the website, though, so I'm trying to make it clear that the phone should be a last resort.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284
