We’ve seen this idea become more popular as clients approach letterpress wedding invitations with both budget and the environment in mind. Printing your reply information in the bottom left hand corner of your invitation is an acceptable alternative that can save you money. Reply cards are a relatively modern invention, so by placing reply information on the invitation itself, you are still being traditional. The wording you would use:
**In this case, guests should know to respond to whoever is hosting the wedding, using the return address written on the flap of the wedding invitation address**

If you are using a reception card as part of your wedding invitation suite, but still wish to forgo the reply card & reply envelope, then your r.s.v.p. information should go in the lower left hand corner of the reception card.
