Quite simply put, if you look at today's extended families and our friends scattered all over the globe, weddings have become weekend to three day long events. The last three weddings I was invited to were all weekend events.

The very first and obvious answer is to mention it on your 'Save the Date' mailers. These days it is quite acceptable for the modern bride to send out beautifully designed 'Save the Date' reminders via WhatsApp.

RSVPs don't have to be a headache, my online RSVP forms work perfectly whether you use paper or digital invitations. If an online RSVP form is the only reason that you want to start your wedding website, then do it!
