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!
Believe me this is the one thing that will make your life a lot easier. My Elegant Wedding Website Package is perfect for this. You can even use a digital RSVP form if you are using traditional paper invitations.
You will thank yourself for this one. The great thing about online RSVP forms is the amount of questions you can ask your guests. Are they joining you for brunch the day after, what song would they like to hear on the playlist, allergies?
It would be impossible to fit everything in on your invitation or RSVP card and all this ends up in one convenient place in your email programme. I usually suggest that my clients create a new mailbox where all emails with the subject line Wedding RSVP will be automatically moved to.
I will also provide you with a spreadsheet of all your replies for easy reference as soon as your RSVP date expired.
Included in the RSVP service is the option to send out a reminder closer to the RSVP cut off date or to notify your guests of any last minute updates or changes to the wedding programme.
Some interesting numbers to keep in mind when you start thinking of when to send out your RSVP forms:
- 80% of guests will reply in the first 8 weeks of receiving their invitaions.
- 83% of your guests will reply YES to your invite.
- The third week after the invitation was send out is the most popular time to reply.
Horst Dieter Creative Concepts also provides you with the option to place your RSVP form in a password protected area if you prefer to only allow your invited guests to see it.
