We are currently working on our guest list, but we don’t have a good way to keep track of who is invited with all of their info.
How are you bees tracking your guest list, making sure everyone gets an invite, entree, thank you card mailed, etc, etc, etc.?

I just discovered WeddingWire’s guest list tracker and I have to say that I’m sort of in love! It does all the things you mentioned and lets you set up a seating chart.

I made a spreadsheet on google docs (including names, addresses, RSVP information) and then “shared” it with my mom and sisters. Even though we all live in different states, we can all access the information at any time!

@Bluejuly21: I did this as well when FI and I were making the list.
I think I honestly might print out a sheet that has like guest name, rsvp, entree choice, etc. and write everyones name on the cards to keep track

@his chippymunk: I use weddingwire’s guest list tracker (which I LOVE by the way) but I also have a guest list spreadsheet that I created.

I made a big bad spreadsheet with names, addresses, number invited, number attending, what gift I received and the date I sent the thank-you. 🙂

I have a master spreadsheet with multiple tabs on it that reference each other.
The main tab has the guest list if we were unlimited and the different lists that everyone is on and their addresses.
Based on the guest list the other tabs were calculated based on list on the master tab:
- Save the Dates List
- Shower (sent to MOH) with a column for gift given and a column for thank you note sent
- Final Guest List with a column for the number on RSVP card in case someone messes up thier name, gift given and thank you note sent
- RSVP tab with response, food choice and table assigned
I have another tab where I have the proposed seating chart shall everyone come. Which I’m pretty sure that not everyone will come.
PS – I’m a programmer. Can you tell?

I loved my spreadsheet. I used it for everything including figuring out the table numbers. I had their names/address to mail merge for STD labels, number of people per invitation, how many yes/no’s. Then I had all my equations for percent of guests RSVP’d, percent saying yes, etc. Also I used it to track special meal requests and what gifts we received.

I’ve been using theknot to track my guest list. I have the option to RSVP on the website, which automatically links it to my version of the guest list and updates the list for me. It’s pretty good. I like their planning tools, not so muhc their forums

I’m going to use google docs. Then I can access it anywhere on my phone, iPad, computer, work, etc. It’s great.
