We are having a small brunch wedding with approximately 60 people next summer. Instead of having a return card RSVP, I would like to have the information on our invites that lists our wedding website where people can RSVP As well as see all of our other wedding information.
Can anyone think of any pros or cons for this idea? Everyone that we are inviting are all computer savvy. I’m also wondering if anyone has Responded to a wedding on a website Before.
thank you so much!

@Soon2BMrsG2014: We did online RSVPs and it worked great for us! No cons here from me. 🙂

The only con for us with that option was the abscense of little reply envelopes in the mail! We REALLY felt like we wanted to see them all (because it would make us happy) and so we’re doing mail RSVP’s.
I think it’s fine to do them online! It’s going to be the same story anyway… gotta track down those non-repliers sooner or later.
I’d suggest maybe even having a QR code to the RSVP website in your invitations, so if anyone has a smart phone they can just go right there when they’re ready. We did it for our save the dates and it was really fun!

We are giving both options. Reply cards with all invites but an insert listing the wedding website and mentioning the option to RSVP online there. Best of both worlds and I’m interested to see which will be used more.

Personally, I hate online RSVPs. I forget to respond to them. I can leave the response set on the counter until I respond as a reminder, so it triggers me to respond faster.
FWIW, I’m on a computer all day for work, and have a smartphone. I’m not technologically illiterate, I just really don’t like online RSVPs.

It was hard enough getting people to throw a little envelope in the mail! I also liked having the cards to sort when I was going through for addresses, seating charts, etc.

We did the online RSVP and had a hard time getting replies. Most people woould tell us and consider that sufficient… Which was a little annoying because when I would sit down to plan I would have to rack my brain. (Did so-and-so talk to me? Was that a definite answer? It sounded like a maybe.)
But I think lots of my relatives would have been equally difficult with mailed RSVPs anyways. Our friends were mostly pretty good with it. I would do it again because it was easy and free. I would like very much if we were invited to a wedding and the couple did this. It would be so much easier for me to go online than to mail something.
