@msmaddox: We used online RSVP on a free wedding website on mywedding.com. I liked that option over email because it automatically created a spreadsheet with the guest names, # of people in their party, their response and their meal choices. I then used the spreadsheet for calculating final numbers for vendors, seating charts, and a thank you note list.

@msmaddox:  Of course it’s ok. The year is 2013.

But make sure there is some way other than email to RSVP, for the sake of older guests. Even a phone number can be a good alternative.

We also did online RSVP. I made a google doc and then used tiny URL to shorten the URL, and as a PP said, add your phone number so guests have a secondary option!

We did online RSVP as well! Our guests are all over the world and I did not trust all the RSVPs to make their way back to us (not to mention wanting the postage savings!). We also put a phone number on there. The front of the RSVP card had the deadline and the website address and the back said “If you do not have access to a computer, please call one of the following to RSVP” and then listed a contact and phone number in each country.

It’s fine, but I don’t trust email- it seems like some of them get lost in cyberspace forver. I think using the website will guarantee that you receive all of the RSVPS, but I agree you need to add a phone number.

@msmaddox:  We did this (with an added phone number) and it worked really well.  We actually had no RSVPs to chase down, which was awesome!

We did an online RSVP as it was much easier. We also gave our address so that older guests could also respond if they didn’t know how to work the website. We got some really cute acceptance cards that way Smile
