You’re definitely free to pay for someone to do this, however, I kept track of my RSVPs this way:

1) Google Voice – all you have to is sign up (free) and they will give you a phone number. I used this phone number and had it go directly to a voicemail message that I created for people to RSVP through. When someone leaves a message it emails me and I listened to the message to see who has RSVP’d. PM me if you’re interested in actually hearing what I put or if you want a step by step. 

2) Wedding Website: Most wedding websites (,, etc.,) will do RSVP tracking for you. Although most people put details about their wedding, you’re free to only set it up for RSVP purposes. Personally, I created my own website through blogger and used GoogleDocs to track online RSVPs.


ETA: It’s difficult for me to recommend either one because it’s quite hard for me to believe that one should PAY for someone to keep track of RSVPs. Choose whichever option you believe will be best. You have to determine if your guests are tech savvy so online would be better or if they aren’t, phone would be best.

I can see how if you had  many guests, it may be easier to keep track of them this way. However as a guest I would much prefer an online registration (if not the paper postcard) because I hate talking on the phone. Based on this info I’d go with option 1.

Option 1 sounds best to me as a guest. If I hear info on the phone, I will probably just forget.

We are using RSVP Services (.com), to take RSVPs over the phone and online.  So far so good!  We saved more on invitations than we paid for the service, and RSVPs have been coming in.  In a few weeks they are going to call everyone who hasn’t RSVPd.  I’ll post an update after they do that for me.

RSVP Services ( worked great for us.  Unless you’re trying to be super traditional, phone RSVP is the best way to go.  It was easier for us, and most people replyed really quick.  You can use their phone system to make reminder calls to peope who don’t rsvp.  I wouldn’t use online only.  All of our older guests called in.
