Just thought I would share some advice. I took a leap of faith (after a lot of worry) about not sending out RSVP cards to all of our guests. We did send out RSVP cards to older guests.
On our invitations, we included the internet address to our wedding wesbite (which also happens to be where you RSVP). It’s awesome because I feel like guests can get most information off the invite, but additional information (all area hotel info, additional driving directions – one of the major highways surrounding the site is under construction, etc) from visiting the site. The rsvp link is very easy to find and we have already had 7 replies (sent invites out 2 days ago). Don’t you ever just feel like you are heading to a wedding with too little information?? I wanted to be sure to avoid that!
All in all – I highly recommend it! Its convienient for people who are experienced internet users, nice that they can reply right away and come back to edit their answer if their plans change.
We used a Google Doc (in the google drive) to do this form. If you have a gmail account this should be pretty easy to do. If you go to google drive and click on google documents you are already most of the way done. They have templates you can select – we chose the wedding one, not extremely fancy, but works for me! You can go in and edit as many times as you want, which we have taken advantage of.
In the RSVP Google Doc we included these questions for them to select or fill out: names, names of other guests attending, how many adults will be attending, how many children under the age of 10 will be attending, which portion of the wedding are you able to attend (ceremony, dinner, dancing, everything…times included in all answers), song request, meal selection, and email address to provide if they want updates on road construction as we get closer to the day of.
Best part is that it pulls all answers straight into an excel doc ‘look-a-like” page for you to view all answers.
Quick for guests and quick for you!
Consider using this! If unsure how to put together a google document – google how to use it! Some 5 minute video tutorial online explains it rather nicely!
