My FI made our wedding website where in order to RSVP they have to type in their speicial code and it only populates the names of those ACTUALLY invited, they can click the little box next to their name(s) to RSVP or to decline. I love his genuis.
How are you preventing guests from adding another guest or two?

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
If I could re-do my RSVP cards I would:
a) Include the number invited
b) Only put a kids meal option on those who are invited with their kids…

I’m clearly putting on the response cards X seats reserved. However… If you read the other recent post about people bringing 18 guests, I guess some people just are oblivious.

I’ve read some Bee put “we have X number of seat reserved for you..” etc.

@Miss T-Rex: I love the way your fiance is doing that. DH is a programmer/web developer too, and if we did have any guests when we got married, that’s probably how we would’ve done it.

@Miss T-Rex: With our families, this wouldn’t have worked. They completely ignored RSVP protocol and just called either my MIL or my mom. Ugh. lol. I was one of the ones who had DH’s aunt RSVP for her, her husband, her four grown kids, their spouses, and their children. This with two familes on my husband’s side. And then I had people who completely did not RSVP and they were like…”why would WE have to RSVP? You should know we’re coming.” Ugh. lol

We’re doing the RSVP function, on our wedding.com, where you have to enter the names of people who are invited. I’ll let you know how it works. We’re also taking oral, phone-ins, text, etc. RSVPS and will put them into ourwedding ourselves. We’re crossing our fingers on this.

I didn’t have anyone try to add extra guests. I had very formal invitations, used both inner and outer envelopes, and had a professional calligrapher address all of the invitations in a very formal manner. It appears to have worked well with my guests.
