@prahajess:  It’s according to how it works; I’m sure each site is different. My sister used theknot, so I’m using it to. You have to enter the names of the people who are invited, on your guest list, or they are not added to the tally. If everyone gets a +1, you can do something like John Smith and Guest Smith, if you don’t know their names. Sis wrote in the titlebox  “use your name as written on the invitation,” since that was what was entered on the guestlist function. I.e. James Jones and not Jim Jones, or it won’t go into the tally. If the guest tries to enter Jim Jones, he’ll get an error message but not refuse his entry; it will still go through in an e-mail.

@PABride:  Just a warning, I’ve read from a ton of other brides that the RSVPs glitched. Just wanted to warn you in case you didn’t read that! 🙂

My sister’s didn’t have glitches (250+ invited), except for the people who didn’t enter their names as written on the invitation. They came through on the confirmation e-mails, and she clicked them as attending, on the guestlist. She then was able to move the attending guests names around on the template of tables, in the ballroom, which is another function. She had everyone RSVP online 10 days before the due date, except for one couple, which I think is great.            We’re only inviting half as many guests; I’m using theknot website, but guests will RSVP to our wedding e-mail address, and then I’ll click as attending their names, on our knot guestlist, to use as a tally and for the table layout template.
