I think you need to give it time, the invites have only been out just over a week. 

We used online RSVPs through our wedding wire site and had no problems. Some did RSVP via phone or email, but most did it through the website with no problems.

We wanted to, but after much debate, we decided to have regular RSVP cards, and on our details enclosure card, we have the website and a note on the RSVP that they can reply either via mail or website.  I’m guessing it’ll be 70-30 in favor of paper.

We decided to forego paper RSVPs and gave guests a website/email/phone option on the invitation.  So far it has been about 50/50 website and email with a couple of phone calls.  We used wedding wire and haven’t had any problems.  Anyone who hasn’t responded by the cutoff will be getting a phone call the following week.

It is unfortunate that your website is creating such problems, but I wouldn’t worry about it too much yet.

We decided to forego paper RSVPs, but we are offering online and phone options to RSVP. I set up a voicemail box through Google so guests can just leave a message.

We Eloped to a Destination Wedding… which was proceeded by a Pre-Wedding Trip, and followed by a fabulous Honeymoon.  While we were gone (5 Weeks) we sent out Invites for our Back Home Reception.  Because of the short turn around time, and not being home, we used a website for our RSVP Replies… it worked fine (as in functioned well).

BUT that isn’t to say we had issues… a lot of folks just didn’t have the courtesy to reply… when I got home, I had to chase people down (and it doesn’t have anything to do with age… I was hunting down replies from folks 25 to 75… it is just modern society… where people don’t seem to be POLITE ENOUGH to get that they have to reply.  It is a HUGE headache, the biggest of my Wedding, and seems to also be the largest for a great many Brides)

Hang in there… it’ll soon be over.

And then you can get on with the good stuff.

We are doing online rsvp and have had our invites out for over a month and have only gotten 60/140 back. One of my aunts said, ” Oh, you know I’m coming. Do I have to RSVP?”. Our wedding party hasn’t even RSVP’Ed yet

We’re doing both, just to keep everything easier. I haven’t sent out the invites yet and I’ve already had people RSVP online, haha.

Yes. and since most of our friends and family are tech savy— we thought this would be the best option for faster RSVP’s. We sent real paper invites to older family members who do are not so tech savy. 

We created a secret facebook invite (i dont care if it’s taky) with a link to our wedding website. we also let them know we need them to go to the website to RSVP, and choose their meal choices. 

well, wouldnt you know- hardly anyone read the damn invite. they used FB to RSVP. only a couple went to the site. 

I  had to post on there like 3 or 4 times “reminding ” people of the instructions, and then they finally got it. seriously. I would have rather sent all paper ones. such a flippin’ hassle.

This makes me seriously regret doing the online honeymoon registry, now that I know NO ONE reads anything important. so irritating.
