@wabanzi:  I made mine on theknot.com  I think you can do the online RSVP, not sure about the emails, but there’s definitely spots for all the other info 🙂

I’ve been using Wedding Wire. Online RSVP’s will be used when the time comes. There’s no email function, we just have a separate email on Gmail with the same name as our website. Tons of options, ability to take away or add more links to the side menu to pull up separate pages. Ability to add music. And it has an adorable little welcome page.

@wabanzi:  It’s also very handy if you go to a bridal expo and get the massive amounts of spam email they send. My regular email account already gets cluttered enough.

If you want to utilize online RSVPs do not use theknot. I used them and didn’t check this feature until way too late. I’m not the best at technology but I’m also not totally clueless. Their RSVP set up is terrible. I thought I was just being incredibly stupid at first so I looked up directions and reviews and it seems as though most people don’t like it. The rest of the site is fine but we ended up not doing online RSVPs because of the way it was set up.

I used the knot and had no RSVP problems whatsoever (we ONLY did online RSVPs) so I don’t know what PP is talking about, I’m sorry she had a problem! I can’t speak to any other site, we didn’t look at anything else or do any research on it, just went with the first thing I saw. I thought their RSVP set up was awesome, it made it so people couldn’t just add random people, which I loved, and everybody except a couple foreign relatives could figure it out (the foreign relatives who didn’t speak English well simply called us and told us they were coming and their food preference and we entered it into the site for them, it was so no big deal)

I am using Project Wedding; only one guest had an RSVP issue and that was because I was a dolt and forgot to enter her name in the RSVP list (only people with their names in it can RSVP unless you add a blank “guest” line to their RSVP  entry, which they can fill out). We also did online-only RSVP, with fiance’s phone # on the invitation to call if you had trouble.

I like it well enough. I don’t think it has the ’email your guest list’ function you seek, but that might have to do with the fact that we didn’t enter email addresses of our guests or ask them to.

I think their templates are pretty. The map function is awesome, and the standard pages are plenty for a basic site — we didn’t want a dozen different bio pages or anything. Customizable text formatting and some layout customization.

Weddingwire.com is working great for me! My friend used it for her RSVP’s last year and it came highly reccommended.
