I used withjoy. I think it’s a newer option? I just liked that it looked different from all the others, and really liked the general aesthetic. 

Keep in mind, however, that we did not use any features like an RSVP system or anything like that. It was strictly somewhere to put a bunch of information for guests.

I use withjoy. It does the job. It’s easy to use – pre-defined templates, customise your RSVP questions, limit it to only guests on your guestlist to RSVP, plus one option (recently added), send email reminders to guests, print invites (I didn’t use this), easy to download guestlist to spreadsheet, shows counts of guests etc. Best thing, it’s free and no ads.

This was the first wedding website tested and stuck with it.

I used Riley and Grey. It isn’t the cheapest option – but I used to do web/graphic design for fun and I liked the look and features of theirs best. There are some rsvp customization issues that are lacking though. Basically – you can protect your website and have individuals log in and they will only see events they are invited to (so if they are invited to the rehearsal dinner, they see all of the info for that, but if they aren’t – it won’t be visbile). The problem I ran into was there was a family we invited to the wedding, but I only wanted the parents at the rehearsal dinner. There was no way for me to break up the family and say, I only want the kids to be able to rsvp to the wedding and not to the rehearsal dinner. Unless I had the kids tied to a separate email address that is. Anyways, still very sophisticated! And pretty 🙂

We used withjoy and it was simple and mostly effective. If you do use it for RSVP’s I would include the second option of having people email you their response. It was GREAT for tracking RSVPs for our younger guests, but some of my parents’ guests got confused haha. You can manually add in the people that RSVP by email so that you can still export the list from With Joy into a spreadsheet. 

HOWEVER keep in mind that if you use it for save the dates or invitations – the emails sent through the website will usually go to junk folders. We only used it for RSVPing & providing info, but mailed paper invitations and sent save the dates via personal email.

I made mine on Blogger and for RSVPs I added a sidebar ‘message me’ gadget (you can change the title to say RSVP here) and it goes straight to your email.

I am using minted. So far I really like it. It shows up well on a desktop and a phone which I appreciate. I haven’t used the RSVP feature yet but I have done some testing of it, and it works well.

I just started using AppyCouple and really like all the customizations! I wanted a website I could make private and be able to invite different guests to different events.  It comes with an app too so guests can upload pictures at the events.  If you do a google search you might be able to find a promo code for a discount.  I bought my own on godaddy custom domain (again, found a discount code) and their customer support helped me set up my address so that it goes to their site rather than my guests having to type out the appycouple url.
