Hm. That’s interesting. I never thought of that.

I do have an online RSVP if people so choose (they still all got a stamped envelope and RSVP card). So far only about 6 people have used it, and I know they’ll all come.

I’d be interested in others answers as well though!

This is an interesting thought. I would hope no one would rsvp and then flake just because they rsvped online.

Maybe, but I still think it takes some effort to log onto the website, find where to rsvp and go through whatever steps this certain website has in order to RSVP. On my wedding website, they have to log on, select “RSVP” from the list of pages, type in the name on their invitation, select what people in their party will be coming, and their meal choice and submit it.

I don’t know what other sites are like though. So I dunno!

i never thought of that, but i really don’t think so – like ThePrincessMaggie said, it’s still “work” to rsvp online and the people who’ve done so so far have all been serious about coming. i think also because it’s a fairly new idea (online vs mail), that they’d remember… what the site looked like and your pictures and stuff. like i have an option on mine under the names and number attending that says “Do you like to have fun?” and the only option you can check is “why yes, i love to have fun!”. makes it kinda memorable as opposed to a generic response card for instance.

You’d almost think that logging into the website, finding the rsvp section, filling it all out and leaving a “comment” and then submitting it, is more work than making a check mark and dropping it in the mailbox the next time you pick up your mail!

I don’t think so. I am doing online rsvps and they are taking there time coming in, to me that means thought. Also they have the formal invite to remind them, it isn’t like the invite is send through and e-mail, they click a link, and click yes without thinking. I can tell you after my wedding if there are no shows, but I doubt any would be due to the fact that they rsvpd online. We only invited 60 people and so far have 34 yes and 1 no.
