I’m a graduate student who will be neck-deep in school while my invites go out and RSVPs come in. Mostly I will be able to go back through and better keep track of who’s coming and who isn’t.
I’d much rather have some electronic way of receiving RSVPs (e-mail or text message); I know that 99% of our guests will be able to do this–those who can’t will call and/or have already told us that they’ll be there no matter the date haha.
Is there a way that I can ask guests to text or email to RSVP? If so, how can I word it?

RSVP to [email protected]
So quite simply with no confusing language.

If you make a wedding website with Minted.com you can have your guests rsvp that way… Every time someone responds you get an email. I’m sure other wedding websites do that as well.
“To RSVP, please visit our wedding website at ________”

batgirl012 : Create a wedding website that will capture RSVPs for you. I recommend Joy App. com – it’s mobile friendly and will even let you ask your guests for music suggestions, dietary restrictions, etc. when they rsvp. Good luck! xoxo

We had a website through TheKnot. We had our guests RSVP there, and it was WONDERFUL. I only had to manually enter a handful of our guests. They were also able to select their meal choice, and TheKnot has an “Event Summary” section, so you know how many people RSVP’d and how many people you have for each meal choice, which made contacting the caterer with our final head count a breeze. With our invitations, we included this insert:

I agree with PPs who mentioned a wedding website. i’m using weddingwire to collect rsvps and I can even make the table arrangements in the app. It’s so easy.

Another vote for the Joy website/app

We’re doing email. Wedding websites aren’t a thing where I live, but I think either would be suitable for you.

batgirl012 : I’m using RSVPify. Best decision ever. There’s and app and it generates an email when someone rsvp’s. Guests just go on, type in their info, pick their food choice, and then you can export it all to an excel sheet. I’m a ft student and have ft employment and it was an awesome fit.

Of course you can do rsvp by email or text. Just say rsvp by x date to [email]/[phone].

I used Minted. It made getting any electronic RSVPs super easy and made a list for.
Personally, I would get annoyed with text messages so if you don’t want to do a website I’d create an e-mail specifically for people to rsvp for though I really don’t see how that’s any easier than throwing paper RSVPs into yes and no piles.

we did a text message rsvp. we just wrote “please rsvp via text to Sam on 0400XXXXXX”
my husband didn’t do much of the planning compared to me so it was his phone number and job to keep track of them.
