Making an account is honestly one of the most annoying things I can think of haha. So I was trying to do anything for our guests to avoid it!
My Fiance wants to do 100% online, but I’m undecided. Our guest list will be somewhat small (100 max), so I was thinking we could order RSVP cards for maybe 10% of the list and send it to our more traditional family. It’s kind of a different dynamic, because my grandpa taught me how to use a computer – he is more cpu literate than my moms husband lol. But I think some people like it more traditional. SO we havent fully decided yet.
TBH one reason why i wanted to avoid traditional RSVP cards WAS for the stamps! Our stamps are like, $1 here now, and that’s only within the country. So that’s minimum $2 postage for each invite. I didn’t even want to spend $2 on the damn invite card LOL.
It is generally considered rude to not pre-stamp the RSVP cards, because then someone has to pay to RSVP. But I totally get you on the wasted postage lol.

yeah, every time I go to any site that wants me to make an account I’m like “k never mind, bye”
I feeeeeeeel that etiquette wise, if you provide a link to RSVP you wouldn’t NEED to put a stamp since you’re technically providing a way to RSVP? Idk. I need to not worry myself with decisions I’m nowhere near having to make just yet lol

I’m using wix.com and love it. They have beautiful backgrounds, you can customize it for mobile and RSVP through the site. No login necessary for guests!

Is there any way around account creation in joy?

I haven’t found a way. It’s a shame, becuase it’s a nice platform. I wish it would be create an account IF you want to enjoy the rest of it. But if you want to just RSVP its so difficult.

Same here – wedding wire. For the exact same feature. The guest list management is great. Also great that I can add them to a seating plan directly in the site. I’ve also got great feedback from guests. Having destination wedding…so have had to include a lot of stuff.
In terms of password protection. Weddingwire can do this also.
And you can customize the RSVPs to include different menus and that.
No matter what you decide and how tech savvy you are, ultimately you need the time to sit down and spend creating a memorable site. My fiance is usually the more patient and artistic one of us. But I did everything. He lost patience with a few of the other sites lol.
Good luck bee 🙂

Wix but I’m pretty techie so I wasnt looking for user friendly

I mean more user-friendly for the guests, but the all seem to be pretty standard in that regard. I’m not a developer by any means but I could probably navigate a wix…I just don’t know!
Honestly the worst part about EVERYTHING wedding related is that there are simply too many options lol

Hey! I know you already went with TheKnot & RSVPify, but Joy just released login-less RSVP. No more needing to sign up for an account to see your site or RSVP.
