I’m using Excel. I use it all day everyday at work so for me it’s like second nature and super easy. There is a guestlist feature on The Knot if you don’t like Excel.

I’m using the guest list tracker in the weddingwire.com planner.  You can do so much – even make seating charts and record when you sent invites to who.  It also lets you export lists to Excel (which you can use in a mail merge).

I know that the knot has a built in one, and you can print out PDFs of guest trackers from Russel+Hazel.

There are a lot of decent online ones that have been mentioned, but I have just used excel. I initially used an online guestlist creator and then it ate my list when I tried to find it a couple of weeks later. The lesson here is back stuff up-just a word of warning based on my own mini crisis 🙂

Honestly theknot.com worked really really well for us!

@eagle:  Yup same for us! Once it was time to print out the invite and mail them, I exported a spreadsheet of names and addresses from The Knot’s guest list tool, and I added a couple columns of info.

@MsVoyageur:  I love their export tool!  

I’m doing thank you cards this/next week and the gift list editor has been really helpful on the knot, too.

I use the template that theknot has and then it can convert into the guest list that you see on theknot.com

I’m using excel too, and it’s growing by the minute. I started with columns just for lastname, firstname, number of adults, number of children, address

Then it expanded to a checklist for people I’d sent a save the date to.

Then I added a column for “shower gift” and “shower thank you”

Now I’m adding a column for people I’ve sent invites to. Next will come rsvp no, rsvp yes, meal choice, wedding gift and wedding thank you!

I’m glad I’m using excel just because I can totally customize it. If you pick a pre-made site make sure you can add crazy amounts of columns and customize it!

I just use an excel sheet- but we do ours through google docs- which has been super helpful because both my Fiance and I can enter info into it. My mom also has access to it- which is going to be helpful when I need help chasing down RSVPs!
