@Creasetul:  Does anyone know of a free wedding website where you can indicate on there the name, their guest name, number attending etc?

Weddingwire.com is awesome for this!  It allows you to list each person by household, so when one person in the household enters their name in the search box, the whole household is listed with each person able to be marked individually as attending or not.  They also have FANTASTIC tracking for the RSVP responses, etc.

I would also encourage you to add a phone number as an RSVP option.  This can help with people who are a bit nervous about doing it online.  Then you (or whoever’s number it is) can add them yourself directly on the website.

I know you asked for free options, but weddingwindow.com is even more flexible with RSVPs (you can add a specific number of unnamed guests and they can enter the guests’ names).  It’s not super expensive, but it’s not cheap, either…

We went with http://www.nearlyweds.com/ and they offer online RSVPs as well. We got one taker so far and it was nice as they emailed me the RSVP notification. It allows you to customize the message (e.g. “Please note any allergies…”) and also lets them put in the number of adults, children and infants. The field defaults are 0 so I assume most reasonable people will know that they need to edit the fields accordingly. I don’t think I’ve come across any solutions that will allow you to specify the number of seats allocated to a specific couple/family however, so if they add in uninvited guests, you still have to police that.

That being said, we still included the traditional RSVP card that was stamped in our invitation suite and all but one of the RSVPs coming back so far are via snail mail or hand-delivered (like when we see them in person), even from people that are very web-savvy.

The RSVP on theknot has a line for every guest. For example, if you are sending an invite to Mr. & Mrs. Mickey Mouse, you would type Mickey for the first name and Mouse for the last name. The next screen that pops up will have a line for both Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse with a Y/N to select if they are coming. Hope this helps!

I did the postcard and have gotten 3 back already. My dad asked if I had forgotten the envelope to mail it back in but he hadn’t turned it around.  He’s a guy so he doesn’t count as the norm. 🙂  Here’s what I did:
