sunshadebride :  My wedding is far in advance but we are doing a combo of regular mailed RSVP’s and allowing an option to RSVP online also. 

I would recommend removing it after you have to have your final counts in. Anyone after that point that wants to RSVP should contact you directly! That’s what we’re planning on doing at least:)

sunshadebride :  we’re doing online-only RSVPs as well, and i never thought to disable the RSVP! hmm…things to think about. here’s something that comes to mind as to why you might not want to disable it: if people try to change their RSVP way after it’s too late, at least you KNOW and you’ll be able to then contact them directly to let them know that unfortunately you won’t be able to accommodate them (last min additions). in the even that someone has to decline last min, it’s also better to have that information in case it means you want to change around seating assignments or something.

basically, it seems that the kind of people who think they can RSVP last min, are also the kind of people to just show up/not show up without ANY notice, so i dont think that disabling the RSVP feature will actually prevent that behavior – but if you keep it enabled, MAYBE you’ll at least have a heads up of the last min people so you can contact them appropriately. just my two cents (:

Yes, our RSVPs “closed” after the deadline. That way if anyone wants to make any changes, they’ll have to actually contact you.
