Well, because we decided to move up our date, we are just now getting ready to send out our actual invitations.
Due to the shorter time frame, we went and got a print-your-own kit. The invites are cute, nothing really fancy. The difference for us was that we could create them to be what we want. We included some of our personalities into them.
For the wedding website, we actually posted it on Facebook first. (Just got it running a couple of days ago).
With the invitations, we put a snippet on our RSVP card… it’s a double printed inside card. The top says “We kindly request your response on or before March 12th, 2012.”
Then, under it, center texted, bold and in a different font:
“Technology Savvy? Feel free to RSVP via the internet!”
Underneath, we included our wedding website in bold.
Then, on our directions insert, we put the information to the wedding ceremony meet-up location. Underneath, we put:
Are you wondering…
where to stay? what to do in town? what’s on the menu? who are these people?
“Our website address”
We are hoping that our tactic of cute and somewhat witty wording will get people to read and chuckle… then use the website.
We also used humorous traditional RSVP wording hoping to illicit more RSVP responses in the timely manner.
I will keep all posted as to how my theory works 🙂
