I used the knot. It was really easy to use and set up

This is something that I’m looking into as well due to having all my side travelling from another country. I’d never even heard of wedding websites before joining here though. Following this thread for info 🙂

This is exactly what I’m doing. The back of my invitition will include a link to the site.  No RSVP card included.

I took hours to set up a wedding website on Weddingwire.com, and then when I actually went to play with the RSVP feature, it couldn’t do what I needed it to do.

A quick google search repeatedly turned up Withjoy.com.  I love it!  The site is easy to customize and the RSVP features are very powerful.  Just what I needed.  Highly recommend.

natasha0b :  I was a guest that rsvp’d through an email invite, so I wanted to add my 2 cents.

I definitely think that doing a proper invitation with a link to the webite is the way to go. my FH and I got an email invite to a wedding last year and it was a bit frustrating and confusing.

The bride did not bcc everyone on the email, and did not send each email indivisually, so everyone on the guest list of 160 people had everyone elses email. Annoying. Also; because it was a mass email, there was no way to know who was actually invited.

I did not know if my FH and myself were invited, or just him. The rsvp on the website allowed you to have up to 6 +1’s!!! Personally I found that confusing (though maybe because I was surpised at the invitation at all!)

So my reccomendation is jsut be very clear who you are inviting so there is no confusion or misunderstandings 🙂

we are using withjoy as well. We are very happy with it and the tech support is great. I wasn’t that impressed with The Knot. Withjoy is also free to keep private. We included the website and password (you can choose and set up for free) on our save the dates. It was easy to do and if you have questions there’s a chat that is super responsive. I am giving my guests the option to RSVP either through the website or through the stamped addressed RSVP cards included with our invitations.

I may be old fashioned but I’m not a fan of doing only an online RSVP. For starters, some of me guests are older and are unlikely to even check out the website, because quite frankly they don’t have to- all of the essential information will be snail mailed as part of our wedding invitiations. Consider if you have any non-tech savvy friends or relatives.

Using The Knot and LOVE it!  We put the link to the website on our Save-The-Date Cards – our invitations will accompany a small card that just has teh address to the reception venue and to RSVP on the site. So easy!

I’m planning on doing this. I used Wix! Extremely customizable and if you know how to do a little coding then you can do that on the back end. 

Mine will require a passcode to login to RSVP. There will be a guest list and they will need to query for their name. Also, my rehearsal dinner will only be visible to those who are on a special guest list that is only seen on the backend.
