Wedding RSVP – Getting your wedding guest list together quickly

The date is set. The venue chosen. You’ve got your dress and your decor taken care of. It’s time to see who’s coming to the wedding.

RSVPs are a crucial part of wedding planning. Not just for budgetary purposes but it really makes you think about who you want to be present for your special day and where you draw the line. So, why is it so difficult to get people to respond? Simple. After the hundreds you spend in invitations, meal cards, rsvp cards, and then thank you cards and parting gifts, people seem to lose those little cards. They end up in the pile of mail on the kitchen table, or maybe locked in a drawer or glove compartment to respond to later and is eventually out of sight and out of mind. So, how can you get your RSVPs returned quickly, efficiently, and economically?

Social media and a wedding website is your answer. Platforms like Facebook and Google plus give you the ability to create event pages and invite the friends and family and track your RSVPs right on your screen without having to sift through paperwork and making a database. Sites like Weddingwire are also a great tool as they offer wedding websites that have apps and tools to help you get your RSVPs in order.

It’s user friendly, highly efficient, and lots of fun! Personalize your page with little tidbits about what your guests can expect at your wedding. Include pictures of theme ideas and some history on how you and your future spouse met to where you are today.

Technology grows everyday. Embrace it and get the most you can from it. It just could make wedding planner easier than before.
