WHY AREN’T MY GUESTS RSVP?
We live in a super hectic world, with a million things fighting for our attention every moment of everyday. Think about your work schedule, and all the tasks you’ve had while planning your wedding, and social events you’ve committed too…… now think of that thing that you want to do, but keep putting off….
Trust me, I’m the first person to tell you that poor responders frustrate the crap out of me, BUT I’m also the person who will put the DSW 20% coupon on my fridge, promising that I’m going to get over there soon, and then next thing I know the deal expired over a month ago.
Wedding guests are normal people too. Of course they’re excited about your wedding! And YES they are super honored that you invited them, and I bet that their RSVP card is sitting on their counter ready to go in the mail, but maybe they ran out of stamps.
BUT, if you are an instant gratification lady, like me, then let’s come up with a game plan to make sending an RSVP simple and stamp free.
There are several ways for engaged couples to create online RSVP options….
- TheKnot.com – Have you created your wedding website? TheKnot.com is a prime example of a quick and easy way to create a special page for your wedding day, that also includes RSVP options.
- EventBrite.com – This is a FREE event website, that you can use to track your RSVP’s
- Facebook Events – Let’s face it, this is not the sexiest option, but it works AND most of your wedding guests our already on FB anyway.
Just because you’re offering an online option doesn’t mean you have to skip the process of having beautifully printed invitations created. It’s simply another way you can connect with your invited friends & family, to make sure you receive an accurate headcount.
