    Hi everyone,

    I'm making a little mock up of an invite just to get some idea's and I'm really struggling with the wording of some parts.... especially bits like the R.S.V.P

    We weren't planning on putting R.S.V.P cards in with the invites and just letting people send us their own or let us know in other ways, I was thinking ''please R.S.V.P by 18th May 2015 and let us know any dietary requirements.'' followed by our contact details.... however after seeing so many brides moan about people not R.S.V.P-ing are we opening ourselves up there for people to not reply and when we chase them say ''Oh well I have no dietary requirements so I didn't think I needed to get in touch''?

    have you got a wedding website which has rsvp bits on it?

    What we have done is include an insert which has information about our website, it states there is a "have your say" page, lift sharing & rsvp with menu details. The menu details page itself has 2 options, a veggie option or a meat option. it also has a section for them to contact us regarding any other dietary requirement they may have if they have any. so hopefully those that want to know what they will be eating will have a look at the website & RSVP whilst they are there.

    I think this is a good option, the rsvp's themselves are as follows:

    RSVP.jpeg


    Which means that they can be used for both day & evening invites. I got 125 of them for only £2.88 inc postage

    We thought about a wedding website, but can't seem to find one we like that fits in with our theme

    i have posted a link on your wall hun, they have different styles you can chose from, its not a huge selection however, you can change the colours of the pages i think & password protect each page with different passwords if you require it. they also appear to have a better range of pages to use ie, lift sharing, rsvp, faq, contact us etc... take a look, it might be worth it hun... i have also put a link to our website but alot of it is password protected

    We have a website (from Katya's description of features I have a feeling we've gone with the same company). I didn't put a date on our invites to RSVP by because we knew we would be sending out the invites in 3 stages: ceremony, ceremony upgrades if people decline and evening invites. BIG mistake!! Whenever I get an invite I like to RSVP immediately but apparently my entire family feel differently so when my Mum called me yesterday I told her that everyone has until the end of this month to RSVP before its assumed they're not coming and the spaces are given to others... there's been a lot of activity on the website since that phone call and my Aunt called me about 20 minutes later to say she'd rather RSVP in writing than on the website and she's having a card made especially but it won't be ready for a few days and she's sorry for the delay.
    You don't need t have RSVP cards but definitely give people a deadline for getting back to you.

    Yep its the same one! It was when you said about the lift sharing feature that made me think it might have been the same place.

    I love the website btw ladies.... thank you again.

    Haven't been off it all night changing bits about ect. :)

    I love how it pulls up all the nearby hotels for you and how it sorts directions for you as well. Saves so much work in the long run and means my invites can look a lot neater.

    I've also set up a different gift-list page on it as we're not having a gift-list but I've put the honeymoon fund poem on it

    Not only does it pull up all the nearby hotels but your guests can actually book their rooms via your website as well so its a one-stop-shop for them when they RSVP (which will hopefully be before your deadline).

    lol its annoying though, surely seeing as it has it set up for utomatically placing the nearest first, surely when you add your own hotel it should also place that in order of distance too?! it didnt with mine so i had to go through google maps to figure the distances between them all.

    Mine did the same, that's why I rated them, with mine being 10 the next closest 9 etc. only took 2 mins so wasn't too bad for a free programme
