Hi all


So I spent quite a bit of time creating our beautiful website using the knot and was thinking of having people RSVP online. I’m planning on ordering my cards (flat one) from vista print and have separate RSVP card with our website to do RSVP online.Do you think I should provide option RSVP by both options mail Or online in Website? If I do provide options and not provide stamp is this bad?
Has anyone ordered separates card for RSVP on website before? If you have sample please send me. I don’t have a good specific meal option it’s all the same.Also for the knot RSVP online do I have to enter all names in advance or they just go and enter.

    Paper vs RSVP online 3Paper vs RSVP online 4 This is how i did our invites instead of an email put your webpage info. I have had family call us as well. I used business cards for the rsvp card. Hope this helps!

    I just typed the guest names directly into the guest list manager. I think you can do it that way too though by uploading an excel file. Either way, you still have to type everyone’s names at some point so whatever you prefer for organization.

    We’re doing online rsvp’s through our knot website. If any of the older people can’t figure it out they know how to get a hold of us or one of our parents to rsvp lol

    We're mailing ours out with our invitations and have a QR code for digital RSVP. It hooks up to our wedding website on here.

    Im not doing mailing back RSVP cards. they can submit online or they can call/text. it saves the hassle plus you will have to pay for all the stamps back as well. my older aunts and uncles all have computers and cell phones lol

    We did mail-in cards, but I did have people text/email/message me that they sent it in/were or were not attending as well.

    I know more people are having RSVPs online/email/phone and it works out. Maybe have a mail-in option for older/more traditional guests

    What we did was just on the back of the invitation we gave them a few options but none that relied on snail mail (especially because 6 months prior we had a postal strike, as well as part of my current job includes going through return mail and we don't get return mail back until roughly a month after it was sent out...).

    Here's what we put:

    Please RSVP to the bride (me) by _____date via email @myemail or by call/text.

    For the younger generation such as myself (22) there were a lot of texts sent. The middle age people tended to email me, and the older grandparent generation called me. That way there was something for everyone!

    So are you printing RSVP cards and send some with website and some with mailing? Which website did you use for RSVP ? Was it the knot.

    You Know your guests best; whatever you think would be good to accommodate them. We’re sending both because we do have old fashioned guests who would prefer to send it back via postage but we also have international guests where sending it back physically is more difficult. Both work just as well.

    I think having both options would be confusing, and some people might RSVP twice.


    Unless you have a lot of elderly relatives who aren't internet savvy I would stick with digital RSVPs.
