Hi!
Are you guys including RSVP cards in your invites to mail back or utilizing an online system?
We are using The Knot for our wedding website, but I haven’t figured out how to upload our gystlist yet!Any tips would be appreciated Smiley smile Would love to be able to do this online somehow.
Thanks!!

    Yes! In my opinion the knot has a better more detailed checklist and they have better, more detailed, and nice looking templates! You can list your registry through there site as well! So easy and clear to use.

    I find wedding wire to have lots of tech issues which Im not comfortable with when it comes to creating and receiving guests RSVPs I only use wedding wire for my vendors checklist and the community site. This community part of wedding wire is incredible. Everyone is so helpful and kind.

    I’m using the knot as well!
    I manually added each guest into the site under guest list.

    We did paper save the dates. We’re doing paper invitations and leaving our website at the bottom telling guests that is where they RSVP and the date they need to RSVP by. So far I’ve had no issues our date is in September 2022 and I have had lots of people already RSVP online. I also really enjoyed creating our website on the knot to personalize it and make it fun!!
    Here is my website if you’d like to look! theknot.com/alyxandjustin2022


    In my opinion it’s a waste of paper and money to have details cards and rsvp cards in the invitations I just have one card with all the info and rsvp online. People are just going to throw it out anyway! Maybe your grandma or parents will keep it but most people throw it out! Which is your hard earned money!

    We are thinking of sending our Wedding Invites by mail and have a link on there for guests to RSVP online. I'm curious why people are using other websites like theknot.com or withjoy.com to make their website instead of Wedding Wire. Do they have better tools or prettier templates?

    We are planning to include an RSVP card that has contact information for my fiancee (who is handling the RSVPs). The RSVP card includes both email and texting contact info so it makes it easier for guests to reach us and eliminates the chance of a card being lost in the mail.

    I opted the choice of email for RSVP since I didn't go the website direction. I know one cousin who used greenvelope and they have a RSVP and you can add your guest list on there too.

    We're going completely digital with our save the dates + invites. With the rising cost of postage and the risk of them getting lost in the mail, we thought digital better suited us. We're using Mail Chimp for our emails and Squarespace for our website. I believe theKnot does have an option where you can upload your guest list from an excel sheet - it's a pretty basic feature that all wedding website builders have, so just click around and you should be able to find it. I do like the idea of paper invitations though haha

    Believe it or not we have family that don't own a computer or have internet. So for the older folks, we are sending them the STD cards and an invitation. For the rest we are sending our STD cards with a link for our online RSVP.

    Ahh awesome! I’m so glad to hear The Knot’s RSVP system worked well. Thanks for letting me know!
    Also I agree with you on the eco friendly part!

    We decided not to waste paper for our wedding. Being eco conscious is important to us. We did all our invites and save the dates electronically through the knot and have our RSVPs through there as well. You can upload an excel sheet with your info for your guests. We created a fake one to test to send to our emails and our parents to see what it would look like before we sent things out. It worked out great!

    I am doing the same as well sending out paper invites. some people enjoy them as a keepsake.

    I do however have my website available for my guests in case there's any questions or concerns though.

    So when I sent our STD, I included a little card that had a QR code to our wedding website - should anyone want to RSVP sooner - I plan on sending digital invites which would also have a link to the wedding website.

    Personally, I looked into The Knot but wasn't a fan so I'm sticking with WW for our website/RSVPing. My bestie used it for her wedding too (which I helped her with) so Im pretty comfortable with this site.

    We used this website to receive our RSVP that gets sent to us by email, also where they confirm their meal options as we had seated dinner and two options.

    We included a little card with our invites that directs guests to RSVP on our website. IMO it's much easier to keep track of!

    I did it online. Even all the elders in our families are connected so it just made sense for us. This way, no one can lose any information if a card gets lost.

    I totally get it!

    To us, we rely on the internet too much these days, it's more meaningful when something comes in the mail

    My fiance and I are including RSVP cards with our invites. We're not using any form of online systems for our wedding. Something about getting a physical piece of paper in the mail these days is special to some people.
