RSVP Etiquette

Recommended Posts

I think that sounds fine. It doesn't sound rude at all.


I also wanted to go the website RSVP route but FH and my parents are against it because they think that a lot of people don't have computers, internet, etc. Besides grandparents and a great aunt everyone has access to a computer (really now, it's not like it's 1990 or something!). I told them we could just send RSVPs to the few people who aren't computer literate but they won't budge! Clicking a button just seems so much easier than remembering to mail something!

I totally agree! All of our guests have access to email (in fact most on their phones). We invited 36 people and so far, 2 responses but it's early on. We aren't getting married until July 4th, although we did put that we requested their rsvp by feb. 1st. The great thing about the website is that you can send a "friendly" reminder to all your guest let's say 60 days before rsvp is due, then again 30 days before rsvp. I'm thinking about doing this just to keep the rsvp on their minds. After the "due" date is passed I will send out another email. I mean, the thing is, I am paying for our wedding myself and it's a huge financial under taking (fiance is helping a bit but majority is me) and I'm sorry but if you think about paying for a reception for 36 people and then all the oot bags, ceremony stuff, reception gifts/favors it's a lot to be responsible and I want PLENTY of notice so I know how many "things" to buy. I've decided it isn't rude on my part to ask for an rsvp so early. Ask for what you want! :)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
