    If technology can help save money on STD/Invitations/RSVP for the wedding, most guests will understand and not get offended by that. The money saved can be put towards food/drinks and that's definitely a better use of the budget.

    I just did my STD using electronic greeting cards and it was quick/easy/free. Invitations and web site are next on the to-do list and there will be a RSVP feature on the web site.

    Cheers!

      I also have some questions about your website...
      Also, it looks like you're using the Ewedding website. I'm using the same one, but can't figure out how to change my URL (the one I have is really complicated). And my other question is about the RSVP feature. Guests have gone on to RSVP for my cruise (not the ceremony since that is happening before we sail), but when I get the RSVP it only tells me how many guests are coming and not their names. Have you figured out a way to get their names to show up?
      I did send out my invites already. I sent them out early because I wasn't going to be sending out STD's and most of my guests needed the next 9 months to save for their wedding vacation. So far the response has been pretty good.

      We actually had already registered this URL before we found ewedding.com. FI is a programmer and knows how to link a URL to a site. Not sure how to do it but I will ask him when he gets home from work. The easier way to do it though is to upgrade your account and you are able to change your URL from there.

      I'm not sure if you have an upgraded account but I did upgrade. When someone RSVP's I can see their name on my edit page but not on the actual website. I think that you need to upgrade to see the names on the RSVP.

      I promise I'll get back to you about the URL later today.

        Thanks Jenny,

        I actually got a response from the customer support. They were able to change my URL, and also leave the old one active.
        Also, with the RSVP, I figured it out. The reason I wasn't seeing the other names is that I didn't have it password protected. When you don't have it set up with a password, it doesn't ask for names!

        I appreciate the help!

          I've heard of brochures for welcome bags.. but never as invites.. Its really a good idea..

          Where did you get them? Did you DIY?

          My brochure invites were DIY. I went to staples and bought brochure paper and actually had them printed there as well. Altogether my invites (including postage) ended up costing me $130.00. I'll try to post some pics here but I'm unsure how to do it. I will definitely get back to you on that!
