Well I mean for your guests.....probably not everyone is going to check their bags.

      Does anyone know the site to start building my own wedding page? So ppl can see updates and possibly even RSVP . I'm leaning towards not having paper RSVP's and have them respond online. People are all so digital now. And every buck saved counts. :0). I know I hate having to buy stamps . Lol

        Deep,

        I did my page with weddingwire.com but I found that not many people have visited my page since I created it. I know my MIL is on there 24/7 having fun with the music we uploaded but friends I have have not even bothered. I don't get it!!!

          I wanted to do electronic save the dates, but mom told me it was tacky and/or that some guests might not be computer savvy.  She said I could do postcards to save money.  Well, we're going to likely send out just over 100 postcards, which can add up!  I am putting my foot down with RSVPs. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I haven't always send in my RSVP and prefer to just call or email. (Please don't judge me too harshly!)  My guests can either rsvp on the website, or give me a call if they don't feel comfortable using a computer.

              Hey Ladies, In another thread, there was a question about how everyone is organizing their info and I thought I would share what I posted there in this thread as well. I'm a big fan of Google docs in general but Google actually has a Wedding Planner doc  It's called All-in-One Wedding Planner. I've only played around with it just a bit (since I haven't booked anything yet) but there are pre-set tabs for budget estimator (with formulas pre-calculated), guest list, music, photographer, caterer, etc all the info you need already formatted. 
              For example, in the guest list tab, they have checklist columns for address/email/StD sent?/invitation sent?/dietary restrictions?/etc

              Each tab also has some tidbits and advice from Style Me Pretty.

              It;s nice that I don't have to start from scratch and can edit the sheets as I see fit.

              Thxs. Will check it out

                  I use wedding wire too..had a cple rsvp on there. I also have guests comments. Although not as many as I' d like

                  I wanted to do electronic save the dates, but mom told me it was tacky and/or that some guests might not be computer savvy.  She said I could do postcards to save money.  Well, we're going to likely send out just over 100 postcards, which can add up!  I am putting my foot down with RSVPs.

                  Lol..that's okay I won't judge you! Maybe you could send the postcard to older guests to appease your mom Lol. .
