I have heard of a lot of people doing RSVP's via email lately. I'm wondering if that's a good idea. Of course I am all for saving some money on return cards, but do you think people are more likely to respond via email or mailing the cards back? I'm thinking of asking for email rsvps, and maybe just sending out a couple cards to some of the older guests who are not as likely to use email. What do you think? Has anyone had experience with this?

We did our RSVPs via our website which allowed us to keep track and manage requests like meal choices and DJ song requests. Even my Grandmother (84) was able to navigate it.

Our invitations directed people to our website and provided them with the deadline for response... Then on the website, they entered their name and the invited guest and their accompanying party could then enter their reply info.

Because I wanted to really use my website as an extension of my invitation and I was saving money (and trees) on RSVPs etc I went with a purchased site vs one of the free sites. We used wedshare and I 100% am happy with the decision!

You can check it out here to give you an idea of the way we garnered RSVPs.

I think I'll do Email invites for my At Home Reception, and I already did email invites to the DW. It's just easier! I already have everyones emails, and don't have to go around asking for everyone's home addresses. Also it's easier for the recipient to just click a button, instead of mailing back the prepaid rsvp.

Plus it saves some money! Anywhere to save is a bonus :)

I will be doing everything electronically! I'm working on my site now on AppyCouple. LOVE IT so far! The site looks really modern and the RSVP management options are great. You can even have certain events only visible to certain people (like only show your shower to people invited to the shower). I'm adding a question on the RSVP to ask when they are arriving at the resort so I know who to expect when.

I'm undecided if I want to do email RSVPs or not. I'm torn because I have older family who I don't think are computer savvy. But now I'm wondering if I could have the younger family members just do it for them?

But also I'm wondering if it'll be easier to have the paper RSVP cards in hand so it'll be easier to see exactly how many guests I have and it would be a nice keepsake :)

So many decisions!!

@kmk2016  I have the same reservations about having the older people do email rsvps. But yes, I guess younger family could help them out. We actually don't have too many older guests so I thought of maybe just mailing those few rsvp cards to return and have everyone else to an email rsvp. It would really save a ton of money though and I think for most people it would be quick and easy.
