I hope you all don’t mind counting down with me. Brian and I are pretty web savvy, and we decided, even before picking our stationery, that we would want people to RSVP online.
Here is the information card that will go out with the invites:
We also let people know early on what was available on the website by putting it on our save the date.
I’m glad we used information cards, because ordering response cards and envelopes (plus postage) would have increased our cost. Here are the factors that went into picking our invites:
* Color Scheme: self explanatory
* Theme: we wanted it to be contemporary but still have enough traditional elements to make our parents happy
* Paper: I needed high-quality, recyclable paper
* Cost: definitely needed to be cost efficient
And our thank you card:
We also have direction cards as part of our invitation suite.
Have you had much success using a website as an RSVP tool? So far, we have had several people RSVP, and they haven’t even received the invites yet.
I would love to hear from you. Are you using traditional response cards? Online responses? Phone responses? What are you having the most luck with?
