When was the last time you mailed something out personally? Most people don’t mail things out anymore and I don’t blame them. We live in a digital world, and having to drop something in the mail is just another step that most people don’t want to do. Am I telling you not to create and send out custom wedding invites? heck nuh! You can still have beautiful, custom wedding invitations – but having an online wedding RSVP is going to make your planning a whole lot easier!
Sites like The Knot offer “wedding websites” where you can set up an online RSVP system for your guests. That way, they don’t have to physically mail back your RSVP form.
What’s the point of having an online wedding RSVP?
1. Online wedding RSVP make it easy for your guests
In the 21st century, it’s fair to assume that most people own a cell phone, computer or at least have access to technology. With all the social media and our world becoming more digital people tend to spend countless of hours connected to the world. This might sound like a generalization but most people don’t even know the closes post office aka where to drop off their mail.
It is so much easier now to just go to a link and RSVP online

3. Online wedding RSVPs give your guests options
You’re probably thinking “but I want a beautifully made invitation! I don’t think this is for me…” With all the amazing calligraphers out there creating the most beautiful invitation who am I to deprive you of this beauty.
The great news is there are no set rules, you can opt to do a paper RSVP or an online one
OPTIONS, OPTIONS, OPTIONS, who doesn’t like having the ability to choose. Some people like the tradition of mailing back an RSVP, and for others, it’s just an extra, unnecessary step. Having both makes everyone happy.
