The guest list/ invitation/ RSVP process is arguably one of the most stress-inducing parts of planning a wedding. Whether its the costs involved, the general logistics or the fact that people seem incapable of RSVPing on time… its enough to turn the coolest cucumber of a bride into a raging monster.
But there is another option: Paperless Wedding.
This small, family run business based in the UK offers beautifully designed digital invitations which will not only cut out all the stress and costs associated with going down the paper route, is more environmentally friendly AND enables you to track your RSVPs online. In fact the process is so easy I’m a little bit bummed it wasn’t around when I got married ten years ago!
All their design themes are fully customisable meaning your digital invitations can be as unique as your wedding will be. Even if you’re not the most technically savvy person, their system is quick and easy to use. Choose your theme, pick a font, change the colours and layout, upload a photo and you’re good to go! You can even have multiple events and invitations at the same time meaning you can send different invites to your day and evening guests if needed.
After you’ve designed your digital invitations, simply upload your guest list with their emails then hit send and it will automatically email everyone! Then just wait for those those RSVPs roll in. All it takes is one click from the receiver on their phone, tablet or computer and they’ve confirmed their attendance. There’s literally no excuses for people to not RSVP promptly with this system! If someone is really not that technical (maybe your Nan or an older relative) they do offer the option for them to send you a paper reply and then you can manually go in and update their response online for them.
Once all your RSVPs are in (early I hope!) you can then simply download the guest numbers, dietary requirements etc to share with the relevant suppliers.
But that’s not all! Their software can act as your ‘wedsite’ too. You can link your gift list, guest book and all the wedding information all in one place. If you want to be super fancy you can even create your own page from scratch including pictures, galleries, maps and videos.
The cost of Paperless Weddings is £119 which even includes a free Save the Date invite for you to test the system out. Considering the average cost of paper invites and postage in the UK is around £500 (cost of the invites themselves + postage) this could save you a ton of money and aggravation! If you’ve already gone down the paper invite route but want to use their website only package, it is a great way to share information with your guests and costs £79.
