Wedding Invitation Ideas: RSVP Online

When my husband and I got married, tracking all the RSVP cards was a bit of a job—and we didn’t have a large invitation list. 

Recently a bride tipped us off that she used an online RSVP form from Wufoo. Here’s what she said:

With Wufoo, you can generate reports and never again have to compile individual emails.  I used Wufoo on my wedding RSVP and it worked perfectly.  No RSVP cards.  I simply downloaded all the RSVPs (including dinner choices) the day before my event.

(By the way, using this system did not mean she flouted tradition altogether. She had glorious peacock-themed paper invitations from Hello!Lucky.)

We already knew how great and easy Wufoo is because we use it ourselves to survey our readers on our website. I knew immediately that Wufoo would make it super-easy for any couple to customize an RSVP page so it would reflect their style.

You can even include a Google map to your reception. Nice.

Wedding Reception Idea: Dance Your Socks Off

Here’s a little trick you can learn from the kids these days.

A couple of years ago I was at a bat mitzvah and I noticed all the girls had kicked off their new strappy heels when it came time for dancing. No surprise! But what caught my eye was that they were all wearing the same little white socks—like they had planned it in advance. “Oh, no” my niece told me. “There’s a basket of them over by the DJs so everyone can have a pair.”

Brilliant!

Now, about the male guests….
