I used it mainly for rsvps and it had Covid-19 updates for guests who looked (I’m guessing very few did). Most of our guests rsvpd on the website (we didn’t mail out rsvp cards), but a few texted my husband or myself. I did include a story about how we met and the proposal- I doubt many read it.
We didn’t use it for RSVPS but we used it for travel info , as it was an out of town wedding for most of our guests. I wanted hotel and transport and venue info all available in a convenient place . I’m certain many of our guests never looked at it, but a couple did for sure, so for me it was worth it to make one. If my wedding had been local and at a traditional venue I may not have bothered. But at the end of the day it was simple and kind of fun to design so, no regrets there even if no one used it.
We are basically using it for rsvps and all the info that would go on a details card that we aren’t having mailed. Online rsvp and meal choice and song suggestions are on one page. Hotel and airport info on another as we have a lot of out of town guests. We also have directions to the venue because it’s odd and google maps isn’t too helpful. We have our registry on there as well. I went to a friends wedding last year and she had a website with all the same info. It was cute and some of the info was helpful like what to wear and all that was listed on the website.
love my wedding website! Wedding wire lets you make a cute little quiz and also surveys if you want some guest opinions. It links to your wedding registries (which is great since it's tacky to put on invites). You're able to put any and all travel information on there. And my favorite part is the RSVP feature. Someone searches their name and then they can only RSVP for themselves and those linked to their name! No one can RSVP for anyone that wasn't invited! I've heard so many horror RSVP stories that that alone is worth it to me!
A website serves as an FAQ that guests can refer to before invites are sent. Especially helpful when you don't have family to spread info via word of mouth. It also includes registry information which is rude to include in the invites. You can list local hotels, info about room blocks. Often the link is listed on the save the date.
Depending on the website company you go with, it allows guests to reply online with all necessary info (attending individual events, needing transportation, song choices, meal choices, etc) if replies by paper or text are not an option.
I use it for rsvps as well! We didn’t send physical rsvps. It’s 2020 and i don’t understand why people still rely on the mail ones. It’s also exciting receiving the notification that someone rsvp’d. I also use it for covid 19 info and registry. It’s all in one place ! I use Zola.
My guests did an exceptional job reviewing COVID updates and RSVPing on our website.
Rsvp online: It saved postage, allowed the date to be extended <no mail delay> and gave us instant notifications. Covid: to keep with venue and government restrictions we posted updates on a covid page. We included "this message was last updated on ××/×× date" so they knew how current the info was. I would highly recommend a page!
I think it’s useful for RSVPs and definitely to stay up to date with info of the wedding during covid
We didn't use it for RSVPs, but it's good to have if you don't like talking to people. We put ours on our save the dates and I know people looked at it. It helped us avoid a million questions about our registry and hotel block. You can also use it to share information about covid precautions.
I had those same thoughts when I first got engaged and started reading about wedding websites. I'm older, and though I'm a little tech savvy, I couldn't imagine what the heck would be on a wedding website. Then I checked out a few options, and discovered what all the previous posters have said. So many useful things! My favorite feature is where you can add personal details and photos for guests to look at. Not just FH and me either. We also have a page dedicated to our wedding party. Names, photos, short blurbs written by us about these people and what they mean to us. It's nice since our 2 sides don't really know each other yet. Gives them a sneak peek of us and our inner circle.
