Alot of people have suggested rsvpify.com as an online option to be added to your Zola/Withjoy/Wix site and the demo is very user friendly and customizable. The threads in the search feature have many positive reviews. You can definitely use this in addition to offering a reply card/text option.
We are sending our RSVP cards that can be mailed back to us but each card will say "please RSVP by mail or online at [our wedding email]". It was easier to do it that way because we're doing buffet bbq so we don't need exact numbers for who wants what food, just a general idea if everyone only wants one thing or no one wants the vegetarian option. I'll keep track of RSVPs on a spreadsheet I made to track addresses, RSVPs, seat arrangements, gifts, thank you cards, etc.
I would definitely set up an RSVP option online
as well. Mail has become quite a redundant form of communication (at least
where I am) BUT for those who are not so tech-savvy, it provides an alternative
to strictly online RSVP methods. In this regard, I think both options will meet
the needs of most crowds.
Personally, I am having RSVP cards but they direct
people to call either myself or FH. I am quite formal with my correspondence
and I do like postal RSVPs but I did not want to spend the money on postage for
I've been invited to weddings with both options, and it's definitely nice to offer. We decided to go all online because we wanted to save money on the invitation suite and I didn't want to spend money on stamps for RSVP cards just for people to do it online. I'd rather put that money towards more important aspects of the wedding!
All the weddings we've been to have had online RSVP only, and that's what we're doing! We like that it saves on paper, and that we'll have all the data in one place on our wedding website!
We have our wedding website listed on our STDs. On our invites, we'll have a picture of us on the back with: "for more wedding information, including accommodations, travel, and to RSVP, please visit our website"...and our website will be listed there as well, but the URL will take them straight to the RSVP page!
I set my wedding website up on here (weddingwire) and it's great! We have to be very strict about plus ones because we have a limited space, and if they aren't on the guest list- they can't rsvp! So, no random RSVP's allowed. We opted to just make sure people know to RSVP online through the website on our invites that we mailed.
