I hope you don’t have to have ‘that talk’ with anyone. Ever. Ever ever ever!
I’m referring to the awkward un-invite conversation. I honestly can’t think of anything more uncomfortable than telling a relative or friend that they can’t actually come, or that all their kids they RSVP’d for aren’t invited.
This happens. It actually happens a lot. People will RSVP for themselves and family members that you didn’t actually invite. Or, everyone is invited to the ceremony, but not all other events you have and they RSVP for those as well.
This is why we revolutionized online wedding RSVPs.
Our new ‘Total RSVP’ tool fixes this problem. You now have two options when setting up your RSVPs; Open RSVP and Closed RSVP.
1 Open RSVP
- Any visitor to your website can see all your events and the RSVP forms for each
- Any visitor can RSVP for any event
- Any visitor can RSVP for any amount of guests
- Quick setup
- Manage RSVP’s 24/7/365 in your RSVP Manager
- Download CSV of results
2 Closed RSVP
- You add your guest list on ‘My Guests’
- You set which events RSVPs each guest can see and RSVP for
- Guests have to search by their name on your site to see the RSVP forms
- Guests only see RSVPs for events they are invited to
- Guests can only RSVP for themselves and anyone you connect to them
- Guests cannot RSVP for anyone you don’t allow
- See which guests are coming, not coming and who hasn’t responded yet
- Manage RSVPs 24/7/365 in your RSVP Manager
- Download CSV of results
The Open RSVP is quick and easy to setup and works well for many couples. The Closed RSVP gives you total control though, this is important if you have limited seats, needs exact numbers for catering, need to make sure you control who RSVPs, etc. If your wedding ceremony and reception isn’t going to be a free for all, you should be using our proprietary Closed RSVP system.
Collecting RSVPs any other way can lead to problems, but worst of all, the awkward un-invite. Don’t let that happen, be sure to use our Total RSVP online wedding RSVP solution to manage your RSVPs the best way possible. You will be glad you did.

Our website is pretty awesome
Our website is pretty awesome as we decided to elope but then this website has allowed us to share with our friends and family all that we planned in a short amount of time to make them feel a part of the whole thing. So everyone still feels like they are invited and they didn’t miss out on any of the details…no matter how little details there were. They have sent us messages and let us know if they thought they would like to make the last minute trip. This site allowed us to communicated information on the live broadcast we would be doing and they all just need to go to one site for everything. I sent out announcements…but the announcements only had the link that took them back to our website. We received a lot of comments on how cool the site was and it was super easy and fun to set up. I didn’t have time to send out engagement announcements, so we did engagement pictures and put that on the site as well. I used the site to post information on discounts for flying to our wedding if they decided to make the trip. For the small fee, this wedding website has more then paid for itself.Valerie & Chris CA, USA
