Weddings are a major milestone event in people’s lives, but such a large scale event cannot be achieved without a daunting amount of preparation and logistics. Establishing who is coming can in itself be overwhelming, with paper invites to be sent and physical RSVPs required often not turning up until the last minute, being lost in the post or even forgotten about with the passage of time. Vanilla RSVP allows people to create a wedding website to host their wedding RSVPs and use an online format to collect this information easily and instantly. —
The website offers a plethora of different themes with customizable photographs and information, so individuals know they are responding to the right wedding when they view the website. Individuals can even opt for a custom domain name for their wedding RSVP online, which can be included on the paper invitation so people know exactly how to respond.
The site is a simple, one page affair with a beautiful theme, a custom photo of the couple, with text boxes for users to input the names and the wedding date. Users can then enter whether they accept or decline, and their user information is taken so that the report can be updated on who is attending.
A spokesperson for Vanilla RSVP explained, “While paper invitations are still a must for most couples, the arduous work of collecting paper RSVPs and managing them to create a seating plan is the one element of a wedding no one looks forward to. We’ve taken the pain out of this process by allowing individuals to respond online through a custom website created specifically for your wedding, so your guests can answer the invitation online and the data can be collated by software, creating a list of those attending and those who can’t, so plans can be made simply and easily. We have found that guests appreciate the simplicity of responding via an online tool while the bride and bridegroom love the customization and the instant feedback.”
