RSVP’ing online has become a hot trend and with good reason! Now more than ever before, couples are paying for their own wedding stationery and budgets are tight. I get it! RSVP’ing online is a great way to still send traditional invitations while saving on your invitation suite.
So how do you go about doing it?
A details card is your go-to! If you’re RSVP’ing online, chances are it’s on your website. My big concern with RSVP’ing online is that people will miss your instructions, so I always recommend making it big and clear that they’re supposed to R.S.V.P. to your wedding online.
Here’s an example of how I would not recommend writing it out on your details card:
“For additional details, including hotel accommodations,
weekend events and to R.S.V.P., please visit our website:
The main reason I don’t recommend this option is because there’s no weight behind RSVP’ing. You could read through that entire section and easily glance over the most important part of the whole paragraph. Some invitation designs also feature typography that’s in all caps so the R.S.V.P. would blend in even more.
This example is still an acceptable way to address RSVP’ing online however, I would recommend putting more weight behind it, similar to this:
Kindly reply on our website
by July 10
For additional details, including hotel accommodations and weekend events, please visit our website: www.carolinaandshawn.com”
By making R.S.V.P. it’s own section, it becomes significant and also provides an opportunity for an R.S.V.P. date. It’s optional to include the website URL in this section as well.
There is still room to fit both the R.S.V.P. and website as their own sections on a small details cards. If you’d like to include any additional details, I would recommend a larger details card.
