Tracking down the elusive RSVPs

Friday, July 2, 2010 | by Newlywed | Labels: , , |

So our RSVP deadline came...and went. And at the end, we counted nearly 60% of our guests had taken the time to tell us whether or not they're coming. Not bad of a response, considering we went the nontraditional route with online RSVP's, but it could be better. I was rather surprised because even some of the "older" folks logged on to our web site to give us an answer. People commented on how so much fun and easier it was to respond online. The other 50 or so people who didn't RSVP? I think they probably wouldn't have responded regardless if it was snail mail or online.

So, we're hitting the phones this week! Wish us luck!

I was surprised by how well our online RSVP system worked- even with the older crowd! Eco-friendly and budget savvy! :) And even if you'd done traditional snail mail RSVP's you are right- you'd still have to be making these phone calls. Some people just don't understand the importance of an RSVP!

Good luck with the calls! :)

I think online RSVP is so much easier! Ugh, what a pain in the ass cold calling is going to be! Good luck!
