Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, most things have had to go online as a way to keep contact to a minimum and stay safe. We understand that here at Stonebrook Manor and would love to remind you of our unwavering support in these trying times.
You are not alone, and we’ll all get through this together. As part of the move online, email conversations have replaced the physical visit or snail mail by the couples to ask guests to RSVP their wedding. There are, however, a few things that you must consider before engaging in online RSVP. That’s why we decided to make a list of dos and don’ts of RSVPs. Sit back, relax, and read to find out.
- The Dos
Make a list of all the guests you need to email. It will save you lots of time. This also goes for your family and friends that require special considerations during your event.
Customize your RSVPs! They should, at the very least, match with your wedding theme. You can find lots of samples from online websites or design it yourself to make it unique.
Make sure that you include the date, time, and directions on your RSVP. This information is very vital. You can validate your location using google maps.
Add something unique that tells your love story. You can share them through clips and pictures. This is one of the reasons why online RSVPs are better because it would take a ton of paper to do this if you choose to use postal mail.
Record responses. Record, organize and manage your answers to make sure your event goes smoothly. Using an app can save you time and make things easier.
- The Don’ts
Don’t use too many fonts and designs. Just one or two fonts is best for your RSVP. You don’t want to overwhelm essential details.
Don’t send them to children and old folks. It’s always better to have someone else confirm if they will be attending or not. You could still send a printed copy to old folks. They’d appreciate it.
Include meal details. You want to know how many dietary restrictions you’d have to take into account. This will help you with your planning.
Track every response. Make sure you do not miss anyone. It is pretty easy to miss a reaction if you’re not careful when treating your RSVP responses.
Avoid unnecessary info. Keep only the information that is necessary for details to avoid confusion. Having a simple but informative email is a great way to get and tackle all of these in one place.
