One of the first things Dave and I did after getting engaged was start brainstorming our guest list. We both come from big families, so before looking for venues, we needed at least a rough idea of how many people we expect to travel to North Carolina for our wedding day. By the way, I have to mention, we’re getting married exactly ONE year from today!! Ahhh!!!
Compiling our personal lists of immediate family and friends from childhood through college, plus our parents’ lists of extended family and their friends was quite the task in itself, and I know the craziness of managing our guest list is nowhere near over! Though my financial analyst fiancé’s spreadsheet is seriously impressive, there is way more to keep track of than we originally expected, which is why I was so excited to learn about RSVP Wedding Manager.
RSVP Wedding Manager has thought of every possible wedding guest organization need, from importing and organizing contacts from your email account, iCloud and more, to keeping track of who is coming to which event, to whether or not you’ve sent a handwritten thank you note for gifts received. Each guest is assigned an ID number for easy tracking, and you can organize guests into helpful groups (like “Bride’s Family”).
One of my very favorite features? How easy it makes using proper etiquette! Manners will never go out of style, and from the proper salutation to the order in which names should appear on an envelope, RSVP Wedding Manager does the etiquette puzzle for you, wrapping everything up in a handy downloadable report that you can refer to, print out, and share with your envelope calligrapher. Y’all, it does not get easier than that!
Beyond your guest list, RSVP Wedding Manager also offers tools for organizing other important parts of your wedding. You can create to-do lists and assign tasks and deadlines to different people (like your mama or your maid of honor–super helpful if y’all are spread out across the country!), monitor your budget and print reports of it, and even keep track of your vendors and inspiration. It’s so convenient to have all of these tools in one place!
We would love to know, how are you keeping your wedding plans organized?
