  • Wedding video apps?

    Obviously not OP, but we've really enjoyed using I'll disclaim that the whole group of us is just under 30 people, but the option for invitees to not add any extra people on the rsvp was a nice touch for peace of mind. I can't comment on the use for "regular" sized weddings, but I would definitely say it's worth checking out. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • Can We Ask for Digital RSVP for Black Tie Optional Wedding?
    We are planning our black tie optional wedding in January 2023 and are preparing to order our invitations. While I love the aesthetics of a mail-in RSVP with it's own envelope, I'm learning toward digital RSVPs via our wedding website (on My future mother-in-law has made it known that she thinks mail-in RSVPs are the only way to go, so I've been thinking this through for a while. The reasons I've... - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago

    Withjoy is a great tool to use! Not only is it easy to input all your wedding details and photo galleries, it also has a questionnaire section that you can completely customize.

  • Invites to an after-party only + out-of-town guests
    I have the same thoughts/questions actually. I'm leaning towards not doing a registry or mentioning gifts because I can't think of what I would say or do to provide instructions for those who really want to give a gift without creating some expectations. Friends of ours created a registry site on that said "Your presence is enough of a present to us! But for those of you who insist, we've put... - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Most Private Wedding Website Host?
    We used and liked it. There are multiple layers of privacy: you can require a password AND specific guest name* to see any details, so there's no way someone who's not on the guest list would be able to see any info that's not on the homepage. You can also opt to not show the wedding date on the homepage. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • With Joy ... is this just a scam?
    Utilized for basic wedding website information. Now they have locked my image and contact information into a wedding website that I created and can't delete. This includes photo artwork by my brother. It was very easy to delete my wedding website. Why is withjoy being so creepy? Anyone else experience this? - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Where are you registered?
    We have a registry on -- its the only wedding website that doesn't charge a percentage fee on cash gifts and that's kinda what we've noticed that people want to give us. Plus, we figure after the few little physical items that we'd love to receive, we can list a few things like our honeymoon, honeymoon accommodations for our pups, etc that will help some of our other friends and relatives find the... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago

    Hey! I've been using which has been my fav thus far. Not so much for the wedding recommendations and planning (because I prefer to do work of mouth recommendations) but I love their layout when it comes to things that attendees will see and it's totally free. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago

  • $53k 80 guest vineyard wedding in Northern VA
    Save the Dates, Invitations, and Thank You cards all from Minted, plus postage from USPS (obviously). I also bought a Minted More membership that got me a running 20% discount and free shipping, because I knew I probably wouldn't plan well enough to catch sales for every single thing. It wound up being worth it, at least for my peace of mind. We did online RSVPs only through our Joy website and it worked perfectly. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
