Save time

The guest book is updated automatically each time guest responds and total numbers of guests who responded "yes" or "no" are provided right away without having to count manually.

Save money

Comparing to old fashioned way of collecting guests responses, you do not need to provide a return envelope with a stamp together with the invitation.

Reliability

There is no risk of mail being lost or that you forget to update the guest book. Our service is always available and responses do not get lost.

Customization

Optionally, you can also ask your guests about their menu choices or other additional information. You can collect separate answers for separate events (ceremony, after-party dinner, etc.) and much more.

About the service / How event organizers should use it

1. Set up your account

After logging in for the first time we recommend setting up your wedding related events (such as "After-graduation dinner", "Movies before the party" etc.) and providing additional details and questions to your guests (such as menu choices, song selections, etc.). Guest can be invited to each event individually and you will have a separate guest list for each event. Your guests will be prompted to RSVP for each event they are invited to.

In the "Settings" tab you can customize your response page in a variety of ways. You can also customize your "Thank you" page, set up the date of the last day your guests can respond and much more.

If you cannot find an option or feature that you were looking for, feel free to contact us. Although it is plainly impossible to fulfill everyone's needs, we have implemented lots of options and features that were originally requested by our users.

2. Populate your guest list

Populating your guest list is optional. If in the "Settings" tab you set up your guest list as "Open", your guests will be able to add themselves to it.

If you rather have a better control of your guest list though, do not choose that option. Instead, in the "Guest List" tab you will be able to add invited guests to your guest list or you can import all guests at once using any spreadsheet application.

The guests are grouped together by "invitations" which should represent the real invitations that you will send out to your guests. You can easily edit each invitation that is already entered or, if your guest has responded through some other means (for example through the phone), you can quickly respond for that guest so that your guest list is up to date.

3. Send the invitations

We recommend sending invitations to your guests the traditional way. With your invitation you should provide simple instructions on how to access your RSVP page online. You do not need to know your guests' email addresses to be able to share direct RSVP links with them (for example, through social networking sites).

You have a choice of providing your guests with event.anrsvp.com home page address where they will need to find your event, then provide their name and then actual response. The second option is to provide them with your RSVP link where they will be taken to your response page directly. The third option is to provide each guest with their individual private RSVP link so that they do not need to enter their names.

Each link can have language code appended to it so that your guests can respond in their native language instead of being forced to use English. You can see a list of available languages after clicking on the corresponding link above your guest list. If you do not see your language, you can always request it.

4. Wait for the responses

Once your invitations are sent out, you can take care of your other event related tasks. If you provide your email address or phone number in the "Account" tab, you will be getting email and SMS notifications each time a guest RSVPs.

You can also export your guest list to an Excel file in the "Guest List" tab. The Excel version of the file is also more printer friendly so you might find this feature useful whenever you want to print out your guest list. You might find it easier to browse your guest list by sorting it by the guests' last names or their answers. The same sorting option will be preserved in the spreadsheet file.

F.A.Q. / Frequently asked questions

Q: Will I have to pay for the service?

A: No, this site is free for everyone. You will not have to pay a penny to be able to use our RSVP service. You can also request a new feature or functionality for free.

As you might have realized, besides providing the service for free we are also not including any popup advertisements on our website. The idea is that you are getting a free service of a high end quality.

Although we do charge for additional items/services, these are not required to be able to use our service.

Q: Do you share private information with other companies?

A: All your private information is kept only by AnRSVP and it is not sold or given to anyone else. We will contact you on your email address only if you have confirmed it or if you have contacted us.

Q: Two of my guests have the same name. How do I get around this problem?

A: Your guest list cannot have two identical names. One way around this problem is to provide a prefix for one of the two guests, for example: Mr. or Mrs. Then, provide that particular guest with their own private RSVP link instead of the event-wise RSVP link. This way, he or she will not need to enter their name and will not accidentally answer for the other guest with the same name.

Q: I am not getting emails when the guests are sending their answers. What should I do?

A: If you provided an email address while registering, an email message has been sent to you containing a link to the email confirmation page. Please find the email and click on the link. If you cannot find the email, it is possible that you have provided an incorrect email address or that there is a problem with the system. If this is the case, please contact us.

Q: Is there a maximum amount of guests that can be used for an event?

A: There is no limit.

Q: The response page suddenly stopped working. The message says that no responses are accepted anymore. Is something broken?

A: No. When you log in to the account, in the "Settings" tab you will find "Last day to respond" field. The field is blank by default so if it is populated in your account, it means that you or someone else who has access to the account has populated the field and specified such date. The reason for the message above is that the last day to respond has passed. If you want your guests to continue being able to respond, you can either clear out that field or choose a further date.

Q: There are things that I want to be able to configure in my account but I cannot. What should I do?

A: If there is a feature or improvement you would like us to add to the application, simply please let us know by sending us an email. If we decide it will fit most of our users, we will implement it for free.

Q: Is there a way to pre-set the maximum amount of people that each party can bring? For example if you are expecting 3 people from Family A, and 4 people from Family B. Is there a way to pre-set this so that Family A doesn't bring 7 people and Family B doesn't bring 10?

A: Yes, we provide this functionality. At the time when you enter invited guests to the guest book, you can choose the "Party", which is how many guests total, including the named person, are invited. You can also provide multiple entries with their own "parties" in a single invitation. For example, if you invite a family of 4 - 2 parents and 2 daughters, and you want to allow the daughters to bring their boyfriends, you can list each family member names (mother, father, daughter #1 and daughter #2) and provide party for each (mother and father each would be 1, and each daughter would be 2). Alternatively, you could just provide the head of family's name with party of 6.

Q: Is my data that I enter to the application safe?

A: In case of system failure we do nightly database backups that are stored on a separate machine. In case of a data loss, we will be able to retrieve all the information from up to 24 hours ago. This means that if you entered some data to the application within last 24 hours, there is a slight chance it will be lost. Data entered more than 24 hours ago is virtually 100% safe. However, you must know that since this service is free for everyone, we are not legally responsible for many things, including data loss. Non-preventable, non-predictible circumstances could potentially cause all data and backups to be lost.

Q: Is there a certain amount of time before the website becomes inactive?

A: The account will be permanently deleted from the system 1 year from your last log in. You can also delete the account manually. The response page will become inactive either then or after the "Last day to respond" that you provide in the "Settings" tab, whichever comes faster.

We do not collect any additional information from your guests, such as contact information or bother them to register with us
