Thinking about going digital with your wedding invitations? There are several paperless invitation platforms to choose from, but one of the handiest features to look out for is the ability to collect online RSVPs.
Online RSVPs enables you to easily track responses, follow up with late guests, and keep everyone’s details together in one place. Some platforms even allow you to send group updates to your entire guest list, create a custom RSVP form, and track RSVPs for other wedding events like your bridal shower and rehearsal dinner.
However, not every platform offers these features – so, we’ve done the hard work for you! Keep reading as we round up 6 of the best online wedding invitations with RSVP features below.
Here at WedSites, we have everything you need to plan a wedding in one beautiful place! Not only can you create a custom wedding website and send digital invitations through our platform, we also have a bunch of clever RSVP features to help you simplify the process from start to finish.
Our RSVP form syncs with your digital guest list database, so only those who have been invited can RSVP (saving you the awkward questions around plus ones and kids!). You can also personalize your RSVP form with custom questions, and create separate RSVP forms for your pre and post-wedding events. Your RSVPs will be automatically updated in your digital database, so you can easily see at a glance who’s responded and who you’re waiting to hear back from. We’ll even send automated reminders to those last-minute stragglers on your behalf!
While our wedding website builder is free, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $99 or $199 to access our paperless stationery and online RSVP features. However, this also gives you access to our entire suite of digital planning tools, including our digital checklist, seating chart creator, budget calculator and more.
Joy is a wedding website builder offering a bunch of beautiful templates for your save the dates and wedding invitations. The platform also includes online RSVP tracking for your paperless stationery, with the ability to create a custom RSVP form and collect RSVPs for multiple events.
The platform is completely free to use, so if you’re looking for a cost-effective option, this is a definite bonus! However, customization options are quite limited, and you’re unable to upload custom designs which may be a deal breaker for some.
Paperless Post has an extensive range of online invitations for all kinds of celebrations, including wedding invitations, save the dates and bridal showers. You can also use the platform to upload and send your own designs if preferred.
The platform has a bunch of helpful guest list features, including online RSVPs, RSVP tracking and the ability to collect mailing addresses for your event. With thousands of designs to choose from (grouped into categories such as rustic, classic and boho), you’ll have no trouble finding a template to suit your needs.
Unfortunately, Paperless Post doesn’t include the option to create a digital wedding website, so the experience won’t be as cohesive for your guests. Pricing-wise, certain designs are free while others need to be purchased using packs of digital coins, which some users may find tricky to navigate.
Along with offering an extensive range of handpicked paperless invitations, Greenvelope also includes online RSVP tracking to streamline the wedding planning process.
In terms of RSVP features, you can easily track your guest’s responses online, schedule automatic reminders, and send group updates for last-minute changes. We also love that the platform partners with environmental charities to help you reduce the carbon footprint of your wedding.
Unfortunately, the platform doesn’t include a wedding website builder, so if you’re seeking an “all-in-one” solution it may not be the best fit for you. The pricing structure is also calculated based on the number of guests, which may be something to consider for those planning a big wedding.
Minted is a wedding website builder and digital invitation platform boasting hundreds of unique designs. The platform also offers easy address collection and online RSVPs, with the ability to track RSVPs for multiple events, personalize your RSVP questions and schedule RSVP reminders for guests.
We love that Minted offers matching designs for your wedding website and paperless stationery, helping to create a cohesive RSVP experience for your guests. However, if you’re looking for additional wedding planning tools (such as budget tracking, seating chart creation, or a run sheet builder), it may not tick all of your boxes.
The Knot is one of the most well-known digital wedding brands, offering everything from wedding websites to paperless stationery, online gift registries, and a vendor directory.
In terms of guest list management and RSVP tracking, you can easily create a custom wedding website, send digital invites and collect online RSVPs through the platform using their guest list tool. You can also enable RSVPs for multiple wedding events, track responses, and receive RSVP notifications straight to your inbox.
While the platform is certainly affordable and user-friendly, you may find the RSVP options are more rigid than others. There’s also no way of escaping the third-party advertisements being constantly served via the platform.
So, Which Platform is Right For You?
While all of the above platforms offer digital wedding invitations with online RSVPs, there are some key differences between them!
To find the best fit for your needs, we’d recommend writing a list of “must-have” features and using this to narrow down your options.

- Do you want plenty of customization options?
- Do you want a completely free option, or are you happy to pay for more features?
- Do you need a wedding website builder?
- Do you want the ability to send group updates to your entire guest list?
