Wedding season is soon to be upon us and given that we've already received a few inquiries on how to send digital save the dates via RSVPify, we thought we'd
- Ensure that our users know that this is of course possible on our platform, and
- Provide a brief overview of the steps to doing so.
Sending Save the Dates via RSVPify
Step 1: Create / Import your Guest List
While you may not have finalized your guest list, odds are you know who the 'definites' are and these are the folks who should be receiving your digital save the dates. As such, you should import a guest list from an excel spreadsheet (using our template to avoid issues!).
Tips: Only include the columns that are in the template, do not re-order them, and do not edit the column headers. If you do not need to include some of the information (e.g. Titles), simply leave the cells in column A blank. The Party ID column is how you will group your guests into Parties (you can learn more about the Party ID column here).
For an in-depth guide to uploading your guest list, see here.
Step 2: Design your Invitation (e.g. Save the Date!)
If you haven't already, the next step is to to design your invitation (via the 'Invites' section of the application). Don't let the word 'Invitation' throw you off here as this is just where mass digital communications are created and sent!
- Feel free to upload a scanned / digital copy of your paper Save the Date as an image to the body of the digital Save the Date
- Need some save the date design inspiration and ideas? See here.
- Be sure to customize the email subject line and the from Name. Note that we recommend leaving the 'From Email' to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure maximum deliverability.
- Be sure to remove your RSVP button before sending! (see below)
- You should also manually close your RSVP form (just to be safe) so that your guests don't begin responding before you've finished finalizing your form.
How to Delete The RSVP Button:
- Click the RSVP Button within the email builder
- Click on trash can icon
