Military Face Unique Wedding Planning Challenges

You may have seen it on Forbes.com, Yahoo Finance, or even on this Chinese News Site!   Our Wedding Plus is running a military special!

It’s no secret that many of our military couples are going through a rough time with the extended deployments and time away from family.  Imagine planning your wedding while your fiancé is half-way around the world for the entire year leading up to your ceremony.  Your budget is small and communication is limited to the occasional email.  Additionally, both your family and your fiancé’s family are from different parts of the country.  This problem is faced everyday by young military couples stationed around the world.  How do you coordinate plans with your fiancé?  How do you spread the word about wedding details to guests located around the country?

That’s why we decided to run a special for our military and their fiancés at Our Wedding Plus.  If you or your fiancé are active duty, Reserve, or Guard in the US Military we are providing you free premium wedding websites. 

Wedding websites are the ultimate communication tool for couples when planning their wedding.  Our Wedding Plus wedding websites also allow secure online RSVP and you can build and organize your guest list online.  This gives you the ability to broadcast email notices to guests and use the automated email reminders to guests to help expedite the RSVP process.

So if you or your fiancé are qualified, go to Our Wedding Plus and click on the military special button for details and see how to get started!  This offer is good until the end of February 2008.

The RSVP Blues

Response CardYou spent a lot of money on your wedding invitations, you have a tremendous and might I say expensive wedding reception planned and its two days before your RSVP deadline and guess what? Only 50% of the people you invited have bothered to send you their RSVP, in spite of the fact that you included addressed and stamped response cards with your wedding invitation package!

This seems to be a universal problem. So how do we handle it? Is there a trick to get people to be courteous enough to give you some sort of a response? Well, maybe, here’s a couple that might work. If you have other suggestions share them with us.

1. Give your guests the option of RSVPing online. Some “personal wedding websites” allow you to track your RSVPs online. How does this help you with your RSVP deadline predicament? A few days prior to your RSVP deadline, send a friendly email reminder to those guests who you haven’t received a response from and provide a link to your RSVP page on your wedding website. The only issue here is you have to have their email address. But, since most people are communicating with family and friends via email this should be becoming less of an issue.

2. I read about a trick on About.com:Entertaining, where someone suggested leaving an important piece of information off of the invitation. In this case she left off the time of the event. This way if you want to go to the event you will have to call to find out when it is. Seems a little devious, what do you think? While this may work for small weddings, I can see this being a problem for larger ones.

3. Call them. Hmm. Is that correct etiquette? I guess it is possible that the invitation was lost in the mail.

It’s a tough one, but I think I’d go with a combination of 1 & 3. I would attempt to contact as many through email as possible and give them the option of RSVPing online. Then if that doesn’t work, the day after the RSVP deadline, I’ll try to call them. After that I give up.

Sidenote: The response card shown above is an accessory to a very finely made letterpress wedding invitation from William Arthur. If you are interested in see the invitations and the rest of the wedding invitation accessories, click here!

The Personal Wedding Website

personal wedding websitesSo you’re getting married. Are you ready for the challenge? There’s a lot ahead! Building your guest list, tracking RSVPs, keeping track of your guests meal preferences, keeping your guests informed or event details, out of town accommodations, maps and directions, gift registry information. Don’t you wish there was an easy way to handle these details, especially with all the other decisions you need to handle?

Well lucky for you there is! Get yourself a personal wedding website! Believe it or not personal wedding websites are not yet mainstream. There are still a lot of couples out there who don’t realize how easy it is to get their own wedding website and what the benefits are. They may think that if it even was possible to get their own wedding website it would be way to expensive and complicated. But wedding websites are becoming easier to create and more advanced.

There are a couple of different major wedding website options to choose from. You can have your personal wedding website created for you by a professional web designer or you can create your own wedding website with one of the many wedding website companies out there. I recommend creating your own since it has become so easy, you can update your website any time, and they’re cheap!

Here’s how a wedding website can help you…

– Do you have a lot of family and friends out of town? They will have questions about accommodations, directions, etc.

– Do you want to let your guests get to know you and your bridal party? Your wedding website can tell your story, how you met, introduce your bridal party, so your guests feel a little more familiar at your wedding.

– Your guests want to know what to get you as a gift, where your registered etc. You may feel uncomfortable verbally telling your guests where your gift registry is and you probably don’t want to put it in your invitation package. But you can put it on your wedding website and you can even put a link to your registry!

– Many wedding websites have offer the ability to build your guest list online and track RSVPs online. This not only makes it easier for you to track RSVPs but it gives your guests an easy option to RSVP and let you know their meal choices.

So, for those of you that have a personal wedding website. Was it a great as they are cracked up to be? Share your problems and how it helped you. Are there any wedding website features that were worthless or features you wish you had?
