RSVP wording - no response card

Thanks to gregsfuturewife posting about reception card wording, I was able to create our RSVP card.  But, I'm running into a problem on how to tell guests how they can RSVP.  We're not doing the traditional mail-your-rsvp-card.  We're doing a completely online RSVP and not including a response card to mail in. 


Here's the 2nd part of the RSVP (the 1st part was the standard info on where the reception will be since we're having a church ceremony)


R.S.V.P on or before April xxx on our website


www.weddingwire.com/myname&FI


an entree selection will be required


 


Other ways to reply


Phone:  FI cell phone


Voicemail only:  (xxx) xxx-xxxx


 


 



Is this too much info?  Is it ok to say they need to select their meal? 


 


Most of our guests are internet savvy and should be ok with replying online.  But in case they're not comfortable with that, I left my FI's number & voicemail (will be using Google Voice)


 



would appreciate any feedback.... thanks!!

I would give them the option to reply on your website and email.  if you haven't already, make an email specifically for the RSVPs.  I don't think people will want to leave a voice mail to RSVP.  Some people will forget your website's name.  Make an email address of both your names...janeandjon@gmail.com.  Hopefully they will remember.

I would probably remove the "an entree selection will be required", but if you want to leave it there that's fine too.


Hmm...we're also only doing online RSVP only, and here's how we word it:

I like how m4rda has hers worded. Good post, because I'll be trying to figure out the same thing. I think calling is a perfectly acceptable option for those few people not comfortable with computers as well.

thanks for the advice, ladies! 


jennypaul87 - i'll keep the calling option on the RSVP card.


I was going to include an email address too but I figured that if they can email me, they'll be comfortable enough with the internet and can do an online RSVP.  I had my friends "beta test" the online RSVP and they said it was pretty easy to do.

IMO, I think some people will need more than just an internet option. I don't know about your friends and family, but in mine - not everyone uses a computer. I'd keep the phone number and voicemail number on there.

@ amandah24: yup, I'll do that! I think/hope that the more RSVP options they have, the better chance that they'll reply in time & less people I'd have to chase after.  Or maybe I'm just being an optimist :)


thanks!
