Happy #WeddingWednesday!! I have some more organization tips to share that I’m super excited about, mostly because it’s relieved me of so much stress AND I think it’s going to be a great tool for our guests as well!
Yesterday I was thinking of ways to keep my guests informed so that I can avoid being on my phone the whole week before the wedding. We do have a wedding website but I’ve noticed some people don’t bother checking it before asking their questions, OR they have a hard time navigating it. SO I thought, what better way to inform them than to create a FAQ sheet! It’s a really simple way to put all the important info in one place, and answer all the questions that seem to come up a little too often. Once you have it typed up, all you have to do is e-mail it out to every guest that RSVPs YES 🙂
Now, if you’re thinking about how much of a hassle it would be to collect everyone’s e-mail addresses, then I completely agree. Which is why I requested that everyone RSVP via e-mail so that when they send me their answer, I automatically have their contact info! You can also have them RSVP through your wedding website and set it up so that they have to sign in with their e-mail. Wedding Wire has a great tool for setting this up!
At the top of the page, I shared a small sample of what our FAQ sheet looks like. I addressed questions like are kids invited, what is the parking situation, can I bring a +1, etc. This eliminates people texting or calling closer to the wedding with questions like this, which will free up some of your time and relieve some of that stress you may feel right before the wedding.
Everyone’s FAQ page will look a little different and will have to address different questions, but my advice is to answer every question with a very straightforward answer, leaving no room for MORE questions, and to be extremely upbeat and polite throughout the letter – we want to inform our guests, not offend them LOL!
Good luck and happy planning!!
