Slick online RSVPs from Nearlyweds #Sponsors: Web Services#rsvp#web tools#wedding websites November 20 | Ariel offbeatbride This business paid a fee to be listed on Offbeat Bride because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads. Dearly beloveds, we are gathered here today to poke under the hood of Nearlyweds!, offbeatbride.com's sponsor for the month of November. Alright, so let's review, shall we? Nearlyweds! is a wedsite service provider with cool features like guest maps, non-barfy templates, and the option to order invites that match your website. This week we're going to talk about the wedsite feature that pleases four different kinds of offbeat brides: geeky, green, budget, AND lazy dwarves. Er, brides. That wedsite feature would be online RSVP, of course. As anyone who's read the book knows, I'm a big fan of RSVPs, and this is yet another "Wed 2.0" thing that's come a long way since my wedding in 2004. Online RSVPs are awesome because they save paper, save money on stamps, are way easier, and integrate more easily into your obsessive geeky-bride spreadsheet. (Ok, only some of us have spreadsheets. GUILTY!) Nearlyweds! makes it easier than easy. Go check it out on my test page. Nearlyweds! allows guests to give you the simple info (name, how many people are coming) and then an open area where they can say things like "I'm kosher ovo-lacto Atkins — will you have wine I can drink?" RSVPs are delivered to you via email for easy dropping into spreadsheets (twitch! ocd much? ;)) And remember: if you ever hit a glitch with Nearlyweds!, tech support is super attentive and quick to respond. Not only will they solve your problem, but they might even show up at your door with some tea and cookies later on. Seriously. Tech support is THAT nice. Also, for those of you who have tried the site, what do you think? Another thing I like about Nearlyweds! is that they're super open to feedback from users, so if you have thoughts, feel free to share 'em here.
