But first a little background, in case you missed it the first time… With Glö, you can: Send Glövites: paperless invitations, custom save-the-dates and even a group thank you! Create a matching wedding website, aka. Glosites, with unlimited pages, photos, widgets, interactive maps and downloadable documents. Add unlimited events to your website and select which guests are able to view each event. This is a great option for weddings certain guests are only invited to the reception. Add unlimited RSVP questions, collect the answers and view them online or download them. Couples can also update their guests' RSVP responses online. Easily communicate with all of your guests before and after the wedding using their easy messaging tool. For example, this "week of the wedding update." Choose your own design: use their awesome designs or upload your own! And now, here's the exciting announcement: All of Glö's awesome designs are now available in matching paper versions — perfect for those older relatives or non-techie types. And they're nice to have as a keep-sake too. Glö is also a featured vendor in our Offbeat Vendors guide! Not only is Glö eco-friendly, and super time-saving, but they're budget-friendly too — I'm talking a package with email invites, glosite, guestlist and RSVPs for 100 guests, for $99. And their packages start at $75 and go up from there, depending on your needs. But, if you're still dubious, they offer a free trial. So, check 'em out and save money, time, the environment and a ton of wedding-related stress! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

It has definitely made life easier. I highly suggest using their service and I love that you can now print the designs; we have some computer phobic guests, so this is great! Reply I've been on Glo since July and LOVE IT. It's a great way for everything to be in a centralized database. I love that there are print invites now available, what bride doesn't want matching stationary?!?! Do yourself a favor and sign up pronto! Reply Shanelle and Alicia, Hooray! I'm all smiles that GlÃ¶ has been so useful for you – and I totally love having you gals as GlÃ¶bies 🙂 Hope all your planning is going well. Reply I, too, am a Glo veteran. I really cannot stop singing the praises about Glo and Taryn. I'll try to just list a few of my favorite parts: – Eco-friendly and *way* cheaper (and less work!) than paper invites. – Powerful tools to group/label guests (for example, you could label certain guests with "Rehearsal" and only invite those guests to the rehearsal dinner). – More ease of working with guests: It's super convenient to see who has viewed the invite, who has RSVPd, etc., and you can always export everything to a file you can open in Excel. Huge time-saver. Also, you can keep track of gifts and whether you sent your guests thank-yous. Seriously, Glo has thought of everything! – Since I don't have to pay extra to send out more things, I plan to send out a note the week before the wedding with an update on weather. Something I wouldn't have been able to do otherwise. – It's easier for guests to RSVP quickly online than to remember where they put the invite and wonder whether they sent the reply. As a result, quicker (and more) RSVPs. – Uniqueness: you can still make your invites as unique (off-beat) as you are by designing them yourselves. We did that even though the provided templates were very nice. Okay, I'll stop. But really, save yourselves some time, money, and stress, and check it out :). Reply Life saver! I have been searching around for just this kind of site and there is was on Offbeat Bride today! Thank you thank you thank you!! Now off to design our invites and site. Reply Hi Jennifer! I'm glad you found us. let me know if you have any questions or I can help in any way as you get started. Reply Thanks!
