Wedding RSVP

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

Many wedding sites like The Knot or Zola allow RSVPs to be specific to the guest so that it is already populated with the number of additional guests allowed for their party. For example, some guests may be allowed +1 while others may be allowed +3 because of their children. Is there a way to do this on Squarespace? Perhaps a plugin that someone knows about?

Squarespace doesn’t have an RSVP function. You’ll want to use a third party solution or a wedding specific platform like https://withjoy.com.

Also looking for a solution to this. Does not need to be that secure and the way I envision the flow would be the guest would just enter first and last name into a form filed and from there based on the field input the submit would construct a url ex: somewebsite.com/lastnamefirstname where lastnamefirstname is the value inputted. If the URL exist the guest would be taken to that page with another form to complete the rsvp info. It would also be great if that page form could populate based on the amount of total guest in a party (+1, +3 etc) and maybe even guest names. If the URL does not exist they get a 404 custom 404 page where they can contact us directly through form or mailto link.

As the previous comments mentions this type of functionality exist in some of these other platforms out the box (and even in free tiers) so really looking to get something similar out of Squarespace as one of the reason we specifically selected Squarespace is to have more control and privacy for the site.

Anyone know if there have been any recent changes to allow for this?

The accepted answer is still correct.

Hi all! After A LOT of searching, I came across a platform specializing in RSVP management that can be embedded into Squarespace using an embed block. The site is https://rsvpify.com/ and here is a helpful article on their site that shows you how to do it https://help.rsvpify.com/en/articles/1222544-how-do-i-set-up-my-embed-to-work-with-squarespace. I'm sure this is too late for the previous people looking but hopefully helpful for people in the future. I was looking specifically for wedding RSVPs which require grouping of attendees etc but it seems like this can be used for all manner of RSVP events. Hope it helps.

when you say this, do you mean i should embed a third party solution (or wedding specific platform) into my squarespace site, or that i should avoid squarespace entirely and build the entire site on something like With Joy?

Yes. As Squarespace doesn't have an RSVP function, you could choose either of those.

If you've built a site on Squarespace and just want to add an RSVP function, you can embed a service. 

If you haven't started building your site yet, you may find that a wedding specific platform would be better at meeting your needs.

I'm a bit confused, when you set up a wedding template site an RSVP is a default button and functionality in the template, but you're saying that's not supported.  

Feedback:  Squarespace should not market RSVP capability for their sites if it's not supported.  

How do you collect customer info and see results in forms, which I would think you could use as an RSVP functionality.

You can add a contact form (a “Form Block”) to allow users to “RSVP” by sending you a reply, for example by email. Perhaps this will meet your needs? On the other hand, there isn’t an intelligent RSVP function where you can see a dashboard of how many guests responded, how many are attending, how many have dietary requirements and so on. However there are third party services that you can embed.
