1. Manage Your Guests

Import your guest-list spreadsheet from your computer, track RSVP’s, and manage or limit plus-ones all in one place. As guests RSVP to their invites, Joy’s website organizes contact information with addresses and phone numbers so you don’t have to.

Also, you can set up COVID-related RSVP questions like, “will you be willing to wear a mask?” to keep everyone on the same page.

Plenty of brides are streaming their wedding whether they are having guests or not! Let Joy help with their virtual streaming option.

6. FAQ and Travel Tip Pages

Our expert advice: create a FAQs page! You can address covid-specific topics like safety measures, local city or state guidelines, and travel info. Explain any safety precautions you’ll be taking if you’re gathering in person, or explain how to join the livestream for guests who will be joining from home. Save time answering these questions individually, and direct guests to read your FAQ’s section first.
