Posted by Marianna Di Franco on

QR code wedding invitations are becoming increasingly popular, and you may wonder if they are a good option for your wedding. From save the dates to thank you cards, QR codes offer a unique way to share information with guests. Plus, they're easy to use - all your guests need is a smartphone, and they can scan the code to get all the details about your big day.

This blog post will cover what QR code wedding invitations are, how to create them and we will also provide some tips for using them effectively.

What is a QR Code?

A QR code is a machine-scannable image that can instantly be read using a Smartphone camera. Adding one to your wedding invitations makes it much easier for your guests to RSVP - they won't need to type out a full URL address - they have to snap a photo of the code, and they'll be taken directly to where they need to be! 

How do you create a QR Code for an RSVP card or Invite

Generating a QR code has never been simpler; my go-to site is qr-code-generator.com, which lets you make one in less than 3 minutes - fast and convenient enough for even the busiest wedding planner!

When to use a QR Code wedding invitation

Here are some situations when using a QR code might be helpful:

  1. When you have a very long URL or website link that you want to share with your guests but don't want them to have to type it out manually.
  2. If you are housing most of the details about the event on your website and need to provide easy access for your guests.
  3. If you require online RSVPs from your guests and don't want them to have to type out a long-form URL.
  4. If you are utilizing an online hotel block booking system, the links for these systems are usually very long and hard to remember or type out manually.
  5. If you want your guests to access additional information about the venue, such as location, directions, dress code etc.
  6. If you have set up a registry page or donation page that you would like your guests to check out quickly without having to look up separate URLs.

 Using QR code wedding invitations provide several advantages, including: 

• Time savings, as guests, can quickly scan the code and instantly RSVP; 

• Paper savings, since an online RSVP does away with physical RSVP cards or envelopes;

  1. Create a wedding website or an online RSVP form for your guests and get the URL. 
  2. Use a free QR code generator to enter the URL and generate the QR code (www.qr-code-generator.com).
