This is a question typically asked by would-be brides and grooms or wedding planners who want a hassle-free event they can remember for all time.
After all, QR Codes can provide guests with more detailed information, allow them to respond to your invitation promptly, and help them find the wedding location faster.
Since information on QR Codes can be edited in a split second, couples can make changes anytime, anywhere. And because invitees can RSVP immediately, you can prepare a reception budget for a specific number of guests.
There are 3 types of QR Codes you can create for your wedding RSVP:
Landing page QR Code
Calendar QR Code
Form QR Code
We’ve outlined the steps for each option below.
Method 1: Create a landing page QR Code
A QR Code landing page is a kind of QR Code that, when scanned, opens a specific landing page that you had created using Beaconstac’s DIY landing page builder. You can use these QR Codes to let your wedding guests access multiple sources of information from a single landing page. For example, you can share the date and time of your pre-wedding photoshoot. Then, after the wedding, your guests can still access the photos and videos you uploaded to your landing page.

Step 3. Choose a template from the ones listed or build your landing page from scratch.
Step 4. Customize the content and design it as per your requirements. You can change fonts, colors, and upload images. Moreover, you can also add a form that your invitees can fill out in response to your wedding invitation.

Additionally, you can enable GPS location tracking, add a password, and schedule your campaign.
