Wedding planning is a stressful undertaking, especially when it includes time-consuming tasks like sending invitations and collecting RSVPs. Collecting the correct addresses for all your guests in a timely and efficient manner can be a big headache, and can often involve lots of unnecessary back and forth over email or text.
What if you could automate this process with a simple solution? QR codes are the perfect tool for you.
QR codes have become increasingly popular for businesses and are now a great tool for personal use such as event planning. Here are a few benefits of using QR codes for this step of your wedding planning process:
Perhaps the best part of creating a wedding QR code is that you can get started for free. Head to Flowcode’s QR code generator and select colors, shapes, and even upload a wedding logo if you have one!
Here are some cool ways to send your QR code out into the world to start getting responses. The beauty of QR codes for weddings is that whichever outreach method you choose with your guests, you can ensure that all your responses are collected and stored in the same place. This eliminates any transfer errors, forgetting addresses, and lots of copy and pasting.
If you’ve already gotten started on your wedding website, simply create a QR code to match your wedding theme and colors and place it prominently on your website homepage. You can also add a short message or instruction to encourage your guests to scan the code and access your wedding information.
Include your QR code in your announcement or save-the-date email and prompt your guests to share their address information for a formal invitation to follow.
For a more personal or casual touch, you can spread your QR code on messaging apps like iMessage, WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, or Messenger. This way instead of individually saving each address during your outreach, all the addresses will be collected in the same spreadsheet.
You can post your QR code as a photo or a video and use hashtags or captions to invite your followers to scan it and join your wedding celebration. Maybe not all your followers are being invited, so you could always explore making a private account for your special day as a way to share information and updates.
This one’s easy. If all your attendees share a common space or will be attending a similar event, place a QR code in the space to quickly and passively get responses.
Now that you’ve figured out how you’ll get guests to scan your QR code, you need to settle on a collection method to store this information. Here are three excellent ways to collect addresses from your QR code for your wedding and have them easily organized:

Form response platforms like Typeform, Google Forms, or Survey Monkey are also wonderful for collecting addresses for weddings. You can link your wedding QRs to online forms that ask your guests to fill out their addresses and any other details.
Another way to collect addresses for weddings is by using a wedding response platform like Minted, The Knot, Zola, or WeddingWire.
