We asked a selection of party organisers: what is the main headache experienced when booking a Christmas Party; and almost without exception the feedback was related to managing guests, their attendance status and their various requirements.
So here at Best Parties Ever we want to help relieve that headache which is why we have been working frantically to implement a rather special Guest List Management area for each booking.
OK, how would you like a system where you can add all your guests (either manually or upload a spreadsheet) - email them all an invitation to your party in a couple of clicks, they RSVP by logging in and ticking the yes or no box - while they are there they can also specify their dietary & accessibility requirements. And then you, the organiser, can sit back and watch your guests manage themselves - you even get an email when people accept or decline the party invite. Does that sound good? Well that's what we've done!
Good question, in a nutshell it allows you to do the following:
No more spreadsheets, no more losing track of who is vegan, vegetarian, halal etc... Everything in one, easy to manage place that you can access anywhere in the world on any web-connected device.
That's the best bit - as soon as you make a provisional booking you can log in at www.bestpartiesever.com/account - view your booking info and you'll see a load more tabs at the top with all the info you need. Just click on Guest List to get started.
If you're still here and haven't already logged into your booking to give it a try then below is just a brief outline of how to use the new Guest List system:
Add a new guest:
Upload multiple guests:
Edit an existing guest:
Send invites to guests:
To send your guests an invite and allow them to login and update their attendance status and dietary requirements click the Email Guests tab at the top, select "Party Invite" from the email templates dropdown, tick each guest you want to send to and then click the Send Email button at the top. If you want to preview the invite or add some of your own text then click the Edit Email, add your own text in the box provided scroll down (or back up) and click Send Email.
And there's more but really it's worth logging in and checking it out yourself - if you don't already have a booking then what are you waiting for? Christmas Parties don't get better then Best Parties Ever!
