I am inviting families and couples. How can I ensure an accurate guest count?

Last Updated: Aug 03, 2018 12:49PM EDT
Party City offers a new way to manage families and couples on your guest list, the Connect Guests feature. Connect your guests if you are:
  • Inviting a family to your event including children
  • Inviting a couple
  • Inviting a family or couple and you don't have the email address for all members

Now you can connect and build families and couples right on your guest list! Guests will see who else in their family is invited, and can even RSVP for them. This keeps your guest count highly accurate.

To get started, just click the Connect icon next to the guest you want to connect.
Need more info? Follow along with this example:

1 - You're inviting the Smith family to your event, so you add Jim and Jane (the parents) to your guest list. To create the Smith family, click the Connect icon:

2 - Type the family name, then click "in the "Members" section to add Jim to the family:

3 - Once you start typing Jim's name, the auto-fill will find him.  Select him to add him to the family:

4 - To add Jim and Jane's kids, go back to the Members section and enter their names, leaving the email field empty.  In this example, their kids are Timmy and Tommy.

5 - Once you've added both children click "Save" to finish the family.  Now "The Smith" family is created in your guest to invite list!

6 - When Jim or Jane receive the invitation, they can respond for themselves, or for the whole family!
