How to Invite Your Guests

With Joy, you have several ways to invite guests to your event including via eCards, paper invites, as well as via the mobile app and any messaging service you choose.


You can send more formal correspondence in the form of beautiful eCards, such as Save the Dates, Invitations, Change the Dates, and Custom Cards via email.

If you decide to send eCards through Joy, you can use one of our dozens of themes to match your website. To learn more about how to send eCards through Joy, read about the process in this helpful article!

Paper Invites

If you want to send printed invites to your guests, you’ll want to be sure to include your Joy URL and password, if your site is password protected. We partner with two companies, Paperlust and Paper Culture, who offer matching prints for some of our design. To find out if your design is available for print, click on the Send icon from the admin dashboard, then Save the Dates, Invitations, Change the Date, or Custom Cards. If your selected Design is available for print you’ll see the option to ‘View and Order’ under Printed Stationary.

Mobile App and Messaging Service

You can also invite guests conveniently from the Mobile App and any messaging service you use!

When you log into your event from the Mobile App, navigate to the bottom of the screen where you will see a menu icon. Click on Menu to access your settings page. From there, click Share Event to begin the process of inviting your guests and sharing the details of your event with them.

A Share this Event pop-up section will appear at the bottom of your mobile screen that will reveal your website URL and password. Right below the URL and the password, you’ll see an option to Send Invite.

When you click Send Invite, you’ll be prompted to choose the method with which to send your URL and password (text, email, etc.). Once you choose your preferred method, you’ll see that Joy automatically produces a message that reads:

“You are invited to [first name of Partner 1] & [first name of Partner 2]’s wedding on Joy. Join using the link [site URL]
Event Password: [event password]

Of course, feel free to customize the message to your heart’s content so that it sounds like your voice or to personalize it for the guest you’re inviting! Once you’re happy with it, send it off to your phone or email contacts or through any other messaging service you wish.
