    A few things to note:
    • Once launched, an event may be rescheduled up to 3 times at no additional cost.
    • Invitations may still be edited after the event has been launched. An Event Plan Expansion may need to be purchased if the number of invitations on the event is already at the limit of the Event Plan.
  • Tag Guests

    Tags provide a convenient but powerful means of flagging and categorising your guests. For example, you could create a tag called "vegetarian" and attach the tag to guests who will require a vegetarian meal. Learn more.
