Picking the invitations is a classic part of any wedding movie and an important decision in real weddings as well.
However there’s been a rising trend in using electronic invites for weddings, and personally I love it!
That is… As long as it’s done right. Facebook events probably aren’t the way to go since it is a bit too formal, and people probably won’t know how official it is.
The best way to do evites is using a website like Paperless Post where you can customize your invitations to like just like a paper version, and the best part is that it can be completely free (though there are premium options and a recipient limit of 2000).
You will probably spend over $1,000 on invitations if you send the real thing. Plus you have to count on people sending them back in a timely fashion, and following up with a phone call when you don’t hear back. Evites are an easy way to keep track, send reminders to your guests, and make it easy to send out reminders and additional information when you need to!
And hey, what happens to those hundreds of paper invites after the wedding? They probably end up in the trash.
