    A good friend of mines made her own DVD wedding invites.. I thought the idea was very creative. I'm thinking of doing the same, but a little different as far as whats on the DVD. Has anyone heard of this idea? What do you think?

    I think it would be neat to put like a slidshow on the DVD, then have the wedding invite in powerpoint. We could also make a custom DVD label.

      It's a very cute idea!!!
      I would just check to make sure that everyone has a dvd player or computer that plays them. Some people especially those in older generations aren't totally caught up with modern technology.

        Yeah, I was going to handle that by sending paper invites to some guests...
        I'm sort of surprised that no one talk about doing DVD invites.. I wonder if there is a reason for this?

        sorry because i have no memory of who it was, but someone on here did a video STD, and actually i think they hosted it on YouTube. sending a card to each guest with the youtube address would probably be a much less expensive way to get the same point across :)

        either way, i think its a fun and creative way to make your wedding invites stand out from the crowd.

          Sending out cards with links to you tube is a GREAT IDEA!

          I just don't know what to send the cards in... Also everyone would have to have computers.. Maybe I can email some invites? Is that tacky?

              This is a cute idea - and I like how you still are going to send out regular invites to people who don't have computers like grandparents. I think you should try it!

              I say go for it! For the people you are sending the You Tube link to you could order the free post cards from Vistaprint, slap on a cool picture, and mail them out with the link. That way you don't have to worry about getting envelopes too.
