Electronic Invitations? Feedback Please?

Recommended Posts

Hi There!

 

We are thinking of doing all our Save the Date / Invitations, etc. with email & a customized website (my finance is a designer). This is simply because we want to stay as GREEN as possible as well as being on a fairly tight budget... I've never been one to keep a wedding invitation that I've had, and certainly have no expectation that someone else keep mine... and don't want to be wasteful... especially during these "economic times".

 

My question - is this completely tacky? Or in this day and age do you think it's acceptable? Would love to hear some feedback!

 

Thank you so much... I also really love the boarding pass or passport ideas that many of you have done... just wondering about our initial idea of doing it all online!

 

I appreciate it!

Jenna

I think it is a great idea. So many rules with invites, why not be different. Green is the new way. we are doing our rsvp's electroniclly. Going gree is great and it also saves postage and $$$$. Just make sure to print some on paper for those elders that don't have the tecnology. =)

I posted a thread about this a week or so ago. I'm doing a website and word of mouth only and I don't think it's tacky. The consensus I got was that it's your wedding do what you want!

 

I personally much prefer to get stuff electronically rather than in the mail. I throw mail away, I don't throw my emails away.

I personally think it's an awesome idea!! I know how much I spent in just postage alone to send out my Save the Dates, and I only made up and sent out 49....

Green is the way to go, and I am so for that! I say go for it.

 

But again like other said, you may have to print up a couple 'std/invites' for those who don't have access to a computer/technology etc.

well, it depends if your guests, esp. your parents and grandparents find it all right. i am old school n like to have a more semi- formal approach to my wedding so i personally would not do that.

I do not think it's tacky at all! That being said, I agree with the others that not a lot of people are very technically literate or are more traditional and may be offended by not getting a 'formal paper' invitation. Absolutely, check with your family to make sure that is not the case ... and if it is and you still want to go green; make the paper invitations as green as you possibly can by using friendly paper and inks.

Hi!

We just did this.... we invited over 50 people to our Jamaica wedding via e-mail & our wedding website. We got A LOT of positive comments... however, we did run into a "handful" of people who did not have e-mail. Grandmothers, old family friends... so I am printing my own invites now for them. I am making 20. Now that I am making these, my family is saying they would each like one for a "keepsake". So I may make a few more...

 

Good luck!!

I love the idea of sending electronic invites and STD. I do like the idea however of sending paper invites maybe to your older relatives who prefer the paper invite. Michaels has the "Brides" collection of invites which are beautiful and come in 20 or 30 and with a 50% off coupon you end up paying $15+/- for your invites and you get to print them yourself.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
