Invitations :: Paperless Post

To cut costs, you can cut the wedding invitations. Companies such as Evite allow you to invite your guests without having to address or mail a since paper invite. The invitation styles can range from super cheesy to semi-formal. Since this service is free, it can be bogged down by obnoxious advertisements and blinky links. It might be a good alternative to the email invitation, but is it formal enough for a wedding? Another company, Paperless Post offers the same service as Evite, but creates a more formal environment. Customizable designs that reflect the style of your wedding can help portray the formality of the event. No advertisements will scream across your screen, as there is a small fee for each “postage stamp” you use on an invitation. The first 25 stamps are free, each additional is about 0.08 cents. In comparison, the average wedding invitation costs 0.61 cents.

I signed up for the free service and “made” my invitation. It was extremely simple to set up and word my Summer Soiree. Once I completed the steps, my invitation was ready for delivery.

My invitation pops up!

After I email my invitation to all my guests, I can keep track of my guests’ replies with the tracking tool. I can even remind the guests of the RSVP deadline. Remember, bad RSVP etiquette is never flattering.

Is this something you whoudl use for an event such as a wedding? Or do you prefer the romance of a paper invitation?

I think it’s a great idea to cut costs, but there is still something special and classic about a paper invitation, especially for a wedding. I would maybe consider doing this for a “Save the Date” and then do paper invites for the actual invitations. What do you think?

Wedding is one of the occasions that is really important in a woman’s life. There is no doubt that a couple will do anything just to make this day a very special one, but even they want to make it special still there is a point that they also want it not be that expensive , so this post of yours was really a great help, a couple will not just only cut cost but still they can have their invitation as beautiful as they want and they will be sure if their guest can come because they will be able to reply in the invitation also through e-mail.

I love the invitation! It’s so classic and modern. I love the simplicity of the design as well. The wedding invitation may be the only thing people, who cannot attend the wedding, will see and it must reflect the style of the wedding they will miss. . I love this design and color combination. Thank you for sharing with us.
