Tradition: There's something to be said for tradition. Nowadays, it's rare to get a personalized piece of mail outside of a bill in your mailbox! Some guests even hold onto invitations for sentimental reasons.
Photography: We love the details of paper goods (including invitations!) especially when being captured by the photographer on the day of the wedding.
Custom Pieces: Letterpress, watercolor, fonts, paper type and more. It can be a fun and exciting experience to create a unique paper invitation suite that’s yours.
Collecting Addresses: Keeping tack of family and friend’s addresses is not everyone’s forte! Hunting them down can take manpower and time.
Expense: Some paper goods and design services can come with a premium. For some couples, the cost doesn’t figure into the budget.
Mailing: Weighing, purchasing postage and assembly. If not provided by your designer, they can take time and add a cost to handle printing and posting...especially when there’s a big to-do list to get to!
Time: Automatically save RSVPs. Easily keep track of, sort and share your RSVPs with your caterer and event planner.
Savings: For all of the capabilities included like RSVP tracking, immediate updates, access to guests and more, digital services are less expensive than printed invitations.
Green: Taking care of the earth is never a bad thing. Every little bit counts when reducing carbon footprint!
Spam: The dreaded junk folder. You may not know if your invitation was received and typos can cause invitations to go to the wrong person! Remember to double check email addresses.
Formality: Some feel the digital invitations are less formal and suggest that the wedding is also less formal. There are even times guests can neglect to respond to the invitation or file it and forget it.
Limited Services: Not all digital invites are created equal. It’s worth doing some research or checking out our faves below...
