Digital Invites yes or no?

Laura, 27 of September of 2023 at 15:27 Posted on Etiquette and Advice 2 8

Digital Invitations, yes or no? I feel they are more sustainable, easier to send as I don't know half the addresses and linkable to the wedding website for RSVP?

    Totally depends on your guest list. If we'd done digital, we would have had to wipe out 1/3 of our guest list from the start!

    We did digital Save the dates, and will have digital RSVP's ( with a few exceptions for the older generations) but will be sending out the invites formally. What feels right for you depends on you, your guests, and the feel of your day.

    We wanted to create paper invitations, but also save money in this area, so we only made 15 copies for VIP VIP family and friends (our total guests were around 50, inc. children.)

    Everyone else received a digital invite through our wedding website. None of the people who received a paper invite would have talked with those with only a digital invite, so this wasn't an issue. It worked well for us and I'm glad we made a few Smiley smile

    I sent paper invites but it's really down to your preference and your guests. Perhaps you could send digital save the dates and then paper invites?

    My uncle and his wife sent digital invites. The only people I'd send paper invites to are those who struggle with technology. So for me it would be my grandparents and older aunts and uncles. Everyone else would get digital.

    Hi,

    We are totally going to do digital everything. Most of the family we will be inviting is coming from abroad and I do not even want to think about costs to send invites to multiple different countries, and then there is the aspect of having to figure out everyone's address and that is a hassle.. So yeah digital is the way to go to be honest, unless you really want to splurge on the invites and it is within your budget, or you can only do some for your immediate family and everyone else can get digital. Honestly do whatever you have the budget for and don't stress it too much.

    For me there are more important things to spend money on than a piece of paper that will go in the trash because no one will really save it for keepsakes unless it is my mom (maybe even she will toss it out). So I would put that money to better use.

    I’ve recently been having this debate!


    In the end we went basic invites for day guests with QR to wedding website for all the information and just the link to the evening guests. Most our day guests are older family so they like a good traditional invite or card! The QR to website is really useful to ensure all the information is one place and can provide them with so much more information than an invite could ever

    I think it's fine. You can always print up a few for the grandparents/aunts/unlcles who would mind. But for younger generation they'd probably prefer digital so it can't get lost
