Go Paperless or Go Home: E-Vites


Are e-invitations tacky or ‘with the times’? We’ve been asked several times by readers if an e-save-the-date or e-invitation is acceptable or too far from tradition — and we say nothing’s off the table! From e-vites to honeymoon registries, modern-day couples are making decisions that fit who they are, their lifestyles and personalities.

E-vites have some benefits that inarguably make them an enticing paperless stationary option:

  1. They’re AFFORDABLE, free even. You may have to pay a one-time fee for the design you choose, but opting for an e-vite would save you a sizable chunk of change. Stationary is expensive, even for basic styles. Every little embellishment and upgrade will cost you, not to mention paying for postage and return postage for your RSVPs.
  2. They’re TIMELY: If you’re crunched for time, an e-vite might be the way to go. Not only will you get your date on your friends’ and families’ books ASAP, but you will also receive RSVPs immediately, which is crucial for finalizing details in a tight time frame.
  3. They’re EASY to ORGANIZE: Forget filing papers and cards like a secretary. Make folders right in your inbox to sort replies as they come in, and voila! Instant organization minus the paper trail.

Here are a few e-vites we love. For more options, check out our favorite e-vite site paperlesspost.com.
