i got a call from my fiance who asked me if i wanted to go to Las Vegas in Jan. seeing as we're getting married in sept, i really didn't think it was in out budget but since i'm a sucker for travelling, i said yes....with slight hesitation. when i asked him why, he told me his cousin texted him today and told him she was getting married in vegas!. About 2 months away and no invites whatsoever, just a call or text to the important people in her lives..that was the invite.
funny thing is, when i heard this, i didn not get offended or upset that i did not get an actual invite in the mail. that got me thinking about my own invite battles (to give everyone a heads up, my battle is between mailing invites with a card to direct my guests to my wedding website where they can rsvp and get wedding info such as maps, accommodation, local attraction info etc.. OR mail invites with all the inserts, rsvp envelops, the whole kit and caboodle)
i decided to go with the online rsvp invitation. people HAVE to know how to use a computer or know someone who knows how to use a computer in these times that we're living in. i'm not asking people to enter or generate html codes, just to enter a website link.
i also realized that by choosing the online rsvp cards, i end up saving over $200 in paper!!
i know i'm taking a risk but people will have to get over it eventually.
if someone is going to get offended that i did not send them a $5 invite that they will trash before or after my wedding then they don't have enough to do in this demanding complex world.
just felt like i had to share this
