hi everyone, i just received an inviattion to my friends wedding in feb 2013. it is destination wedding. the invitation was a card printed back and forth and simply stated that i was invited to the wedding of her and her fiance on this date at this resort. detailed information is provided on the wedding website that they made (they used The Knot's template and it looks amazing) including a section to RSVP online.
i spoke to her about the invite and she informed me that it cost less than $65 for 50 invites, postage and cute envelops stickers. i love the idea but i don't know if people still prefer the traditional invitation.
i just wanted to get your ideas on this more eco-friendly method compared to the traditional invitation. my wedding is in sept 2013. if i sent the invites out 6 months in advance with the link to the wedding website, i could get away with not giving a save-the-date and my guests could always go on the website for more info and to RSVP.
i believe all of my guests are computer savvy and if not at least know their way around a computer or someone who has one.
is this a tacky way of inviting guests to my wedding? with 70 invitations to send, i cannot afford to spend a lot of money on paper and postage that will end up in many of my guest's recycling bins after the wedding. as well, apart from my friend's wedding, i have not received an invite like this and i think it's pretty unique
