Are Printed Invitations Worth it in a Digital World?

Large

Printed invitations are one of the biggest debates newlyweds have while planning their wedding. On one hand, they are a tradition and sending out beautifully designed and printed invitations is not only memorable and something people cherish, but also quite a special experience as you seal every single invitation personally. On the other hand, printing 100+ invitations is costly especially if they are specially designed, not to mention bad for the environment considering how much paper would be used, and also such a hassle to send out. So we’ve decided to ask the question on your mind, are printed invitation worth it?

When planning a wedding invites are a huge part of the process, who to invite, who can I skip, where does everyone sit (not that it matters because everyone eventually sits wherever they want), but you get the picture. As you're doing all of this the question does come up, do you want to print invitations. Now this is a debate because some couples choose to make an event on Facebook and call it a day. Now that’s a choice, but it might make your big day seem too casual, especially if you do not call to follow up with your guest list, and frankly it can come across as quite tacky.

Another option is designing the invitation itself but sending it via email/Whatsapp. Which is considered a good option because you are digitising the tradition, and it can be considered the best of both worlds, but we have a better solution for you. On the Weds360 website, there is a specific segment tool which helps you organise your guest list and even send out the invitations from there. Allowing you to design your invitation via templates or maybe just add the ones you like based off of outside inspiration. Then all you have to do is add the contacts you want to invite and voila, you’ve done your guest list AND invited it as well. 

Although we recognise that might not be enough, if you are the sentimental type, or want people (especially your bridal party) to have something beyond the party favors we have the solution for you. After completing the guest list on the website and inviting them as well, consider printing a few invitations for a few family and friends as a special token. Not only would you be giving them something special unlike the rest of the guests, but you would also save up on printing all the invitations. It really is a win-win, and it seals the deal.
