When it comes to planning your wedding, your wedding invitation is one of the most important pieces. The first hint to your guests about what your wedding will be like (casual vs. formal, themed vs. traditional, etc.), your wedding invitations also give guests all of the information they need – the when, the where, and, of course, the who.
And, while many couples still think of the invitation in very traditional ways, it’s good to remember how much the world has changed even just in the last decade. With more and more of your guests spending time online and connected digitally, updating your invitation so that it’s “plugged in” with this world is more than just a nice gesture – it’s a smarter way to do wedding invitations altogether.
Today, couples planning their wedding should consider using a wedding invitation website.
First of all, online wedding invitations are both entertaining and interactive. Instead of having your guests mail in RSVPs (which consistently get lost or forgotten), they can quickly RSVP online, which means you get notified instantly as soon as they do. Wedding invitation websites also give you the advantage of adding special features, like giving your guests the ability to request songs they want to hear at your reception.
Secondly, online wedding invitations give you (a lot) more room to convey all of the important information you need. While printed invitations are limited to a certain amount of lines, online wedding invitations can include everything you need and all in one place – no pesky inserts required. And, if you’re planning on sending out Save the Date cards in addition to your wedding invitations, then using a wedding invitation website makes it much more affordable.
But, one of the biggest advantages to using a wedding website is that it makes your wedding planning and preparation that much easier. Online wedding invitations put you directly in touch with your guests, which means that any updates or requests can be sent out instantly – no wait time or concerns with something getting lost in the mail.
Some wedding websites, like My Wedding Online, even allow your guests to upload pictures they took from your wedding, which means everything ends up in one place and in one, easy-to-see gallery. You can even add photos from your honeymoon on the same website so that you stay in touch with all of your guests.
Fully customisable, you will be glad you choose a wedding invitation website for your big day!
