MzJynxie: I think they are only a thing for people with buckets of money.

As a guest, if I received one of these I’d be mildly interested up until I realized that I couldn’t stick it on my fridge.

I think this may be one of the dumbest ideas I’ve ever seen. Sorry to anyone who ordered these, I’m sure they are crazy expensive and they remind me of something Kim Kardash would do.

Guests don’t give a shit about invitations and the vast majority end up in the landfill. I totally get wanting nice invites and I’m even on board with spending a decent amount of money on them but these are completely frivolous. Having one made for yourself to keep would be nice but giving one to every guest/couple is insanely stupid.

It makes me weirdly nervous that they can’t be recycled… and I’m not even a huge recycler, just the basics.
It isn’t the expense that bothers me, as someone who spent a ton on invites, but just.. it’s plastic!

pretty expensive for something that will get thrown in the garbage…

julies1949: Yep, I’m one of those people who whether or not I could afford it…I’m not sure I could justify it though.
Lily_of_the_valley: It does seem a detail suited for a glamorous or “hollywood” themed event. But Kim actually had a pretty simple invite for the upcoming one anyway.
likewoah: And I wonder how sturdy they are too? Can they get damaged during shipping? Maybe not the stainless steel ones, but what about the others?

Postage would be more than with paper invitations too. Seems excessive, like so many other wedding related things available nowadays.

soooooooooo… a) these aren’t actually that expensive. you can find a retailer on alibaba to do that at about the same cost (or cheaper! yay me!) that would pay for invites from a paper shop. b) comments… judgy much? although they may seem excessive… i think they are a nice thought and I actually may give them in lieu of favors which also for most people end up in landfills. so… yea. c) For those of you who are going to pay for those padded bi-fold or tri-fold envelopes… these cost the exact same to mail. d) I wouldn’t do it for a barn wedding, but if you want to set the tone for a black tie event… there isn’t a classier way to do it.

I have seen these and don’t particularly care for them. But then, I tend to prefer more natural material, in general, so that makes sense. They also are more expensive to mail because they don’t bend.

I think they are really pretty. #5, 6 and 8 are styles that I would consider.
NYE2014: I 100% agree.
I think it is a nice way to set the tone for a formal event and make your guests feel special. I would be sooooo excited if i received an invitation like this for ANY event lol

NYE2014: No judging but… why would anyone want to take something with your wedding date and venue etc as a favour? What would they possibly use it for? call me confused! lol

I would laugh if someone told me a plastic wedding invitation was my favor. Like, full on laugh.
<br />ETA: I could see this being done for *maybe* the bride and groom as a keepsake plus their parents if they were into that. Any more than three or four of these is a bit ridiculous to me.
