I initially wanted to send invitations and he wanted just emails.  We both wanted to spend as little as possible.  We found a compromise and used http://www.paperlesspost.com to rave reviews.  The site works better with Firefox than Explorer.

We did email save the dates.  It worked great, but we had to send them in batches less than 10 or some email programs saw them as spam!  We did an embed and an attachment to accomodate the needs of our guests.

We are going to have Email Save the dates, but for the invitations I want to go tangible 🙂

That’s very cute!! But for us that would exclude some older family members that don’t have internet at all, and probably wouldn’t know how to work it if they did!!  So we’re going the tried and true route with paper products.

I think that’s a great idea, and it’s much more green than having paper Save-The-Date Cards and invites.  I wanted to do email Save-The-Date Cards but Fiance really wanted to design and print our own, and since this is one of the things about the wedding he’s really excited about (couldn’t care less about colors, flowers, etc.) we’re going with paper.  🙂  I love that your invites have an envelope, too!  They look great.

Thanks for the suggestion of mypunchbowl.com, will check that out.  We are doing email save-the-dates (was planning to use pingg.com) for most everyone and will call the older relatives that might not be as internet-saavy.  We are still debating electronic vs. print invites (he thinks that his mom, SIL etc will like the keepsake of a printed invite so we might get some recycled art paper and DIY or hopefully find an eco-friendly affordable printer.

I have been invited to a wedding by a PDF email – it was nice and very environmentally friendly!

Your invite looks really classy! Nice find. We are doing paper invites but are having people RSVP via email. So…sort of.
