My friend recently had a wedding and all his Save the Dates and Invites were sent through Digital mediums, via email and WhatsApp and RSVP’s and MENUS where posted on their Wedding Website. I thought it was awesome and a way cheaper alternative to printing them using the post especially with most of his friends and family scattered all over the world. He spent less than $16 on both his invites and save the dates using a site https://www.lamaisondeslena.com/save-the-date, where you instantly download stationary and edit in the details on your computer. *They had the option of printing their stationary but decided to stick to digital.
What do you think of this? Traditional VS Digital? They also posted their wedding pictures onto their wedding website which was cool, we can always go to it and scroll through them with a special password of cause.
Would you also do this?

No, too many of our guests are not computer literate. Besides I personally love paper and receiving mail.

I think we may go digital for our wedding. Paper products aren’t really a priority to me and as a guest I always feel bad throwing out the invitations that I know were so expensive for the bride and groom. For the very old guests I think twe may do some paper but digital for everyone else. That said, my fiance is very digitally savvy and does web development work so I think we’ll still be able to make it look nice and polished. We’ve having a destination wedding anyhow so I imagine our family and friends will be spending more time on our wedding website to figure out accomidations, things to do, etc.

We sent digital save the dates to everyone we were confident were digitally literate (Group A) and sent mailed ones to people we were less confident about (Group B). The Save the Dates were linked to our website, with the link and everything.
For invites I’ll send paper ones to everyone, but Group A will only be given an online RSVP option and bare bones info (date, time, address) invites. Group B will have a paper RSVP option and an additional sheet with separate info (directions since they don’t use Google maps…). I’ll also send additional electronic invites to Group A for convenience.

I like getting mail. Plus, it was nice to have a physical copy of our STD and invitations as keepsakes.

I was planning on going digital to save costs, but we decide to make our own invites and print using a third party instead. We still kept costs way down. I’m talking $330 for STD, and invite/details card/rsvp bundles.
We had an online rsvp on our wedding website for those that wanted to use that option but mailed everyone hard copies, too.
I personally love getting mail and I know not all of my guests are the most computer literate.

We did digital Save the Dates, have a wedding website, and digital agendas (destination wedding). We did do printed invitations (mainly for the grandmas to keep in their scrapbooks). I adore having digital – you can always take the JPEG/PDF to a printer have a handful done up if you want a few physical copies.

This is obviously a plug for that site.
