Same as PP.  I keep them until the wedding and throw them out afterwards.

I keep them for the minute it takes to enter all the details in my Google calendar 🙈

Gets tossed eventually.  I suppose I would keep one of my own as a keepsake, but otherwise no.  Keep it until I no longer need the info on it and then it gets tossed.  I suppose for those that like to keep them, it’s maybe akin to those who keep concert ticket stubs?  I just don’t see the point – I have the memory of the actual concert (wedding).

The information is put in my calendar and I make a note of the website and then I trash it

ETA:  I have stainless steel appliances, so I can’t put it on my fridge.  Maybe that’s a reason.   Who knows

I enjoy stationery and can appreciate and remember invitations. I kept my own and still have the immediate family invitations in scrapbooks and albums. Before my own wedding I held onto examples of particularly beautiful invitations and calligraphy for my own reference. Now, I keep invitations displayed until after a wedding, and that’s it.

I enter the details into my calendar then toss the paper in the recycling.

I put them on the fridge until the wedding. Then if it’s someone like family, I keep the invite

I used to keep invites if they were from someone special or family.

I keep it on my fridge until the wedding and then throw it away. When I was really young and my friends first started getting married I kept them but now I think they’re just useless clutter.

My Fiance and I keep them. We are sentimental like that though… we only keep the ones from weddings that were people close to us though.
