natasha0b :   I do not keep them. I have kept a few cards I have received over the years … no invites. Usually cause of hand written inscription from my great grandma etc.

natasha0b :  if they are close to me, I keep them, preferably in an album with some wedding pics.  I’ve seen (only on the bee) the acrylic ones and no way would I want that helping to clutter my house. If it can’t fit in a book, I’m not hanging onto it.

I keep them in a drawer in my kitchen until the event, and then I throw them away.  The only ones I have actually saved are my own, and my sister’s.

No. We live in a small home and with me growing up with semi-hoarders, and fiance wanting to hoard EVERYTHING due to being sentimental… everything goes. I mean I am sentimental too but want my space too. It starts adding up faster than you think.

natasha0b :  i do keep them if they are really nice ones on luxury paper  or a close friend, yes. its a memory of a great day. if it is not a close friend or the invites are not super fine, then i bin them.  what i almost always keep is if they give out little prayer cards / memorial cards the size of a credit card at the end of the ceremony. i love those. i never keep the save the dates.

Fridge then trash. When I was younger I might’ve kept it, but now that I’m older, I realize it’ll sit in a box for decades and I’d never even look at it again.

I don’t keep them after the wedding, but it doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate them. Wedding invites to me are just as important as any other piece of decor in that they set the tone for your wedding and communicate a level of formality, a theme, or a general aesthetic to your guests. If that’s not important to you, totally fine, but I see them as of similar importance to like, table decor or having nice escort cards. They’re just a piece of the wedding picture

I like framing them as a wedding gift 🙂

I keep them on my fridge until after the wedding in case I need to reference it again, and then I toss it.
