    Not usually. They're pretty/I know how much they cost/how much work they are. : (7 votes)

    I will usually toss it shortly after the wedding. I don’t like clutter lol

    I kept one once as inspiration for mine, but now mine wont be anything like it!

    I usually have them on my fridge until the event, and then after that – round file!

    I have never kept a wedding invite.. bad huh? heheh I guess the only one’s that I would keep are for when my sisters get married. Other than that, trash can it is!

    I try to keep them but after a few months I throw them away, that’s why I’m not trying to spend a lot on mine and doing semi-DIY ones

    I am with mander411 — no clutter!  Though I clicked “it depends” because I was making a scrapbook last year so I kept two that we went to in 2009 for the book. 

    One of my friends couldn’t bear to throw out my wedding invitation, so she mailed it back to me (I guess she felt guilty)… so I threw it out!  Waste of a stamp on her part. 🙂

    I usually throw them away as soon as I send back the RSVP card.

    I will say though, that if the invite was from one of my best friends or a close family member, I would keep it 🙂

    I absolutely hate clutter so I usually keep them until the wedding has occured and then I throw them out.

    I said it depends, often I keep them on my fridge for a while, but eventually they get tossed (after the wedding) to make room for new ones. When it came time to do my own invites though, I did mine more for myself I guess, I wanted to do something I felt was neat, even though of course I know most will get thrown away! That’s why I did the DIY route though, much cheaper than getting letterpress or something!

    This poll is the exact reason why I am skeptical about spending huge amounts on invites….

    They hang on the fridge until the wedding, then end up in the garbage!

    They stay on my fridge until the wedding, then they normally come with me to the wedding if they have any important information on them (directions, etc.) and then otherwise I toss them once I get to the wedding or might bring them home and keep them with my important papers/photos if the person is particularly important to me.
