    The information that’s usually on the suite cards in on our wedding website, can’t get lost! As a guest I prefere to have less that could potentialy get lost.

    crackktheskyy:  I politely disagree with the statement there should be no mention of gifts.  I almost always buy off the registry, so personally I appreciate that info being somewhere, though online is fine (vs in the invite).  I’m buying you a $50-$150 gift, the least you can do is help me figure out where your registry is.  Maybe it’s a regional or cultural thing?  

    As for a single card vs a suite… that’s up to you.  I feel the suite is way more ‘traditional’.  To me, a suite is a waste of money, but to other’s it’s very important.  It’s all how you feel about it.

    HollyGolightly90:  Honestly, I don’t know why I never see folded invitation cards (similar to a birthday card or something). I wish it was more common b/c it’s just much more convenient for me to just hang it on the fridge.

    I agree that invitation suites look a lot nicer, but after the wedding, I toss all wedding invitations in the trash.

    HollyGolightly90:  As a guest I’d rather receive a nice suite any day of the week than something for lack of better words, akin to a pamphlet or flyer.  Emphasis on for lack of better words.

    I’m going to stick the thing on my fridge for a month until your wedding, then toss it-not like it’s getting framed for the Louvre. I am all for less wasted paper and things for me to misplace!

    I like 1 invitation with a wedding website, and 1 reply card.  

    Sometimes it’s fun to get this big package in the mail for wedding invites, but I tend to throw it all in the trash.  The invite gets put on the fridge and I check the website for any info I need.  I find the little map sketches pretty useless.
