    For everything I need, it costs $270 for invites, postage, and thank you cards, for about 125 people. there is no reason to not send a real card. It costs less than $1 to send, and I am sure that is doable. No excuse.

    I think if you go digital on this, you should do it for a reason other than that it takes less time/effort/money.

    Someone mentioned the groupon above, and I think that takes the money factor out of the equation.  So guests (especially those that equate hand-written with time and care) will assume that you simply didn’t want to make the effort.

    Now… the exception to this is if you do something really cool with the digital.  For example, what if instead of sending Thank You emails, you sent Thank You videos?  You and your new hubby chatting about how much you loved seeing that person at the wedding, and how much you love their gift…  See, that’s something you *can’t* do in a physical card… which might make it unique and special.
