I won’t be ordering invites any time soon since my wedding isn’t for over a year, but I started just browsing some to get ideas.
It’s a little overwhelming looking at all the pockets, inserts, etc. Is an informational instert ‘required’? My plan was to put all the detailed information (accommodation options, travel options since 90% of guests will be from out of state, etc) on our website, and have guests RSVP through the website as well.
Is there anything wrong with putting the venue, venue address, date, and time, and the usual “So-and-so request the honor of your presence . . .”, and then at the bottom, something like: “Kindly RSVP through our website, website.com, by X Date. Also, please reference our website for accommodations, travel information, and much more!”
Or is there a reason I’m missing that I would need an insert? I know some folks are not Internet-savvy, but I talked with my mom about it and she said enough of her relatives are tech-savvy that those who aren’t would just call her or somebody else to get the info. She seemed pretty confident they could all at least access a website.
Please let me know if I’d be inadvertently committing a gross breach of etiquette by doing this. It just seems like many wedding invites have so many gosh darn pieces of paper!
I’m putting a lot of work into the website with detailed information on how to find the best deals on flights, rental cars, etc, specifically because many of my mom’s side do not travel often and would probably not know how to use all the travel sites many of my generation take for granted. My intent is to make the website “mom-proof,” in that my mom could, without help, use it to lock everything on, hah. She’s my litmus test. 🙂
