    It’s a cute idea if you want to spend the extra money go for it! It’s definitely unique. I personally wouldn’t spend the extra money since they will just end up in the trash. This is all stuff you can have on a wedding website.

    I think it’s a huge waste of money.

    Just remember that everyone except your moms will be throwing these away.  I’d save my money if I were you.

    Unnecessary expense- just make a wedding website and they get all that information without you paying a dime.  That’s what we did and honestly I don’t even think all that many people looked at that either.

    If it’s in your budget, go for it.  They are very cute.  But I wouldn’t have bought them — all of that extra info can easily go on a website for free.

    I think these are fabulous!  Destination weddings are so expensive for the guests and what a fun way to give them tips and ideas for their weekend away too!

    I think it’s an unneccesary expense, but I also think if you want to do them and it’s in your budget you should go ahead and do them. Sure people will throw them away, but people spend money on calligraphers to write on envelopes that get thrown out even faster than the invitations do, so go with what you want.

    elovesm:  super cute, but seems totally redundant if you have a website (and I think you should have a website). If they were the same price as traditional invited, then go for it. But it’s pretty much doubling the price so it seems like a waste.

    Too much money, too much twee.

    If you can afford it and you like it then go for it. Just keep in mind that a lot of people might end up throwing them/forgetting them home.

    We looked at these, for my daughter’s wedding, but decided they were too informal. Instead, she bought boxed invitations, through Etsy, that were $10 a piece, plus $2.24 postage (rate a few years ago).  I had two guests tell me they took the boxed invitations into work, to show them around, so I don’t think everyone threw them out.

    Seriously look into the postage situation before buying.  I got square invites and OMG it cost a ton extra!
