Going Paperless

  |   By Leah Andrew

Let’s talk invitations. Generally, there is a lot of paper involved. If you want to be a little less traditional (and reduce the environmental impact of your wedding), consider going paperless (or at least reduce the amount of paper you’re using) with your invitations.

Going Paperless

This can save you a ton of money, allowing you to save in one area and splurge in another! When I got married, I worked with Love the Card to send out an electronic save the date to ensure friends and family could mark the weekend off in their calendars. Then I set up a wedding website with all of the details of our big day! I used wedquarters.com (but there are lots of options out there) to post where we were registered, how we met, accommodation information and links for out of town guests. Best of all? You can also manage your RSVP process, easily and efficiently, eliminating the need for reply cards. It worked out perfectly and cost less than $100 for everything!

With the money we saved on invitations, we decided to splurge and have real champagne for the evening, which really helped to create an elegant and festive mood! Find more local wedding classifieds, including dress, shoes and accessories, at SmartBride Boutique.
