Save a Tree
Make your own invitations. Why pay all that money to have an engraved invitation, when the majority of them are going to be posted on a fridge until after the wedding, at which time they will be tossed? Designing your own invitation, and printing it on stock paper is a super alternative, plus you can add your personal flair to it.
Make your invitations the size of the standard envelope, so that it doesn’t require extra postage.
You don’t have to have a separate RSVP card. Put the RSVP directly on the invitation, with your contact information.
Set up a wedding web site. ( www.wordpress.com) is FREE! Your guests can RSVP directly to your site. Include directions to the ceremony and reception gift registry, basically anything you want to communicate to your guests. A wedding web site is where you will add photos of you and your groom’s courting experience, and other interesting things about you.
