What is Good About an Email Wedding Invitation?

Aug 18, 2007
With the advance in internet technology, you can contact your friends and relatives overseas easily via email. One question more and more couples ask is the possibility of using email as wedding invitation. It will be quite a difficult decision whether to have a physical invitation or not. The pros of an email wedding invitation will be discussed so that you may get a better idea.

Save Money

This may be the most essential point of using an email wedding invitation. An email wedding invitation costs you nearly nothing. Comparing with making physical wedding cards, you may need to spend at least a few hundred dollars. And there is nearly no cost for sending an email.

In some cases you may still want a professional designer to design the layout of your email invitation for you. This will certainly cost you some money. However, the amount should still be considerably smaller than the cost of printing physical wedding cards.

Save Time

Using an email invitation does not only save your time, but also save the time of your guest. You will not need to approach different shops in order to have your wedding cards printed. Besides, you can just sit in front of the computer and send the email. You do not need to go to the post office to send your invitations.

For the guests, they can also reply you by email, without visiting the post office to mail the RSVP. If your guests are always online, they may even find an email invitation a lot better than a physical wedding invitation since they can get your wedding invitation conveniently.

Put as much information as you need

A physical wedding invitation is usually only a card and there is limited space for you to put the information and details of your wedding on it. If you want to put maps and directions into the invitation, you may need to order a separated card for that.

With an email you will virtually have unlimited space. You can put as much information as you need into the email. And as what the first point stated, it will not cost you any extra even if you want to put more information into the email.

Include different URL links for your guests' reference

This idea is in fact elaborated from the above notion of putting information. It will be not an easy task for you to tell the guests information about details such as accommodations and points of attractions near the wedding venue. You will probably need to make a booklet of ten pages in order to tell your guests different choices of accommodations and different points of attractions.

If you are sending your invitation via email, you can include links of websites on the accommodations so that your guests can make better choices. Besides, you can also include links of websites of the tourism board in the place you are having your wedding so that your guests can also have a better understanding about the place they will visit.
