The fact that you’re reading this blog probably means that I don’t need to remind you about the shift from print media to digital alternatives, but I will – there’s been a shift from print media to digital alternatives.
People read news on tablets and mobiles, books are being replaced by Kindles and Spotify is killing the record shop. The same is true about weddings, rather than overcrowding the invitation envelope with wedding day details, brides and grooms are opting for wedding websites instead. Website really have become a common part of the wedding planning tool kit these days.
With friends and family living in different towns, cities and even countries, it’s likely that you’ll need to give details about the locations, providing directions and postcodes. There are a number of other details that will need to be shared such as; dress code, gift lists and times that you will want to have it all in one place.
It’s true that you can send all of this information with the invitations but it can compromise the invitation design and if your friends are anything like my friends, they’ll need some help organising themselves. Your friends are excited about sharing your wedding with you but they obviously won’t spend as much time thinking about it as you. By giving them a place to access all the information they need they’ll be as informed as you want or need them to be.
