Wedding invites have started to take a different shape. While some still print wedding cards, yet others have started to think of other ways to invite people. In this, there are 2 categories.
- The ones who want to do elaborate wedding invites.
- The ones who want to keep it simple and go for wedding invitations online.
But all in all printing wedding invites have become an old concept. Here are 5 reasons why going for printed invites is a bad idea.
Waste of paper
At a time when we have understood the importance of the environment, it is important to save some paper. Don’t go for the printed cards since they use up a lot of paper one can imagine. Imagine the number of trees that would get cut to print one card. The worse part is that all these cards go for a waste anyway. All the guests anyway throw it away once the wedding is over.
Eco-friendly wedding invites – These are a good option. Either these are made of recycled paper or they could also be the ones that can be sown to the ground as a plant once it is used.
Yes, once the wedding invites are printed, there is the process of distributing wedding invites. This leads to a lot of air and noise pollution.
Alternative – This is the easiest way to invite someone. It’s easy and all the cards can be distributed from your home itself.
Wedding invitation card makers charge a bomb to print cards. There is so much money involved in the different kinds of wedding invites available. There is money involved in getting sample copies printed. There is money involved in the name stickers. There is money involved in covering the invites with plastic.
Alternative – E-invites are also very reasonable. All you have to do is choose a design, pay for it and then you are sorted.
Availability of so many other options
There are so many other ways guests can be invited to the wedding. If you choose them then you are making a smarter choice because the wedding guests will remember your style of inviting and will also appreciate it because even they are bored of receiving the same old invite all the time.
Mistakes can turn out to be expensive.
To err is human. In the case of wedding invites it will turn out to be expensive. Imagine making a type on the card and then if all of that goes for print. Either you have to get a new set of cards printed or you need to do something to cover up the mistake, which is an additional cost. A recent wedding had used the wrong logo to print on the card. The family in question has to get a badge of the final logo made and stuck on the card. These are unnecessary expenses and don’t need to be done in the case of an E-invite.
So these are the reasons one must go for online wedding invites and not print them as it is not eco-friendly and definitely expensive.
