Choosing My Online Wedding Invitation: Paperless Post Review

In case you missed it, I'm getting married soon! 

It seemed only yesterday when I was enjoying the ups and downs of the single life, wondering if I would ever find the one

It was a long journey, but God has plans far better than I imagined. 

Fast forward to today, I am stressed out and excited at the same time, planning a small and simple wedding, meeting suppliers, finalizing details, and choosing my online wedding invitation because it's more practical and better for the environment.

Why I chose to go digital?

  • Paper wedding invitations are expensive.
  • All suppliers I've contacted both locally and abroad require a minimum of 50 copies. But, again, this is a small wedding. We don't need 50.
  • People will either throw it away or keep it and forget about it afterward.
  • It will only collect dust or add to people's clutter.
  • We want to help the environment and save a tree.

It was another part of God's beautiful plan that the wonderful people I've worked with before from Anagram Interactive introduced me to this excellent website creating online invitations.

What are the chances?!

Why I like it

Paperless Post is easy to navigate, have expressive and various designs and layouts and even has designer collections (Kate Spade, anyone?).

They have invitations for any holiday or event.

If you have a finished design, you can upload it, customize and send it to your guests using the platform.

You can import Gmail, Yahoo, or AOL mail contacts, create recipient lists, and invite guests.

It's fun that I did not only see wedding invitations and RSVPs. They also have thank you cards, a Bridal shower, bachelorette party, and engagement party invitations.

With RSVP, you can track who's opened your invitation, who's RSVP'd, and who needs a nudge.

So they really have all the cards you need in an online version.

Oh, just check their website and see for yourself.

They also have friendly customer service so it will be easy for you.

Here's the result of me playing around with their Our Big Day design by Crate & Barrel.

You can customize the background. For example, I chose these pretty blossoms.

I changed the envelope color from yellow to rose gold and the stamp to a gray heart.

The lining can also be customized, so I used one that's colorful and dainty.

I enjoyed trying different styles and layouts; I have a few saved on my draft.

Note: These are only samples for your reference. 

The holiday is fast approaching. I'm sure you'll find a card to send your loved ones this season and show your thoughtfulness and creativity even when you're far away---in an efficient and environment-friendly way.

How about you?

Which do you prefer? Online or paper invitation? Why?
