Put a Stamp on It

Put a Stamp on It

How are you planning on inviting guests to your wedding? If you’re like a growing number of Americans, your invite will probably have a .html attached to it instead of a stamp.

At Evite.com, users sent out 1.2 million wedding invites this year, up more than 60% from last year. Brides and grooms are also employing other non-traditional means like mass e-mails, MySpace messages and Facebook invites.

Carly Lane told USA Today that she received a very impersonal invite via Facebook from a friend she hadn’t seen in three years. "I like Facebook invites, but I use them for, like, beer-keg pre-parties [football tailgates]," the 25-year-old says.

If you feel like an electronic invitation is your best option when you’re planning a wedding, then by all means, got for it. But if you’ve got the time and the money, why not invest them in some paper and stamps? Nowadays people can go a whole year without receiving a piece of mail that isn’t a bill or a throwaway catalogue, so its nice to receive a beautiful personalized invitation.

Will you go electronic or old school for your wedding invitations? If you went electronic, did your guests like it? [USA Today]
