Choosing the stationery for your wedding invitations is a key part of your wedding planning, and many brides and grooms will spend hours searching for just the right stationery.
How would you feel about doing away with the stationery altogether, though, and simply sending out an email to invite guests to your wedding? That’s what Waste Awareness Wales would like to see more people doing, saying that it’s just one way to help minimise the environmental impact of a wedding. Wedding and etiquette experts, meanwhile have hit back, arguing that some of the measures proposed “damped the tradition” of the big day.
So, what do you think? Personally I’m all for saving the environment, but I’m not sure email invitations would have worked for me – not least because some of our guests, particularly the more senior members of the two families, don’t have computers, let alone email accounts. And yes, you could invite them by phone, but then you could also use recycled paper for your invitations if you’d rather do things the more traditional way.
