I have to admit that invites are one of several areas in which I seem to be missing the bridal gene. Apparently the average bride spends £700 on wedding stationery, which seems like an awful lot to me – surely that’s £700 that could be better spend on Champagne or shoes?
I’m all for sending out nice thank-you cards, but stories I’ve read about brides who obsessively match the colour of their hand-made invites to their dresses both confuse and scare me in equal measures…
So Alex and I decided to computerise our invites and email rather than post them (and my mum would then make a couple for non-computer literate Grandparents). We figured it was slightly more environmentally friendly, cheaper, and also far less effort, leaving us to spend more of our energy on grappling with the guest list.
However, that’s as far as we’ve got! Has anyone done this before, or is there a company you’d recommend? We’d love to know, as the clock is ticking!
