Guest post: Save the date the eco way with Paperless Wedding
Although I was always going to have my dream wedding, no matter the cost, I wasn’t willing to blow money on things which weren’t important to either of us. Save the Dates, for example, were not something we spent any time considering. A simple text to our nearest and dearest had our wedding date secured in the important diaries. But, it turns out, there is a middle ground, with Paperless Wedding (www.paperlesswedding.co.uk) offering online save the dates – simple AND eco-friendly!
Handing over the blog to Emma Taylor, of Paperless Wedding…
There are some great Save the Date ideas you can find on the internet. Amazing short videos, photo shoots and quirky gifts with the date stamped on them. All do take time and money and you may want to save that money for the big day.
The other question is, when do you send them? If you are having a wedding abroad, it is good to give as much notice as possible, so people can plan holidays, book flights and find accommodation. Wedding invites usually go out about three months in advance, so you can work it out backwards from there. Remember, you are not expecting people to RSVP to a Save the Date, but it can help you to get a feel for numbers if they do.
I love a bargain. In fact, I am not sure who doesn’t! At Paperless Wedding, we offer FREE digital Save the Dates. We offer this as a stand-alone product, so you can test out the site and see if digital delivery is the way for you. It can be a great way to reach people quickly all over the world, it reduces wastage of paper, carbon emissions and of course saves you cash!
You have the opportunity to choose from our many designs. You can go in and edit the theme so it meets your exact colour theme and style of your wedding. Everything you enter is kept so when you want to create your invitations and wedding website, all the design is ready to go. We also keep your guest list so you can then send the guests the official invitation.
Our aim is to make it as simple and stress-free as possible. We are also saving you a few pounds as well as a tree along the way. You might not have thought you are having a ‘green’ wedding, but now you are! Every little helps!
