Digital Invitations

Paperless Post or Greenvelope Review

Considering going electronic on invitations?

I must admit I’m a huge sucker for beautiful stationery but I also talk a lot about choosing your big 3 -5 items and then 3-5 that you don’t care to spend budget on –  and honestly how many invitations have you actually kept instead of ditching (especially after watching Marie Condo)?

Save the Date’s, Engagement Parties, Hens Nights, Bachelor Parties, Wedding gift notes and Wedding Invitations all need beautiful designs to send out to your guests that reflect the theme and style of your events. Then RSVP lists need to be followed up with, compiled and tallied. Not to mention tracking dietary requirements, plus ones and who gave you what for Thank You Cards (that everyone forgets about for months later). Make these all simple, uniformly and easier online using one of these two online websites:

Greenvelope v. Paperless Post

My review on two online digital engagement and wedding invitation apps transforming the wedding stationery game.

Greenvelope

For our engagement party, I chose Greenvelope because I found it quick to learn and liked a few of their customisable designs.

I love colour and wanted them to be different to our wedding invitations so used a different theme – a bit moodier being a September engagement.

Making our online engagement invites was actually really fun! I trialled a few ideas for our wedding invite’s too but I ended up getting them handwritten by a calligrapher and printed them all myself (hand-feeding handmade paper into a printer 200 times was fun… not). My Aunty also painted a beautiful design for them but seriously for something this inexpensive I would have been pretty happy with these e-vites for the wedding too!

Pricing: You pay depending on how many e-vites you send, and prices are roughly just over $1 per invite which includes you making the design. There are also premium options and have a design team if you want to pay extra for something more personalised and unique.

I found their backend was a bit harder to navigate and fewer designs I liked but I think their designs have improved since then and a lot of my friends have used them. They have a phone and iPad app.

Pricing: PP’s pricing structure was a little more complicated as you have to buy ‘Coins’ which are then used to buy packages. I recommend only buying coins at the end when you know exactly how many invites you need to send and how many coins you will need.

They do have a free option that doesn’t include any premium options.

The Pro’s and Con’s to go digital with your wedding invitations

Pros:

Thank everyone easily

No stamps

Quicker RSVP REsponses

Better response rate – less chasing up

Automatically reminds people who haven’t responded

Automatically sends updates and reminders

Cons:

Possibly not as personal

No keepsake for people’s fridges although I think there is actually an option to print them too

Printing options like foiling and blind embossing options while there aren’t quite as beautiful as in real life

You can’t touch them – I also can’t photograph them in your detail shots the morning of the wedding – but you could always print one copy!

Let me know what your thoughts are – did you use a different e-vite company?

Not only is @katedrennanphotography insanely talented (what you do with light is incredible) but she is a wonderful woman with a big heart and an epic work ethic.
