Is anyone using a QR code on your invitations? I’m wondering what the best and cheapest QR code maker out there is. I want one that will direct to my wedding site.

Cooking for reception?
Bella, on February 4, 2016 at 5:47 PM

Okay I know this isn't the norm but I'm just wondering everyone's opinion. Nobody would be cooking the day of the wedding. It'd be a couple days before and it'd be stored then re-heated in the oven....
