We will not be, but I do feel like a lot of couples are moving more towards digital invitations! We are having very few “traditional” aspects of our wedding, so we decided to keep this one. Plus, I absolutely love getting wedding invitations in the mail! And I wanted to make sure we had our invitation suite for the detail picture (I love them). There are definitely benefits to going digital though; especially the savings on the cost of them and the postage.
I did online and for those folks such as senior citizens I gave them a paper invitation and the paper one I actually just took a free template online and print it on a card stock myself so we didn’t cost much anyway on those
I did the traditional paper invites and rsvp cards abs spent a pretty penny for them. I want the invitation suite/details photos. And I want to frame the actual invitations as a memento of the special day in our home. But these are just personal preferences. If these don’t matter to you and you want to skip, there are pros to going digital, such as time-saving, money-saving, and environmentally friendly.
We did physical invitations but online RSVP's. I personally don't like the idea of digital/online invitations. Guests might forget about your wedding because the invitation isn't within view (on the fridge, in their planner, etc.). Also, your invitation sets the precedent for your wedding!
We're doing Save the Date magnets with a link to our website which will contain all the information our guests need like event schedule, hotels, etc. We'll send physical invitations and direct guests to RSVP online. So we're still using physical STDs and invites but using the website for the bulk of the info to save on RSVP cards, hotel info cards, ceremony programs, etc.
