Deciding on Print or Paperless Wedding Invites

When planning your elegant wedding invitation, one of the first choices you will face is whether to go with paperless wedding invitations or printed wedding invites. Printed wedding invitations are much more traditional and can be used as treasured keepsakes of this very special day. Paperless invitations are less expensive to produce and distribute, which can help you manage your wedding budget in the most effective way possible. Here are some key reasons to consider paperless or printed wedding invitations for this very special day.

  • Your printed wedding invitations are suitable for framing or keeping in a scrapbook as a lasting reminder of your special day. This can allow you to enjoy these memories of your wedding for many years into the future.
  • Printed wedding invitations offer a tangible item that can be saved and referred to by your invited guests during the leadup to your wedding celebration.
  • You have a few additional options when choosing printed wedding invitations, including the paper you choose, edging for the wedding invitations and embossing that can be seen and felt. This can give your wedding invites a real sense of importance and can increase the attendance at your wedding by your invited guests.
  • Choosing printed wedding invitations can reinforce the traditional nature of your wedding for your guests. This can also allow you to set the stage for a formal wedding and will communicate a sense of gravity for this important affair.
  • Not all your invited guests may have access to email, which is required for paperless wedding invitations. By opting for traditional printed wedding invites, you can ensure that all of your guests can receive your wedding invitations in a way that works for them.

Paperless wedding invitations offer some important advantages for you and your partner, including the following:

  • The most important of these advantages may be the cost savings associated with digital wedding invites. Digital wedding invitations are sent by email, which eliminates postage costs and delays in delivery. 
  • Digital wedding invitations are ideally suited for modern weddings and offer easy access to RSVP options that will make it much easier for your guests to respond in a timely way. These wedding invitations can be linked directly to your wedding website to allow your invited guests to access additional information about your upcoming ceremony, wedding reception and other arrangements. Creating elegant wedding invites that can be sent digitally can provide you with added help in managing all aspects of your wedding planning processes.
  • Many of the same options available for printed wedding invitations can also be applied to your paperless wedding invitations. Embossed looks, backgrounds and many other elements can be used for both printed and paperless wedding invitations to create unique elegant wedding invitations of which you and your partner will be proud.
  • If you are planning to invite guests from outside the country, paperless wedding invitations can significantly reduce the risk of lost or misdelivered wedding invites. Your elegant wedding invites can be delivered within minutes rather than weeks or months, which can make paperless wedding invites an excellent choice for international and destination weddings.

In some cases, it may make sense to print a limited number of wedding invitations for those who do not have easy access to email. This can represent a good compromise that balances the expense of printed wedding invitations with the convenience and lower cost of printed wedding invitations. At Bliss & Bone, we offer both printed and paperless wedding invitations to help you create the unique simple wedding invitations you need for everyone included on your guest list.

Planning Your Elegant Wedding Invitations

Designing your wedding invites should be one of the first items on your wedding timeline. Your Save the Date cards should be sent out as soon as you have finalized your venues and the specific date of your wedding. Since your Save the Dates and other elements of your wedding invites and stationery will typically use the same basic designs, your elegant wedding invite will often be the foundation for all parts of your stationery suite. Whether you are planning simple elegant wedding invites or elegant black and white wedding invitations, you can create the perfect look for your wedding stationery at Bliss & Bone.

Some of the most important things to keep in mind when planning your classic elegant wedding invitations include the following:

  • Choose a design that works with your theme: Selecting an elegant wedding invitation background that can be used for Save the Dates, wedding websites and your elegant wedding invite will create a cohesive look for your entire paperless or printed wedding stationery suite. Our elegant wedding invitations templates can be adapted to a wide range of themes, including formal, rustic, beachy and many others. Bliss & Bone makes it easier to create an elegant wedding invitation that suits your theme and that reflects your own unique aesthetic.
  • Find the perfect elegant wedding invitation background: Choosing a single background for your wedding website, wedding invitations and other elements of your stationery suite can allow you to create a cohesive look with minimal effort on your part. Bliss & Bone offers an array of backgrounds for our elegant wedding invitations online. Along with our elegant wedding invitations templates, our backgrounds are the perfect way to create the perfect look for every element of your stationery.
  • Select fonts and wording: When creating the most elegant wedding invitation, choosing the right words and fonts can be critical to the overall success of your elegant wedding invite. While your wording need not be overly formal, you should be sure that the essential information is easy to read and to understand. Taking a look at our examples of elegant wedding invites can often provide you with a clear idea of the right wording and the best fonts for your own wedding invites.
  • Personalize your wedding invitations: Bliss & Bone makes it simple to upload your own photos or to incorporate elements that reflect the relationship you and your partner share. Adding a personal touch can make your elegant wedding invitation even more special for you, your partner and your invited guests. This can also increase excitement about the prospect of sharing your special day with you.
  • Let guests know the most important information first: Most of the elegant wedding invitations displayed on our website are designed to deliver key information within the first few lines. While not everything on your wedding planning checklist needs to be included on your wedding invitations, your elegant wedding invites should provide the date, time, location and other essential information in a clear and easy-to-read way.
  • Consider branding your wedding: In some cases, wedding monograms and logos can be used to create a recognizable brand for your wedding. This can help your elegant wedding invites to stand out from the crowd and can ensure that your wedding invitations make the most memorable impression on those you choose to invite. Implementing branding techniques can allow your wedding invites to have a significant impact on your invited guests.
  • Share the design process: Working with your partner to create your own elegant wedding invitations can make this much more pleasant for both of you. It can also ensure that your elegant wedding invitation ideas reflect input from you and your partner and that they make the best impression on your guests.

These general guidelines on planning your wedding can allow you to relax and to have some fun while making arrangements for this very special day. You and your partner can work together to create a wedding that suits your tastes and that will make a real impact on those who attend.

Managing the Cost of Your Wedding

Wedding experts estimate that most couples will pay an average of $33,931 in costs for weddings. Some of the major items that may be included on your wedding planning checklist include the following:

  • The wedding venue will usually make up a large percentage of your budget and can account for as much as half of the money you spend on your wedding. Smaller or less ornate venues are often much less expensive than venues designed for a larger number of guests.
  • Catering is also a major expense that depends on the number of guests you plan to invite and on the types of food you serve. Smaller weddings can be much less expensive to cater, which may allow you to splurge in other areas.
  • Decor for your wedding can vary widely in cost and can be a minor or major expense.
  • Wedding flowers can also vary in cost depending on the types of flowers you want and the overall amount of flowers to be delivered to your wedding venues.
  • Transportation is a major factor in cost for destination weddings and can make a real difference in the ability of your guests to attend your wedding. Remember to factor in your own travel costs when planning your overall wedding budget.

In most cases, your wedding invitations will not be a major financial expense. Elegant wedding invitations can be affordable in both printed and digital forms. In general, added features and extras will increase the cost of your elegant wedding invites. Hand calligraphy, for example, can increase the beauty of your wedding invitations and can allow you to skip the task of addressing your elegant wedding invitation. However, these added services for your wedding invitations can also cost a significant amount of money.

Sending your wedding invitations digitally can reduce the cost of postage and printing for you and your partner. This can represent a significant savings on the cost of your wedding invites. Even if you cannot send all of your elegant wedding invitations digitally, reducing the number of wedding invitations that must be printed and mailed out can often lower the cost of your wedding to a considerable degree.

Experts recommend spending no more than four to six percent of your total wedding budget on wedding invitations. At Bliss & Bone, we make it simple to create an elegant wedding invitation that you will be proud to send to your friends and family on a budget you can easily afford. Whether you want paperless or printed wedding invitations, we are here to help you find the perfect elegant wedding invite for your very special day.

Putting It All Together: Elegant Wedding Invites Step by Step

Creating the most elegant wedding invitations can be simple if you take it step by step. Here are the best ways to create an elegant wedding invite that will impress your guests and that you and your partner will be happy to share with friends and family members:

  1. Find a venue and set a date: Once you have decided on a wedding venue and have reserved the date for your wedding, you can begin the process of planning your elegant wedding invitations. Since wedding invitations often are inspired in part by the decor and overall location of the venue, waiting until these arrangements are in place can often help you find inspiration for the most elegant wedding invitations for your upcoming nuptials.
  2. Decide on your theme: Elegant wedding invites can match or complement your overall wedding theme. By planning your wedding invites to coordinate with the chosen theme for your wedding ceremony and reception, you can create the most elegant wedding invites possible and can convey the mood and theme of your wedding more easily and effectively.
  3. Choose digital or printed wedding invites: Your elegant wedding invites can be printed to create a tangible keepsake of your special day or sent digitally to reduce costs to you and to the environment. You can also opt to print a few elegant wedding invites and to send the rest of your wedding invitations digitally to optimize the experience for you and your partner as well as for your invited guests.
  4. Find the perfect images and backgrounds: Bliss & Bone makes it easier to create elegant wedding invites customized to your preferences. We offer numerous backgrounds for wedding invitations and websites, which can make it easy for you and your partner to find the perfect combination for your own elegant wedding invitation.
  5. Provide some basic information: Your elegant wedding invites should include the date, time and locations of your wedding reception and ceremony. Since this information should appear on your wedding invites, you will need to enter it into the Bliss & Bone interface before 
  6. Choose your wording: Depending on the formality of your wedding, the wording you choose for your elegant wedding invites can vary significantly. Looking at the examples of elegant wedding invitations available from Bliss & Bone can often provide you with added guidance on the right wording for your own wedding invitations.
  7. Tweak and test your design: Before making a final decision on your elegant wedding invitation, you should take some time to test the design. You can ask close friends and family to have a look at the elegant wedding invite to make sure that you have not overlooked any aspect of design. Don't forget to check your spelling carefully. A misspelled word on your elegant wedding invite can easily be overlooked without careful proofreading by you, your partner and your friends and family.
  8. Build your wedding website: Especially if you plan to send paperless wedding invitations or if you expect plans to change between the time you send your elegant wedding invitations and the date of your wedding, your wedding website will be a valuable resource for you. Wedding websites can help you track RSVPs and responses to your elegant wedding invitations and can allow you to communicate with guests who plan to attend your wedding. Best of all, your website can be designed to match your wedding invites and to create a positive impression on all who visit your site online.
  9. Gather addresses: Whether you plan to send your elegant wedding invitation by mail or digitally, you will need physical or email addresses to deliver your wedding invites. You can collect these addresses for your wedding invites through other family members, by phone or by setting up a website specifically for this purpose.
  10. Enter your data: Once you have all the information necessary and have constructed your elegant wedding invitations, it is time to enter your personal data and to input addresses into the Bliss & Bone interface. The information requested will typically include details about the precise dates, times and venues for your wedding along with your name, your partner's name and any responsible parties who can be contacted with questions about your wedding invitations.
  11. Pay your bill: Before your elegant wedding invites can be printed, you will need to pay for these services. You will also need to pay before your digital wedding invites can be sent via email. Bliss & Bone makes it affordable to send your elegant wedding invitations to those you want to attend your once-in-a-lifetime wedding.
  12. Send out your wedding invitations: If you chose to have your elegant wedding invites printed, they will either be sent to a professional hand calligrapher for addressing or sent directly to you. Either way, you will be responsible for the postage required to mail your elegant wedding invitations to their intended recipients. For digital wedding invitations, Bliss & Bone can send out your elegant wedding invitations on a schedule that works for you and your guests.

Our goal is to make it easy for you to create elegant wedding invites and to send them to everyone on your guest list. This can help you to create the wedding of your dreams from start to finish.
