Wediquette: Technology and Your Wedding

In this day and age, seemingly everyone has access to email and the internet {this includes my 89 year old grandfather in law who loves ebay!}. Thus, its only natural that internet/email savvy folks would want to use the internet to communicate details regarding their upcoming wedding - its fast, its efficient and its definitely less expensive than having items printed.

I have to advise though: think long and hard about this decision before you and Paperless Post or Evite hop into bed together. What if some guests legitimately aren't email people? How will they get the information they need regarding your wedding day? How are you going to ensure that every single person gets your email and it doesn't go into spam?

I love the idea of creating a wedding website that has all your wedding day information included in it - something I've discussed before here. You can put your hotel room block information, activities, directions, anything you'd like. But, I am still a firm believer in the written, printed word. You don't need to break the bank on stationery, but having beautiful printed invitations sets the tone for your amazing wedding day. Besides, its another keepsake for your guests and for your wedding album.
