I’m not alone in this online invitations wave. Just the other day even Abby at Style Me Pretty (on her way to challenging Martha, no?) posted a digital save the date. Offbeat Bride has another one here. These are video. You see, in the case of video, the tool set is already in the hands of the consumer. As opposed to animated web invite design and development, still owned by scary boy experts for the most part.
Someone from MyPunchbowl.com emailed me to politely tell me they have another online invite service. I haven’t looked at it, but they were very polite. Chelsea at frolic posted about cocodot, new and started by a photographer.
But, I concede, at this time, paper prevails. After all, I’m not completely unreasonable. So, if you’re looking for wedding invitations, Mimi from Mika78 did a great roundup for Weddings Fresh here. If you simply cannot keep your creativity under wraps (it’s hard sometimes, isn’t it?) my particular favorite is the Edward Gorey style below. I mean, who can find even a hint of sentimentality in Mr. Gorey?
In conclusion, as we said in college, even more special is if your mom and dad PAINT your invitations. For the final word on the subject, I give you Buckeroomama’s wedding invitations. She’s moved on to kids now, in the way of the world, but still. Invitations of an underwater scene painted by your mother and father because you like to scuba dive?
Goodness me. To say nothing of photos of Hong Kong wedding cars. Life is good. Life is very good.
