5 Online Invitation Sites We Love

Thinking about going the e-vite route? Here's where the etiquette stands.

Email invites are gaining in popularity (eco-friendly, affordable) and slowly rewriting invitation etiquette. We stand by snail mail, especially for the big stuff like the wedding ceremony and reception invitations. But when it comes to party invites, like for an engagement soiree, bachelorette bash or even rehearsal dinner, we can get on board with email, especially if it's really pretty. We've rounded up 5 online invitation vendors that get our stamp of approval. 

  1. Paperless Post

    Want to print a keepsake invitation, or mail just one to your Grandma? Paperless Post lets you choose between paper or paperless invites. Best of all, they offer awesome designs thanks to collaborations with Kate Spade, Oscar de la Renta, Jonathan Adler, and John Derian.

    From the text, to the colors, patterns and envelopes, every detail of your Greenvelope invitations are customizable. No really, every detail...even the envelope liner! And a portion of every sale goes toward Mountains to Sound, a non-profit organization that maintains forests, so you can feel extra-good about the paper and trees you saved.
