Thinking about swapping out paper wedding shower invitations for digital? Before you make up your mind, it's important to weigh the pros and cons of sending bridal shower invitations online. When it comes to wedding-related events, we're big fans of paper stationery first and foremost. Physical invitations aren't just a nice surprise for guests to receive in the mail, they're also a sweet keepsake the couple and their loved ones can hold onto afterward. (And when The Knot Invitations offers affordable and eco-friendly paper options, what's not to love?)

That said, there are certainly some scenarios where sending email wedding shower invitations makes a lot of sense. If you're on a tight deadline, e-invites will arrive in guests' inboxes almost immediately—efficient, right? But you also have to consider any less tech-savvy loved ones on the guest list. For example, grandparents may not be comfortable receiving or responding to an email invitation (especially if it accidentally ends up in their spam folder), so you may need to follow up with a phone call in some cases.

Another great perk of sending digital bridal shower invitations is that they're environmentally friendly. If the couple is planning an eco-friendly wedding, paperless shower invites will likely be very much appreciated. But as we mentioned before, digital stationery isn't the only way to go green. Nowadays, many stationery websites (like The Knot Invitations) offer the option of printing on recycled paper. Similarly, if affordability is an issue, there are lots of great places you can find affordable paper wedding shower invitations online (hint hint).

Finally, email bridal shower invitations are a great option for casual or virtual events. They'll give guests an idea of what to expect, whether you're planning a relaxed bridal brunch or a playfully themed couple's shower where people can stop by anytime. Decided to forgo the paper? We're sharing some of our favorite wedding shower invites you can buy and send online.

Dainty Blooms

Greenvelope has a wide variety of gorgeous wedding shower e-invites to choose from. We love the soft, delicate florals that frame the details on this stationery, but if you've got a specific theme or style in mind, you'll find plenty of other invitation designs on the site too. You can easily edit these online wedding invitations directly through the website and send them straight to guests' inboxes (meaning there's no need to manually draft a separate email for everyone on the guest list). The icing on the cake? Greenvelope also offers online RSVP tracking.

Romantic Calligraphy
