Not so many years ago, wedding invitations were delivered personally by hand to all the guests while the parents took care of announcing the wedding.
Now times and methods have changed, even with the evolution of technology.
Often, especially in intimate weddings, they are considered a bit old-fashioned and useless, but in reality they play a very important role: they certainly give the event official status and give a palpable sign to the person you are inviting.
The invitations must be coordinated with the whole wedding, the address of the recipient handwritten by the bride and groom, the confirmation of participation must be requested (the classic r.s.v.p.) and the envelope must not be sealed, except with wax (if you use it).
Nowadays it is possible to foresee also solidarity participations such as save the children, wwf or unicef, just to name a few, that make your wedding even more meaningful.
It ‘also important to make a small list of those who live near you (to whom you can deliver the invitations personally) and those who live far away, maybe even in another country, and you must rely on the postal service, even if it is always a nice and special thing to find inside your mailbox a personalized communication.
Even if it’s 2020, I absolutely do not recommend the use of online socials and participations, which are impersonal and of little importance. I also strongly advise against the classic whatsapp..bandito message!
Along with the invitations, you can also add the card for a possible wedding list…I recommend you try to communicate it with elegant and not too explicit phrases…
