Being environmentally conscious doesn’t have to look tacky – Paperless Post is changing the way we use evites for all our modern occasions!
As every hostess who has ever planned a party knows, your party invitations
As a wedding planner by day and champion party thrower by night, I have watched the popularity of paper invites decline for a while now. Once a paper-purist myself, I’ve had to come to terms with the realities of paper invites. They’re expensive (hello, have you seen the price of postage these days?), they get lost in the onslaught of bills and fliers and other mailbox clutter, and to be honest – they aren’t great for the environment. My friends, and my clients’ wedding guests, are busy – they’re way more likely to check their Inbox then their mailbox. Paperless Post is the perfect solution for modernizing the party planning process.
We got to test this out ourselves when we planned Fernanda’s baby shower a couple weeks ago. Fernanda and James hosted a co-ed shower, which meant a pretty big guest list. With the announcements coming out while we were both on vacation, we had to find a way to deliver the invites and track RSVPs as easily as possible. Paperless Post made the entire process a breeze. They have hundreds of truly gorgeous, completely customizable invitation templates for any occasion or theme. Seriously – just browsing through their catalogue was absolute eye candy.
The best part is that you can upload your own complete designs, which is hard to find in digital invites. It allowed us to stick with Fernanda’s dream shower theme. The invites turned out SO cute – we couldn’t have asked for more.
Paperless Post makes it easy to manage your events with the built-in Dashboard. It’s especially useful for organizing multiple events in one place. We emailed out our
There is also a completely FREE option on Paperless Post called Flyers. You can use the super fun native templates (so many amazing gifs!) to create quick, easy invites perfect for small gatherings like a house warming or holiday cocktail party (we used a Paperless Post Flyer for our party over the holidays!) They’re fast and easy to text directly to guests – but you still get the perks of Paperless Post’s RSVP tracking platform.
Tracking RSVPs and messagings guests is way easier with the Paperless Post app. We could easily check who had confirmed and who we needed to follow up with on the go, and even send quick messages to guests.
Every step of the Paperless Post process felt so easy and intuitive. Best of all, it never felt like we were sacrificing our personal aesthetic just to make the sending process quicker. Fernanda commented that tracking down RSVPs for the wedding was way harder than the baby shower, just because people found it so much easier to click “Attending” then fill out the RSVP card and slip it in the mailbox.
We absolutely recommend using Paperless Post if you want the personal touch of a customized, on-theme invitation, without the hassle of printing, tracking down addresses, and countless trips to the post office. Paperless Post makes it easy to manage the invite process from anywhere you happen to be. Check your guest list status while you’re slipping out of a yoga class, send a quick note to someone who hasn’t RSVPd yet while you’re at the grocery store, etc. Paperless Post is making it easier to manage your event’s guest list, so you can focus on the stuff that really matters.
