To state the obvious we’re living in an age ruled by the web. Maybe not the Internet exclusively, but all things digital are at the forefront of most everything. Everyday tasks can be done with a few clicks of a button and major life decisions too. This isn’t necessarily news, but what might be is that even the most niche commodities are now available at our fingertips. Things that used to be out of reach are now free and traditional methods have an entirely different look.
Industries as reliant upon exchanging goods and services for monetary compensation as the wedding world have had to transition to fit the bill in order to sustain. That means ditching their brick and mortar storefronts and heading online offering a fair balance of for-profit items and complimentary freebies.
The wedding industry is a prime example of conforming (in a good way) because there are endless subgroups within the wedding world that have heeded this change. Vendors, venues, photographers… the list goes on – have all ditched their old-school ways for a much more accessible method. One aspect in particular – the wedding invitation industry, the most successful stationery companies are now exclusively online, but in order to stay in business while competing with self-sufficient and self-proclaimed techies (who could probably design and print invitations on their own) are in-fact still thriving because many have found the sweet spot.
The point being, traditions look different due to technology and sticking to the word of weddings, announcing engagements, giving updates on wedding-related festivities, and even inviting your entire guest list solely online is the new norm. This is such a great example of innovation because the wedding industry – specifically, the wedding invitation industry was built on paper products, printing services, and SNAIL MAIL.
Taking all of that into consideration, who really want to send a mass text or start a Facebook group to invite loved ones to the most special day of their lives? Well, surely someone, but a majority of brides-to-be want their day and all that goes into it to be special, classy, and memorable. That’s where e-vites and wedding websites come in handy. Being able to frugally or even freely invite their guests to various wedding-related festivities online AND with style is a game changer.
