As a minimalist bride, you should focus on the details that matter the most and ditch everything else that doesn't align. It's year 2020, time to break traditions and help save the environment.
1. The most minimalist way to send out your invitations - paperless.
PaperlessPost.com is a great option for this! You can upload your own design (or pick from their options), select an envelope color, and add in the rest of your details. Invites get sent via email. All of our designs can easily be used with Paperless Post. We also have an email-friendly Change the Date card here.
2. Only print the wedding invitation.
A great way to cut down on paper is to only print the wedding invitation and pair with a simple envelope. Let everything else live digitally on the wedding website - keep it simple and elegant. Save the Dates work perfectly in a digital format, saving you time and money as well. See our text-friendly Save the Dates here!
3. Have your guests RSVP digitally through your website.
It saves so much time for you both. They can quickly RSVP on their phone and you can easily export spreadsheets of your guest list. No need for an extra card and envelope to include with the invitation.
4. Create a central seating chart.
Cut back on your to do list by creating a single seating chart display for your guests. Instead of individual name tags, look for large recycled frames for a large printed chart.
5. Ditch the party favors!
they usually get tossed once guests get home. If you do feel passionate about small gifts, have it be consumable with minimal materials, or reusable glassware they would feel happy using once they're home.
