We started to email the wedding invitations a few weeks ago. Call us environmentally conscious or just plain cheap, but those guests that expect anything in the form of a mailed letter are in for a surprise. Because this is all they are going to get.

But I’m not sure if I was explicit enough in writing the words “wedding invitation” in the subject of the email. A friend already thought what I sent was a save-the-date.

I anticipate more work on my part because of this.

Not to mention those guests who do not have an email address on record. Those guests can expect to receive a printout of this same invitation, hand delivered to them by my mother. And I apologize in advance if the invitation never reaches its intended destination.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the wedding (or not, depending on whether you received the email and fully understood its meaning.)
