Our Modern Latina Bride Considers Evite & a Wedding Website


I am very happy and comfortable with moving my wedding date, but the one thing that bothers me is the issue of my invitations. My wedding invitations were lovely (at least I thought so), and I put so much thought into them, so it’s too bad I won’t be able to use them. When I decided to postpone the wedding, I had already mailed all my invitations, which I should mention were addressed in calligraphy writing, and received many RSVP responses, so basically the whole project was a waste. Out of all the decisions I have made (besides dress and shoes), the choice of invitations was what I felt closest to since it was my vision and exactly the way I imagined them, so it sucks to have to reinvent another invitation with the new date. But, it is what it is, so now I’m stuck thinking about what my next step should be. Should I just reprint the original invitations and pay a second time for letterpress? Although, since it’s the second time around, I don’t know if receiving the invites would feel as special. Or do I create a completely different, more casual, less expensive invitation? Or perhaps a cheesy wedding website or Evite filled with pictures of us, some romantic R&B song playing in the background, and the new wedding info? As you can tell, I’m not too fond of the website/Evite fad, but it is inexpensive – actually, free.

Please help!
