Even before the COVID pandemic, many brides were opting for digital invites and eco-friendly virtual experiences, as opposed to traditional paper stationery and expensive wedding decor installments. Today on the blog, we’re featuring some of our favorite digital wedding options. Not to worry, weddings in the digital age don’t have to be frustrating. Scroll down for some cool virtual wedding ideas!
Whether you like stationery that’s vibrant and flashy, or you want to keep it simple with a chic, minimal design, digital save-the-dates are a perfect option! They’re super versatile and easy to distribute. With guests’ emails, phone numbers, or even Facebook Messenger, letting your loved ones know you’re getting married will be such a breeze. Follow up with formal digital invitations and include an RSVP link to make sure you have everyone accounted for.
Digital Guest Book
Digital Guest Book: Miss Design Berry
If you’re planning a virtual wedding, or even if some of your loved ones aren’t able to make it to your big day, consider a digital guest book. Miss Design Berry offers an “Add Digital Signatures” option with their alternative wedding guest books. This allows guests who cannot sign in-person to submit notes digitally to include on your guest book print. You’ll receive a customized link to share with anyone you want to sign your guest book. Then, guests can type their message or upload an image of a handwritten note. Once a designer combines the messages with your custom artwork, the stunning keepsake print will be shipped directly to you.
Digital Event App
To minimize decor and stationery costs, bring your wedding to life with a digital event app. Applications like LineUpr provide a digital replacement for printed programs and keep guests informed and updated. You can also individualize the app with your wedding color scheme, engagement photos, venue location, and other personal information. Ahead of your big day, share your app URL via QR code, social media, or email. Your guest will only need to use their browser to access your event app.
The ultimate wedding floor dream? Digital wedding playlists! Designed with you and your guests in mind, a collaborative Spotify playlist will allow you and yours to personalize your wedding in true DJ fashion. This is such an easy, inexpensive alternative for couples that want maximum tunes for minimum bucks. From fun, upbeat throwbacks to intimate slow songs, you’ll have a blast tearing up the dance floor. The best part? You can listen to your wedding playlist for years to come!
Digital Seating Chart
Say hello to clean, effective organization without the extravagant (and pricey) chart installations. Although it’s not the statement-making flower wall, a digital seating chart is a wonderful, stress-free alternative to your virtual wedding experience. Your guests can easily check their seats on a touch screen display. A super cool feature? Digital seating charts are totally customizable – you can even turn it into a digital photo album to display some of your favorite moments.
Many wedding registry services allow your guests to contribute to cash funds you’ve set up or gift digital gift cards for the newlyweds to use. Whether you want help saving up for your honeymoon or a future home-renovation, you can set up a cash fund for anything you’re passionate about. Similarly, you can register for gift cards to many of your favorite companies. A gift card to AirBnB may help you plan your next vacation or take advantage of AirBnB’s Online Experiences.
