In an article published on Emily Post Etipedia1, it states, “A wedding invitation is one of the most personal invitations issued, and an electronic version may not convey that sentiment.” In continuing our discussion on the debate to send digital or traditional invitations, you have to weigh this in light of how each generation - Baby Boomers, Generation X-ers, and Millennials define ‘personal’.
According to Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, personal2 is defined as “relating to an individual; affecting individuals; peculiar or proper to him or her, or to private actions or character.” Therefore, personal, as it pertains to wedding invitations, would be what is proper to that particular bride and groom.
It may very well be proper to a bride to go with a digital invitation because she was raised by a Generation X single mother. On the other hand a bride may opt to go the more traditional route because of what her Baby Booming parents taught her. What may be proper to one is a matter of ‘personal’ finance to the other.
The main thing to remember is that a wedding invitation should be personal - all the way around. From selecting the style, font, and color to whether you should send it via digitally or by snail mail; just remember this is one of the most personal invitations you’ll get to send for the rest of your entire life. eVitation or Invitation?
