Now, if you’re looking for a savvy and cost-effective way to get your invitations out, then ‘digital’ could be the perfect way to do it. The rules really change when you go digital.

Clever links

Guests may have the option to RSVP for your wedding by scanning the QR code, or hitting the button to respond via email.

You could even collect dietary requirements by adding a Google form.

From elements to frames, effects and animations – they operate in the video editor the same way. Add in your design elements, announce your engagement, or add in your wedding date. You can still even add in a QR code so people can RSVP really easily. Imagine everyone’s surprise when they receive this.
