The “New” Greenvelope is Live!
In early 2011 I came across a new online wedding invitation service, Greenvelope.com, which had recently launched. Founded in his dorm room at Washington University in St. Louis by Sam Franklin, Greenvelope had one mission: to create a formal electronic wedding invitation service that emulated the experience of opening a traditional paper invitation and to help couples “go green” on their big day.
Greenvelope has gained significant traction since early 2011, and they are well on their way to changing people’s view of electronic invitations.” With over ten thousand hosts using the service, Greenvelope has successfully initiated the green shift in the wedding invitation paradigm, providing users with an easy-to-use and highly customizable digital interface to deliver elegant invitations directly to e-mail inboxes around the world. Not only does the service provide a green, stylish and affordable option to wedding invitations, Greenvelope prides itself in providing the best customer service available, which we all know is important during the weeks leading up to the big day.
One of my favorite aspects of this service is the ability for grooms to stay involved in the process. From the design of the card all the way to tracking of the RSVP’s, the invitation experience can truly be shared with the user friendly interface and cloud based technology. When an account is created, all information is stored on the site, allowing you and your partner to check the status of who will be attending, what people will be eating and any comments people are sharing. Of course, all these features are optional, giving you complete control of your invitation destiny.
The service is not only limited to weddings. If you are not ready to go completely digital, the service is also great for bachelor parties, rehearsal dinners or any other events related to the big day.
To help celebrate the launch of their new website, Greenvelope is offering our readers a 15% discount on any purchase by entering the code “themanregistry” at checkout. (Valid through August 31st).
