Stylish Invites – Oscar de la Renta For Paperless Post

Oscar-de-la-renta-paperless-post

I was reading just the other day about the positively alarming findings of a recent online study: the ever-growing trend of announcing your engagement via Facebook, even before letting your close friends and relatives know, is no longer the only etiquette faux pas that people make when it comes to weddings: it’s sadly closely followed by the fact that a growing number of brides prefer to forgo the routine of sending out invites for the big day, opting instead to announce the date and time of their ceremony…on their Facebook page.

As far as I’m concerned, this is not only the least elegant manner (and dare I say, rude as well) to invite your friends and family to what supposedly is the most important event of your life, but it also is far more impractical than you’d think – sure, the invites posted on your friends’ FB walls will definitely arrive before any printed invitation could via postman, but how about your grandparents, for instance, who you very well know, couldn’t find the ”Switch On” button for the PC if their lives depended on it?!
