Advantages to shopping online for your wedding invitations:

Convenience – Anywhere you have internet access you can shop day or night, when it fits your schedule.
Choices – There are many, many websites that offer online shopping for your wedding invites so be sure to give yourself plenty of time so you can leisurely do your browsing and do some comparison shopping.

Verses – You can easily find an invitation verse fitting to your wedding with all the selections available online.
Online Preview – Many websites provide a viewable invitation preview once you have entered all your personalized verse information so you can verify that the details are correct. Many times you can also view your chosen ink color, lettering style and font size along with your wording.
Preview Email Option – Sharing your online preview via email may be an option and comes in handy for having friends and family share their thoughts as well as assist in the proofing.
Delivery – Having your wedding invitations delivered directly to you means you don’t have to pick them up.
Order Status – Upon ordering, you will be given a confirmation number that you may be able to use for tracking your order status if the vendor provides that service. Once the order has shipped, you should also be able to track its delivery time if provided with a tracking number.

Some might say a drawback of shopping for your wedding invitations online is that you are unable to see the paper and design in-person before ordering. A simple solution is to order samples of your favorite designs so you can narrow down your choices, even if they are blank. Starting early with your online wedding invitation shopping is sure to provide plenty of time for ordering samples, proofing and shipping of your final order.

As you can see, ordering your wedding invitations online has many benefits, but it is ultimately your decision based on what makes you feel comfortable.
