3. Seed Cards
Everyone is trying to be as eco-friendly as possible due to the deteriorating condition of the earth. It is important that people focus on planting seeds and growing plants.
So, why not help people do this? You can imbed some seeds inside your wedding card. This means your wedding would be an eco-friendly one – as people would be able to plant seeds just by cutting your wedding invite. You won’t just sound different, but you would also feel some sense of achievement. Because you really have contributed a lot towards the environment.
Remember, inserting seeds inside your card won’t have any effect on texture or your invite won’t look ugly. It would look the same as you’ve designed but with just some small dots.

This is not it, you’ll also be notified about who is attending your event and who’s not. Because social media platforms ask the invitee to answer whether they would be ‘going’ to the event or not. This would allow you to invite as many people as you want – without wasting papers.
