We all receive wedding invites, by post, by courier, in person and even by email. A friend of mine recently invited me for his wedding. What’s new, you might ask. Well, somebody inviting me for a wedding is not new, but the wedding invite was an out-of-the-world card, from the e-world literally! The invitation was designed to look like the Facebook homepage.
I thoroughly appreciate his creativity for designing it in such a manner; after all, who wouldn’t know Facebook, right? Nobody would have ever seen a card like that, and his wedding will be remembered by a lot of people for a long time, all because of the invite. Most people who saw the card expressed a wow. Some were of the “oh c’mon, Facebook even in a wedding invite?” kind of opinion.
Creativity apart, are we getting so obsessed that we think of Facebook even in a wedding card? Inviting people on Facebook is one thing; designing a card like Facebook is a different thing altogether.
