Apparently Xochitl Gonzalez (or people she has interviewed or worked with) thinks so.

According to this article from HuffPost Weddings, when bringing up the concept of wedding invitations, one bride replied “Like a paper invitation? I thought we would just send an email and direct them to a website…”

The article seems to suggest not only that brides and couples are leaning toward this, and that the idea of sending traditional snail-mail invitations is obsolete in itself, but that even guests in this technological age expect nothing more than an email or text and no longer welcome tradition. As the author asserts, wedding etiquette is already dead and trying to revive it is pointless, “especially when the guests themselves are clueless”.

I am seeing just the opposite reaction from my own clients’ guests when they receive beautiful paper invitations addressed in handwritten calligraphy that is clearly not done by the book.
