A digital invitation is an electronic invitation that is sent and received through email, messaging apps, social media, or other digital platforms. It typically includes all the details of an event, such as the date, time, location, dress code, and other relevant information.

Digital invitations work by allowing you to design and customize your invitation using digital tools and software, and then sending it to your guests digitally. This eliminates the need for paper invitations and allows you to easily track RSVPs, send reminders, and make updates to the invitation as needed. Digital invitations can also include features such as animations, videos, and interactive elements that make the invitation more engaging and memorable.

A gift registry is a list of items that someone creates to request as gifts for a special occasion, such as a wedding, baby shower, or housewarming party.
