*How did Paperless Wedding begin?*
It all began back in 2008 when we got married. We did the whole thing online with code that my soon to be husband wrote. Then when we moved to New Zealand, he converted that code and made it a business! We launched the UK site in 2014!
*How is Paperless Wedding eco-friendly?*
* We enable couples to be 100% digital when they send out Save the Dates and Invitations.
* For those who want to do recycled paper cards, we can save on additional paper by giving them a wedding website that they can design to match the invitation.
* We save trees, reduce peoples carbon footprints and save people money too!

*Why is a wedding website worth considering?*
You have so many things to do on the lead up to your wedding. People ask a lot of questions. By creating a wedding website you can share all the information about your big day so everyone knows what is going on and when. You can also share more about your engagement story and details about who is in your wedding party, so all guests feel like they know everyone.
*Is there technical support available?*
We are on hand to help out. We do this all via email. We have tried to make sure all questions are in the FAQ’s! If you need to speak to me, I will always call if that is required.
*Are couples able to keep a copy of the save the date or invitation – would this be possible?*
This is something we are now working on. We hope to have a digital download of the site available to people by the end of 2015.
