We create premium digital invitations that tell a story and connect you with your guests in an interactive experience. Our invitations consist of a digital story in video format, and a website that helps you to organize all the different aspects of your wedding or other event. Although we specialize in weddings, we also have options for birth announcements, legacy journals, and a number of other occasions. Watch one of our video demos if you’re interested in seeing what our invitations look like.
Real Invites is about more than just digital wedding invitations. We’re about bringing people together. As a giving, charitable, environmentally conscious organization, we believe in the power of connections. Founders Darlene Lucas and Steve Lucas were inspired by the power of digital storytelling to bring people together. Real Invites was created to bring this new art form to a wider audience, and create new contexts for its use.
The ancient art of storytelling is our most tried and tested way of connecting with each other. Now with the power of new media and digital technology, a story can incorporate photography, graphics, music, and other non-traditional approaches. There are fewer limitations than ever on the form a story can take and the purpose it can serve. Digital stories are a powerful expressive medium that can make your life experiences come alive. We hope to bring the power of this new and evolving artform into the lives of as many people as possible.
