Prince William and Kate Middleton used the less-than-glamorous fax machine to send out their first round of save-the-dates for their spring wedding.
While fancier invitations are sure to follow, European royals invited to the ceremony have just received word via fax to keep April 29 free.
Tradition dictates that royal guests be notified before other high-profile attendees, and faxes are supposedly the most efficient way to do so.
Greece’s former king as well as royals from Romania and Serbia have already confirmed their attendance, while Princess Diana’s close friend Elton John does not expect an invite.
Would you ever sacrifice style for convenience and fax your wedding invitations?
