Baldwin and his fianceé, Hilaria Thomas, are reportedly planning to text invitations to their guests on the day of their wedding, reports the New York Post.
According to etiquette expert Daniel Post Senning of the Emily Post Institute, the couple's decision to forego traditional printed invitations makes a statement about the wedding's "significance."
"The invitation is the guests' first clue or indication about the importance of the event," Senning told HuffPost Weddings. "A text wedding invitation starts to border on, 'Be careful, you're not giving this event the significance and importance that it deserves.'"
As the New York Post previously reported, the couple will wed on June 30 at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York. The pair is being so secretive about their reception that not even Baldwin's brother, Stephen, knows the location.
“I’m going. I haven’t been told the location yet,” Stephen told The Post Wednesday. “That’s about all I can say, because [Alec] can still kick my butt.”
The spouses-to-be seem to be taking a page from "Girls" with their text-only invites: On the season finale of the hit HBO series,, guests were invited to a surprise wedding via last-minute SMS.
