Invites

Is everyone doing traditional invitations? Is anyone considering doing evites?

I'm just trying to cut down the cost wherever I can specially on something people will most likely just toss away. Seriously, my friend gave me the invitation to her wedding and I took a quick look at it the day she gave it to me and when I got home I just put it on my coffee table and haven't opened it again.

    I personally think traditional invitations are nice. I didn’t do many things that are traditional but we did do that. Not having to go back through emails to find the details for a wedding is nice and I also think if you have any older people they are more likely to respond to a traditional invite.

    I wouldn’t do digital invitations unless you’re having a casual backyard BBQ wedding. Your invitation should convey the formality of your event and an email definitely doesn’t come off as formal or even semi formal.

    I plan on mailing invitations but having everyone RSVP on our website.

    We got our STDs at Costco! About $20 for 75 of them, and they also have invitations. They had fewer options than other sites I looked at, but couldn't beat that price!

    We're doing simple flat invitations- no details cards- that's all on the website. For 70 matching sets, ours were $100 on sale from Vistaprint.

    I really keep going back and forth on this.

    I have compromised on mailing invitations but RSVPs online. I think the online invitation is informal but might be good for a save the date.

    I agree an evite suggests a very casual wedding/backyard bbq. If other elements are fancy/formal/expensive, the invitation should be consistent with that. An evite to me suggests, show up in jeans or a sundress. If that's what you're going for, then it might be a good match.

    My fiancé and I decided to do evites last month for our November wedding. They are very easy to set up, and no need to spend time hand writing everyone’s addresses on an envelope. It was free. We did spend time on our website and are happy with our decision.

    We did traditional save the dates & invites. I think e-save the dates are fine, but not invites. I've never seen it before, and probably wouldn't take the wedding super seriously (and honestly would probably forget) unless I got a paper invite.
