You can email them for their address. I’ve received one wedding invite via evite, and while I wasn’t offended and I attended, it seemed cheap.

In my opinion its tacky, we received an e-mail invite last year to a wedding and couldnt stop talking about how cheap and tacky it was, we told some people and they thought the same thing, you should put effort into your invites its the first thing people see in regards to your wedding and they set the tone for everything else….

@Katnisseverdeen:  My best friend just sent out evites for her wedding, but it’s her 3rd marriage and she is trying to make it more casual.   I’m sending out paper invites, just because I don’t trust technology, and I have a lot of people who may not otherwise respond.

I wouldn’t.  Seems lazy to me.

I  love evites for small, casual social functions.  For a wedding, I would think it was cheap and lazy.

We did save the dates via evite then mailed invitations to everyone who RSVP’d that they’d attend. We also sent invitations to relatives abroad just so they’d have a piece of the wedding somehow even though we knew they couldn’t make it. There will always be people who don’t care as much as us bees do about paper invitations (think younger siblings etc). So don’t stress too much about it if it’s somehow well above your budget or not on your priority list.

I think an evite is ok for a birthday party or shower but not to a wedding..its just seems very informal

It seems kind of like they’re list C people or obligational invites, like you perhaps ran out of invites. I would just ask for their addresses and send the invite that way. You can even explain why you are asking for their addresses so it doesn’t look as weird.

If you’re sending real invites to everyone else you should to those people as well.

I might just be afraid that I wasn’t on the original guest list if I didn’t get a paper invite.
