    IS there going to be a formal invitation to follow? I’m not crazy about facebook invites unless its for a casual event. FOr weddings I think at the very least if they really cant afford paper invites, they can send an E-vite that comes direct to your inbox

    Totally lame and cheap. My dad’s boss did this. Well my dad doesn’t have facebook so he thought he wa not invited. He had to tell him in person and gave him the date, place and time. Who does that? Have the decency to send an invitation to all your guests.

    Not a fan of this idea.  I do have a FB group for my wedding party where they can all chat, and I can post details.  I do send invites to them for upcoming things like fittings, etc through that group…but not our wedding invites.

    Hell to the no. We couldn’t afford a big wedding so we went to the courthouse, but we STILL managed to send nice paper invitations to each guest.

    Seriously?  I am all for mailed paper invitations.  If someone chooses to go the electronic route that’s up to them, but it’s not my preference.  Wouldn’t it make more sense to do an e-vite or paperlesspost.com?  Contrary to popular belief, not everyone in the world is on FB yet.

    I just had this happen to me last week – I was like WHAT? We had already received a save the date from this couple so I was really confused.

    I think using FB as a save-the-date type of a thing would be fine. Or to get a general idea of how many guests might be okay…if you explained that ON it!

    So I ran into the fiance of the girl and asked him, “uhhh, are you sending out invitations still?” and he said yes. But he never explained why they did the Facebook thing, and I didn’t want to push it because I felt rude. So who knows? At least they’re sending out a “real” invite though!

    I don’t like it. Just seems like laziness to me. Evites are fine for BBQs or girls nights but not a wedding.

    It’s not like wedding invitations have to be super expensive – you can get a box from nearly anywhere – then all you have to do is mail them.

    It’s like sending an e-card because you forgot someone’s bday. It’s not about the actual card or the invitation it’s about the fore-thought and effort that goes into sending someone actual mail.

    Email save the dates is one thing, but facebook wedding invite? no.

    I’m not going to invest a ton of money in invitations, but I will be mailing everyone 1 piece of paper.

    I, personally, would never do it. I’m never surprised by anything anymore. To each their own.

    Some people use facebook as the STD and then mail our actual invites but only to the people who they think are definitely coming.
