@FutureMrsMarlow:  I’d do formal invites so you can get an RSVP number. We did something similar and we worded our invites as something like celebrating our marriage because everyone already knew

Since we’re only inviting immediate family and close friends, we plan to e-mail everyone the information.

@FutureMrsMarlow:  I would send beautiful invitations! 🙂 I’m sure your family and friends will be psyched to celebrate with you.

I think formal invitations would be nice, even if it’s not the wedding per se. It’s still a special event and most of us don’t get to attend ”formal” events that often in life. It’s always a nice surprise to get a formal invite in your mailbox. 🙂

@FutureMrsMarlow:  We did casual invites and also word of mouth. I won’t lie- I really wanted some type of invitation but it also needed to convey the casual-ness of the event… I think it’s especially helpful for grandparents & older people who would prefer to have all the info printed in one place, and for keepsakes. Here’s a peek at ours, we toyed with the idea of postcards too but just couldn’t get all our info on it.

I did formal (as in printed) invitations from Etsy. Since I also had the jpg I also emailed them to people. We set up a Google phone number for RSVPs in addition to email.
