@ontbride:  We did the same sort of celebration back home and considered doing a facebook event/invite for it. We realized that at least a quarter of our guests were older and either 1) didn’t have facebook or 2) did have it but no idea how to use it. So it just wouldn’t have worked for us, however if your crowd is facebook savvy I say go for it! It’s a casual party, not a black -tie event so I’d say it’s totally appropriate!

@ontbride:  I haven’t done this but I don’t think there would be anything wrong with it. You have already been married so it is basically just a party. It really depends if you’re keeping it casual, which it sounds like you are. So I say “go for it”.

@ontbride:  We had a very small wedding and threw a big party at our house a few weeks later.

I sent email invitations and it worked great. I used Free and very easy to use.

@ontbride:  The invitation should fit the feeling of the celebration. If you were having a formal dinner then you should really send out formal invites. Since your celebration is a fun, casual “open house” type feel I see nothing wrong with a Facebook invitation. You can just call anyone who isn’t on Facebook.

I would only do this if I were perfectly OK with people bringing extra people. When you make the event as casual as a Facebook invite then you risk it being viewed as a “the more, the merrier” type of thing. So you may want to increase the amount of food and beverage available.  I also would not register and would not anticipate gifts.

I would! It’s a casual drop-in event, so a casual invite would be ideal!

@ontbride:  I would either to Evite (assuming all guests know how to use a compter and have an email account), or just get some inexpensive invitations or a DIY something with a printer in case not all guests use the computer.
