@DC_ChicagoBride:  I might be more inclined to think of it seriously if I knew the couple was super green and into conserving paper for environmental reasons.  Other than that I honestly wouldn’t take it seriously as a wedding invitation.

If money is an issue I bought my invitations from Vistaprint using a Groupon for $27.

@beachbride1216:  mmmm yeah i dunno about evites for a wedding. i have a friend that did it, but i think it’s a bad idea. my family had issues just figuring out our registries. we used evites for my bridal shower and my mom couldnt even figure out how to open it. :/

We received e-vites for a wedding recently and it sounds like a lot of people didn’t take it seriously. They said it was probably more stressful/work than it would have been to just send out invites. I also wouldn’t assume that everyone checks their email.

@DC_ChicagoBride:  Yeah, I don’t know either. I might be biased though since the only wedding evite I’ve ever received was for a couple who had a “rush” wedding, if you know what I mean. I guess it could work if your wedding will be very informal, or like the PP said, you’re a super green couple.

I don’t know, I’m sure there would still be some people who don’t use email, I can name at least 10 people in my family who don’t! Unless the couple were super green, I would assume they took the easy/cheap way out, and I wouldn’t take it seriously. There are many options for cheap invitations out there, and I feel like wedding invitations should be in physical paper form.

 I don’t know of any that do totally paperless invites, but I’ve seen a lot of sites that offer online RSVP options.  Take a look at any of the sites that offer wedding websites.  That could be a nice middle point between online/print invites.  You still save on paper and postage not having a separate RSVP instert/mailer, but older and more traditional guests will still take it seriously.

@DC_ChicagoBride: 

         I can’t say I know any websites that offer e-vites for weddings. The only thing I could think of is to use a program to design a wedding invitation. Save the invitation you create and send it as a file to everyone’s e-mail. We had inivitations made but are doing a wedding website for RSVP to help save us money in stamps. We only have 1 guest we plan on sending the inivitation to via e-mail/facebook with the picture of the invitation as they live in Japan and we want to make sure they receive the invitation.

@DC_ChicagoBride:  I’ve received and evite for at least one wedding. I would suggest using Paperless Post. The invitations are more formal and you can get a few physical ones that match for people you know won’t understand an evite, like grandparents, or honored guests.
