My fiancé’s cousin did that and more than half the people didn’t receive the invite (and it wasn’t in our junk folders either!). He then had to call everyone because barely anyone had RSVPd and invite them over the phone.

I personally would strongly recommend not doing that but to each their own.

@solidarity: We used normal paper invitations (RSVP through phone and our wedding website), but I’ve received electronic baby shower invitations from Punchbowl. I think they were nice and worked well, so I wouldn’t have any problem getting an invitation like that. Sure, not as exciting as getting something in the mail – but just as functional. Perhaps worth your time to have a look at!

We’ll be sending magnet save the dates and paper invites, but we’re also sending email save the dates and invitations through glosite.  We’ve test-run it and it’s just great.  Glo combines a full event website with email correspondence.  Guests get something that looks like an envelope addressed to them, can click on it to see something just like any paper version you might also send, & when they click on that, it takes them directly to your website to rsvp and get more information.  It’s been a great all-in-one so far.  Depending on what functions you want and your number of guests, it isn’t free, but I think it’s well worth it.

We used theknot.com for our save the date email. I thought it worked very well and saved a little money. The only glitch is that it seemed to have a problem going thought to aol.com email address.

I used Paperless Post for our save the dates – we only needed to send about 15 but they were all received and it worked perfectly well.When we sent them, we were able to see the email addresses sent to, and were notified when they were opened. We also had the option enabled for people to send us messages in response, which a lot of our older relatives used and liked.

They add new designs fairly regularly so you might want to check a few times. I also liked that you got a certain number of ‘coins’ upon sign-up but could boost them by installing an app and some other things. Because we had so few to send out, they were free.

@solidarity:  Awesome!  I”m just about to send mine out today through PP.  

So you can order a paper version of the same invite?!?!  Somehow I missed that!  Definitely going to have to do that for grandparents and maybe one for a keepsake 🙂

ETA: aw damn, my design doesn’t have a paper version.

I did online save the dates and my sis is designing an online invitation. No way am I doing hard copy invites although I may print one to keep. I consider it wasteful nowadays & do everything I can online.
