I purchased a pdf of a bridal shower invitation via etsy and have the option of either printing them and mailing them out or sending them via e-mail. After thinking about it I wondered if it would be proper etiquette to e-mail the invitations rather than getting them printed ($65). Is this something that you would think was tacky or is it ok?

My Future Mother-In-Law threw mine and did the e-mail thing, a lot of people didnt get them and it was a lot of work trying to make sure everyone had gotten the e-mail, i would have prefered snail mail so i was sure everyone knew but that’s just my expriance 🙂

I’d say it depends on your crowd (is everyone you’re sending them to tech savvy?) but I don’t see any problem with e-mailing them in theory.

If cost is a factor can you print them at home? I think the email route would have to depend on the guest list. If all of your guests are tech savvy then I don’t think you’d run into too many problems as long as they check their email regularly. I know I don’t check my email very often so something like this would get lost in my inbox really quick.

I printed invitations at Staples for pretty cheap. Emailed it to them, they pulled up the file, printed it on the paper I chose. Turned out great!

65.00 is really steep. You should be able to do much better price wise at kinkos or print at home. You could even order them as matte photos. I will say that there are a lot of us girls in my group getting married this summer so shower invites are flying. One of the hostesses of a friends shower did an evite and multiple people have made comments about how impersonal and sad it was. I wouldn’t recommend doing electronic. It’s the one opportunity shell get to have pretty bridal things and special events that are dedicated to her and her marriage.

Thanks for all of the help and opinions 🙂
I ended up printing them at Office Depot for $25
