no experience with this, but i’ve heard from the bee that you can get invites for next to nothing on vistaprint…apparently they have a ton of coupons.

personally, i love having invitations as keepsakes.

I wouldn’t send e-vites for my wedding invitations, especially if its a full out formal event. You can find some really cheap ones out there that look nice or do them yourself.Also,  If everyone you know is not as tech savvy or does not check their email often, this could pose some problems in my opinion. Good luck!

My Fiance wanted to setup a phone in for the RSVPs – basically they would call in, enter some code, and they press whatever numbers for number attending, which food, etc. Even grandparents have phones and can call in with their info, so it’s not restricting to people with internet.

I shot the idea down, but it would be a way to save on return pieces (and stamps!).

I agree with PP’s that you should try to send out real invites. They could be very simple and you could have other info on a wedding website, so you only have to include a small invite. You could also cut costs by getting lightweight paper and having guests RSVP online or over the phone primariy so that you could save a ton on postage.

We’re having an online RSVP – we’re still sending out response cards, but we aren’t providing postage. Online is easier for us to track, more economical, and more green.
