    I don’t have strong feelings on this for the shower (I do for more formal things, like the wedding itself).  I love evites for small casual parties; I personally wouldn’t like my BMs using them for the shower, but like you said, I’d be grateful that anyone was throiwing me a party at all.

    I get evites for things all the time and I always forget about them but I have never forgotten a paper invite event.  I also just find them more appropriate for a bridal shower, it is a once in a lifetime special event, therefore deserving of a more formal invite.

    I have strong feelings towards more evites for things… Saves time, money and paper =) Were not having a bridal shower but for the bachelorette party were probably just calling everyone or facebooking them… I don’t see wasting money where you just don’t have to.

    @MrsDrRose612:  just be honest and say that you would appreciate paper invitations. Your Bridesmaid or Best Man asked because she wants to know, so i think it’s ok to state your preference.

    I had paper invitations for my shower, but if we had evites, I wouldn’t have had any issues with it. The shower itself is so special – this is so minor compared to the fun times you will have at the shower! 🙂

    I don’t mind the concept, but I’m with you in that I loved my physical shower invitations as a memento of the special time.

    I don’t like evites, I usually forget about them.

    I really don’t mind. There are some super cute e-vites out there! At least it’s not a facebook event or a really poorly written email (yes I have received both).

    I love electronic invites, however not all of my friends and family are as computer savvy.  I find that many people don’t get the invite even – so you spend a lot of time following up with people to make sure they get the information.  It’s the entire reason I didn’t do all electronic invites for my wedding.

    Since they’re throwing the shower, I would leave it up to them. However, I’d probably cringe about it a little bit lol. 

    Maybe just offer to “help” and send a few cute/cheap invitation ideas their way for consideration, then let them make the final decision. If they’re worried about keeping track of people, they could always do an online RSVP with the paper card.

    I always like pretty paper things, but tbh… evites are easy with a tech savvy guest list. And I know my bms have a ton of other things going on in their lives. If they haven’t ordered paper invites (which need enough time), evites is the logical way to go.

    My bridesmaids used Paperless Post for my shower invitations. They were super cute and a ton of people have told me how much they loved them.
