No I haven’t but I think that most bees here will think it is “tacky”.

I ,on the other hand, think they’re GREAT! Seriously, invites are such a stupid waste of money and paper. I don’t keep birthday cards, why the hell would I keep someones dumb invitiation! GRRR I am in the process of doing my invites and I hate them SO MUCH! /rant

Sorry, but seriously, I say do e-vites if you can! I really hope the world starts turning to only e-vites soon!

Well I fit in to the opinion that tranquility said in her first sentence.

My friends bridesmaids are using e-vites for her bachelorette party. They are getting annoyed because most people havent rsvped because they never check their email. I can’t imagine using them for a formal event like a wedding. Half my family can hardly turn on a computer.

For a birthday party or BBQ they don’t bother me, but for a wedding? I wouldn’t.

I completely plan on using Facebook!  I will make a small quanity of recycled paper invites to send to those not on fb, such as my Grandfather.  It is a small wedding though, so if they dont check their facebook, they will still know about it. 🙂

 

I not think it is ever tacky to save a tree 🙂 

I like my air clean!

They might be more common here with the postal strike.  Luckily, I have most of my RSVPs back.  If I were mailing my invites out now, I would be sending facebook messages and emails along with getting my family to help call relatives as well, because who knows how long they will take to arrive and how many will be lost (enough problems with that before the strike!).

I would have problems cutting out the invites entirely, I have guests who are sentimental and will keep them (I have an aunt who won’t send the RSVP card because she wants to keep the whole thing).

Some Americans might have Canadian guests.  They seriously might want to send an evite of some sort.  Of my 2 invitations sent to the states, both at least made it, but only one RSVP card made it back to me and it took over 2 weeks (based on the postmark).  I trust the couple that said they mailed it, it just never arrived.

I don’t think it’s necessarily tacky, but I do think that it does convey a message about the formality of the wedding.  Right or wrong, I probably wouldn’t take an invitation through email as seriously as one sent to my house.

Also, we did evites for my bachelorette party and it’s been a bit of a headache.  A lot of people didn’t check their email or it was going into junk email accounts.  If the person somehow didn’t get one, you have to delete them and re-add to the guest list. I can’t imagine having to do that with my wedding guest list.

As for Facebook invites, I’d probably think of that even less than evite invites.  I feel like myself, and most people I know, would give a wedding invite on Facebook about as much thought as any other party invitation.  If you want people to think of your wedding as a big deal and not another casual get-together, I’d steer away from these. (However, I have had people RSVP through Facebook which is completely fine with me.)

i used pingg for my daughters baby shower and i loved it so much that i will be using them for my wedding (although i will be having a small one) It was super convinient and you have so many more options for adding pictures etc etc i believe in saving trees and well i know the paper ones will probably be thrown away anyways ( thats what i do with our invites since i dont like clutter) i dont think people have the same appreciation for the work that goes into paper invites ( i helped with  my sisters wedding with these) with so many little details to make them perfect i was totally turned off

I received an evite for wedding. It wasnt tacky at all, but its just not for me. I for one dont like to waste paper and dont like to waste money so I sent out a very simple gatefold invite with one infor card, and all my RSVPS were online. I think for wedding at the very least its nice to mail an invite, even if its just one sheet or something minimal.

I’m doing e-vites, online RSVP, and E-thank you’s too. If that’s tacky, I am tacky. Shrug.
