    brittany.l.mcmackin:  while I understand time and money constraints — Facebook really doesn’t seem appropriate for wedding related activities. Why not use a wedding website or even an evite?

    I just think it’s uneccessary to use facebook when there are so many other ways to do it.  I totally understand budget restraints, being a budget bride myself, but I have already planned to have simple, classy invites which I will hand deliver to anyone local to me (Probably about 70%) and send off to the interstaters.  Really will not cost the earth.  We are also having a wedding website to RSVP to.  Why not do an email with a link to a wedding website that can be made for free?  Or at worst, do a facebook invite with a link to the wedding website, which you can actual customise to be able to RSVP for specific guests?  If I received a FB invite for a wedding, I’m sorry to say I wouldn’t take it seriously at all and would probably forget about it/delete it due to the amount of notifications you’d get from it.

    I know someone who had a bachelor party in Las Vegas, but sent-out e-mail invitations, to save money. I never understand some peoples’ prioroties with money.

    Normally I try not to respond to threads that are many years old, but given that it has been resuscitated, I will address the points made.

    I think a Facebook invitation would be the height of laziness.  I would probably not take it seriously.  A college educated person should have enough knowledge of etiquette to know that the biggest social event of your life requires a written invitation.

    Don’t give me that “I don’t have the time nor patience” excuse. Everyone is busy. Many people work the same hours or longer than you do.

    I don’t have the time nor the patience for laziness.

    Oribel013690:  Fiance and I got invited to a wedding via facebook. He is the coworker of the girl and for all her coworkers she just sent facebook invites, but she did sent real ones to closer people. But it really just made us feel like we werent worthy enough for the real invitation. I think you should always sent out real ones! There are such affordable options out there! 

    But we also didnt get a thank you note for the gift we gave. And i feel like that is because we just got a facebook invitation in the first place.lol. Because she was too lazy to get everyones address in the first place, when it came to thank you notes she didnt have addresses so she just didnt send them.

    Facebook invite is so tacky!! It makes your guest feel like they are not worthy enough of the dollar it would cost to find an affordable invite and mail it.

    Oribel013690:  Had a friend who did the same thing. They planned the weddin after being engaged for a month, which has happend 6 months after dating. ANYWHO they sent facebook invites and wanted gamestop giftcards or money put towards a house (since they wanted to pay in full… good luck) for their wedding gifts…. They’re sort of iditos, but they make each other happy

    I had to vote other. We are doing a super small destination wedding, but we are choosing to live stream our ceremony and send out invites via Facebook. We would never send our actual invites via facebook and were very careful to make sure it was worded so people didn’t think it was an invite to the wedding.
