I didn’t click the link, but I’m just going to say, I don’t even like the idea.  I don’t like evites, I don’t like email invitations, I don’t like phoned invitations…so I doubt I’d like what equates to a text message invitation.  I’m very old fashioned and like a hard copy paper invitation delivered in the mail!

I think that’s pretty cool. 

I think also it depends on the crowd. Like most of our friends would be down with that. My grandparents would probably be confused. (There would be a 45 minute phone call that would go something like, “Ok, grandma, now click where it says RSVP… no, scroll down… use the mouse… no, the other click… right, okay, now click on the checkbox next to attending… no, the other click… now select how many people, that’s two for you and grandpa, in the dropdown… no, the the other click…” etc.)

I see also they ask for addresses for postal invitations. Are they going to send paper invites in addition to the mobile ones?

I do like it as perhaps a save the date. But I would prefer a paper invite with all the details on that I can stick on my fridge or something.

As an email or text message with a link it will get lost amongst the crazy amounts of mail that I get. And I’ll never be able to get it when i need the info quickly.

I was ticked off when a good friend simply texted me a picture of the ring when she got engaged instead of calling me, so I don’t think I’d like to receive that as an invitation. Too cold and impersonal.

And I agree with the poster above me — it would get lost in all the e-clutter. Invitations go right on the fridge, where it’s easy to see the info for both myself and my fiance.

It’s neat for a birthday invitation or a party, but not for a wedding.

I don’t like the idea. I agree with other users that it’s a bit impersonal. I also know plenty of people that don’t have smartphones capable of opening such an invite. If you were to do a mobile invite, I’d make sure you did it in addition to something tangible..

I think any wedding related invites should be sent by mail (STDs and formal invites).

I think digital is awesome for Save-The-Date Cards (especially for short engagements!) but I’d prefer a paper invite for the wedding – unless it’s super duper casual!
