    @78h2o:  maybe take a lead from your sister.  When your sister has a birthday party does she send paper invites? I personally love e-vites because then I’ve always got access to the invitation by clicking on the internet. But there IS something sweet about paper invitations.  Makes the event a little more ‘special’.  Is the shower going to be casual?

    I think it depends on the guest of honor…. if you think she’d tell you the truth, ask.  If not, gauge on how she feels.  I know if it were my family, the older folks wouldn’t have access to email so I’d need to do a paper invite.

    My gut says play it safe and go the snail mail route.

    I think it’s okay and mail invites to those that are not computer savvy such as older aunts, grandma’s.

    Totally depends who the guests are. Are we talking friends and close family? Or older family members and extended family? Coworkers?

    paper is better! less likely to get lost, most people get their mail regularly and open regularly. sometimes emails get lost.

    @78h2o:  

    I like the idea of doing vistaprint. Evites are fine but paper invites are better but they don’t have to be tricked out Etsy $3/invite either! 🙂

    Good call on using vistaprint.  I chose that an e-vite would be ok, but that paper is much nicer.

    It makes no difference to me if I get an evite or a paper invite, but some people don’t check their email much so those people may need a phone call as well. Evites are kind of nice too because they don’t get lost and you get a reminder email closer to the event.
