Quick question, do you think its acceptable to have a facebook group and/or just email out invites for a bridal shower?
My Maid/Matron of Honor has done this for my shower and I just wanted to make sure she wasn’t breaking any major etiquette rules by doing so.
I know stamps and invites can be expansive so I feel rude even mentioning/bringing it up to her, especially since she is doing this for me and already spending allot of money on other things…
I believe that there will be a few people who don’t have email/ internet (basically just grandparents and maybe 1 aunt) that she will be mailing invites to, but only these people will receive paper invites (everyone else is just online)
Is this ok?

I was kinda weird about phone calls and fb being used for inviting our rehearsel dinner guests but ultimately… just like with that, your guests will be under the impression that you didn’t plan it and it’s on someone else.
I wouldn’t do that, but my sil had no problem with it so thats what she did. lol
I wouldn’t worry about it 😉

If this type of thing is acceptable in your group then I see no problem with it but I personally always prefer to receive a formal invitation for an event that I’m expected to attend. Maybe I’m just traditional in that sense but invites can be done for suuuuuper cheap if need be.

My BM’s just sent out an evite. It worked really well! Although sometimes I wish there was paper copies so i could have one.

It depends on how traditional and formal you and your friends are. I would have no problem with it. Nor would my friends. IMO the focus is getting the message across, not so much how the message is delivered, especially with the price of postage.
