I recently wrote a post about diy invites without realizing that I would need invitations for the rehearsal dinner and various other events. My friend did not use STD’s but used Evite instead. What do you think about using Evite for the STD, rehearsal dinner, etc.?

It would work okay, though I think it’s maybe a bit too casual for a wedding event. (I use it a lot for last minute casual house parties) One thing to be wary of though is that when you send the email, although you input your personal email address, the message is still sent from the Evite site and so it can get caught in some people’s spam filters. So if you don’t hear back from some people, double check that they got the invite.

my Fiance wanted to use evite, and i firmly slammed my foot down. i didn’t think it’d be appropriate for a wedding. plus there are people who are computer illiterate or who never check their email.
although i’m the evil bride that wants everyone to RSVP online.

- Wedding: August 2007 - The Wellington House in Fayetteville, NY
I used E-vite for the rehersal dinner invitations. We were inviting only immediate family, local aunts & uncles, wedding party and their date (althought that turned out to be about 55 people) so I didn’t think a formal invitation was needed.
You can see if there is anyone who doesn’t view the e-vite, so we just called (or had our parents call) those people and invite them personally.

i don’t see any problem with evite for rehearsal dinner and maybe the post wedding brunch.. the casual things. but if you want to be more fancy, then certainly an actual invitation would be appreciated.

Evite would be fine for a casual dinner but the problem may arise for those family members who aren’t so computer savvy.

- Wedding: October 2007 - Ceremony at a cement and stained glass cathedral and reception at a boutique hotel ballroom
for rehearsal dinner, we’re using evite plus phone for non computer folks. my friend used evite for save the dates, but that was mainly b/c they planned their entire wedding in a few months.

I think evite is perfectly fine for Save-The-Date Cards and rehearsal dinner invitations.
I think a better idea would be to just design an image and email it out to everyone. It’s a little more personal than evite, IMO.

I think it is great for events that aren’t that formal. We would have used it for our teeny rehearsal dinner, but we had some not so tech savvy peeps.
I second eisor’s suggestion of e-mailing a more personal design.

In general I love getting evites but I know a lot of people don’t even bother opening them and especially don’t bother responding. I would much rather get a paper invitation to save the date or for a rehearsal dinner. But if it’s a time crunch or something, I am sure it could work ok.
