I think it depends on your level of comfort. Your wedding ispersonal and you should do whatever is comfortable for you. If you felt most comfortable calling everyone to personally invite them, that's your choice (Dean suggested that we do this, but I was not calling 50 people to say the same thing over...and over...and over :P)

 

If you think everyone is email savvy go for it!!!

We sent ours via email becuase we wanted to get the word out and I knew it would take forever to get everyone's address (I was so right too, that's a whole other story). It was great as far as letting everyone know, but not so good as some people didn't check their emails or it got junked. I just sent my invitations out early to make sure everyone had something tangible to look at. So while not tacky, it has both its positives and negatives.

It certainly is the greener method. I think your guests that want to go will go no matter how they hear about the wedding. I did send out STDs but a bunch of the communication was by word of mouth. I think the STDs were probably pretty much useless.

 

e-vite is good because it sends reminders to people that haven't rsvp'd. That way they can't just delete it accidentally. They would have to delete several emails.

My vote...it is not tacky at all...but is also not going to be practical or effective for all the reasons listed above. If you are going to pair it with another mode of notification, maybe, but then probably just a waste of time...

i don't think it's tacky, and is especially good if you need people to get the info asap. i would use a service like evites, this way it can keep track of them for you and you can set it up to remind people by a certain date.

evite is also nice because you can see who viewed it, not just who rsvped.

 

if you are avoiding STDs for the cost, you can do vista print postcards. it's about $7 for 100 & stamps are 26cents (they may have gone up 1 cent today with the new increase).

 

This is what I did for my STDs & my guests loved them. I see them all over on people's desks, fridges, etc.

I agree with most here who say to mail them.

Because email can easily be deleted or put in a 'bulk/spam' folder, so they may not even get it.

We sent out magnets for people to stick on their refrigerators as a reminder.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
