    Hi Everyone,

    My husband and I are probably going to have an informal BBQ AHR. Since it's a casual atmosphere, I'm wondering if sending an Evite is too tacky? Has anyone done that?

    Thanks in advance!

      I'm having a traditional AHR with all the trimmings and I wanted to do an evite, but my mom looked at me like I was crazy and so did my FI so we went with paper invites that just went out yesterday (woohoo!!).

      I think for casual events evites are perfectly fine, just remember you might still have to do some sort of paper invite for the guests without email (grandparents maybe?).

        I have to agree with Lori. I think for some that an evite is fine but others will appreciate the extra effort. I always like to send any invite in the mail. Because I love getting them. Way better than a bill. Nobody write letters anymore. The only thing to come in the mail is bills and junk mail. So for me, I feel like it is giving an unexpected surprise. And I always get comments on how nice it was to receive something else in the mail, and it always got opened first!

          You can do whatever you want. We are also having a casual bbq AHR/send off party and we are sending out an evite to everyone. Everyone I have talked to says that would be fine and they would not be offended by it at all. Best of luck!

            We are planning on going with an evite for our AHR because we are really trying to put our budget towards food and drinks for everyone. I hope it doesn't come off as being too casual.

              I think an evite is fine personally but do you have members in your family/friends that you are inviting that are older and/or not computer savy, just something to think about :) You can always check out vista print too for cheap invites.
