    Has anyone done evite STD's? I'm thinking of going this route to stay in budget. I figure the STD's are informal so an evite would be fine. If I do I was looking forward to adding some youtube videos of the resort and other miscellaneous information. If you have please share your experience. Thanks!

    We used a starfish evite & stated the following:

      thank you ladies! I'm positive I'm going the evite STD route then will send out formal invites afterwards. Majority of our guests are tech savvy so it's not a bothersome. As for the parents they actually wouldn't mind at all. They prefer word of mouth and usually don't care about the paper STD. I figure this would help us in our budget. I read on here that mywedding.com has e-std's so I will look into this and go this route. Thanks!

      E STDs sounds like a great idea!  It sounds practical and informative, which I like, but I don't want the guests to feel like I am skimping on them.  How do guests react?

      Hi @SwissWedding - We did e-STDs but we don't really have anyone on our guest list who isn't online except my grandma. It was important to be able to link to our website where all the travel and resort information is. We used appycouple.com for the wedding site because there is a smartphone app as well as the website. People are actually using the app and pretty much everyone viewed the site, so I'd say it worked well! No negative feedback.

      In today's day and age people wouldn't even think twice about it!

      www.paperlesspost.com or www.celebrations.com are good sites to check out - You can send it so it has a little animation when the person opens their email that looks like they are opening and envelope. We ended up using celebrations.com. It is great because I can see who opened the email. There are a few people who didn't and I was able to figure out that we had their email address wrong! We didn't want anyone to miss it.
