It’s officially a year until I get married, woo hoo! Â And believe me – I have grandiose plans DIYing most of the planning from the invitations to the centerpieces. Â So when myÂ fiancÃ©’sÂ mother generously offered to throw us an engagement BBQ at her house, I had visions of BBQ sauce being sent out to guests with the event information on a label. Â However, my first month on the job coupled with weekends of long distance traveled exhausted my creative juices and I decided that in this case, a simple EVITE was suffice. Â This had as much to do with the nature of the event, a bbq, as with my busy schedule, but I’ve been very pleased with the results. Â Evite made it very easy for me, allowing me to choose my own format, pictures, text, and guestlist.Â Â Evite encourages guests to RSVP, so within days, I was better able to give my MIL to be a more accurate guest number.
Did you send out paper invitations for your parties? Â What’s the new etiquette for other party invitations (bachelorette, bridal, etc). ? Â Paper or electronic?
