  • I have no problem with e-vites or E-RSVPs. I think it is a vaild option given the technology that is available an e-vite can be just as personal as a card. Plus it is quicker and more accurate as far as you know when it will be in the invitee's mailbox. I don't know about texting. texting though widely used seems less personal. Texting is mostly done in short script and abbreviation. I wouldn't see it as rude or anything just like I was an after thought. I don't know why i feel like there is a difference though.

  • I use regular invitations. I think it's rude if you email or text an invite and IMO it shows lack of etiquette. I will never use it and I don't always check my email.

  • I'm fine with e-vites. I don't know if Miss Manners has weighed in on the subject.

    I don't care for texting in any event...only for emergencies.

  • i prefer reg invitations or even a reg phone call. not everyone checks their email or texts daily. i guess im old fashion :).

  • I'd take it as a joke. I just asked my dd if she was going to send her wedding invitations out with evite!

  • Depends on the party. I think its fine for casual parties like a get together or birthday. But any formal type of party, like showers, anniversaries, and weddings, no I don't think they are appropriate. But I would still respond regardless and not be offended.

  • I'm not sure I would take an evite too seriously... especially if it was a formal function kind of thing. If its just a close get together then I think thats fine but for things like bday party's and such I say go for the invitations. I think that rsvp's are okay via email though.

  • i use e-vites for save the date type notes with people i want to make sure are going to come, esp. those who check their email often, i will then usually send out paper invites as well.

  • I don't have a problem with evites I think they are acceptable, being that everything is going electronic ie. email, no one hardly uses "snail" mail. But with that said I never got a text invite and I'm not sure about that one. I mean there are alot of people that have cell phones so I guess your invite would get read but I'm not sure I would take a text invite seriously.
