For any event we have, I send out real invitations and about a week later after they have had a chance to get their mail, I set up a Facebook event because I know I get a LOT more RSVPs when they can easily do it from Facebook rather than calling.

I only invited immediate family so I just called everyone. If I were inviting other people I would probably send invitations through the mail

Our 1st sons baptism we sent out invitations (this was before facebook existed).
Our 2nd son we invited folks through facebook and allowed folks to rsvp through a chat. It worked out pretty good for us and was MUCH MUCH CHEAPER!!!
However, after the baptism we still sent out paper thank you notes to those who attended!

 Paper invitations are correct. Older relatives might be offended by facebook or evites. I would give them the option of RSVP on all media, that way it's easier for most.

We only invited close family to our sons so we just told them ourselves about it.

my children have only had dedications, but we did the same thing- only invited immediate family as well. if i were going to invite a lot of people... you could use an e-vite( invitation emailed to everyone) there are sites like punchbowl.com that are free

I would do the paper invitations. They are the correct way of informing family and friends of your intentions for a function that involves family and or friends. Makes them feel special on what is considered a special occasion anyway.  :)

You either call or send paper invitations, Face book is tacky
