So I’m hosting a baby shower for some friends of mine – what are dopers’ thoughts on sending evites instead of paper invitations? I’d like to save a few dollars on stamps, and I figure it will be easier to track RSVPs, send reminders, etc.
FWIW here’s the details: it will be at the house of the parents-to-be (not ideal but my place is too small and a restaurant is way out of my budget), we’ll cook a meal but nothing fancy. The guests will will mostly friends of the couple and I think it’s safe to assume they all use email. The only person who might not is the grandma-to-be, and I can just call her.
So you do think an evite would look tacky or make people take the event less seriously (not RSVP, not bother to show)? I actually don’t care of the people invited think I’m lazy, but I don’t want the couple-of-honor to feel like I’m phoning this one in.
General thoughts appreciated.
