So with two weeks to go until the 30th birthday party, the invites went out today. Most invitation rules suggest a two week window with one week before the event for the deadline for RSVP.
We went the simple and easy route and used Evite. Evite is a great site and has a number of invitations that can be customized. The best thing of all: it is FREE and a great way to keep track of RSVPs. It also provides a space where the important information about the party can be found readily by the guest and you can invite them through Facebook. No annoying phone calls asking for directions or the time! It is a great option for wedding invitations, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinners.
The invite we used actually had the newly chosen color scheme [which I will talk about in the next post] and I easily inserted a picture of Mario to go with the Super Mario Bros theme. It took about 30 minutes and I was done and happy with the outcome.
Have you used Evite? And the more important question is, do you RSVP?
