For what it''s worth, I think you shared your opinions in a very respectful wayDate: 2/18/2009 1:12:33 PM
ETA: I mean no disrespect to others who chose to do so, whether it''s shower or wedding invites. There are lots of reasons to do it and not to do it. Simply my opinion.

I guess it depends how formal the shower is. I think there is a wide range in which an e-vite plus follow up phone calls to grandma are doable. Most of the showers I''ve attended have been held in someone''s home. Nice brunch and pretty outfits etc...but under 30 people or so. So maybe the size has something to do with it? It is a cost saving method that isn''t likely to be thought to heavily about by guests.
Me too!! I feel like a packrat sometimes. I save stuff for the scrapbooking I will probably never do.Date: 2/18/2009 3:28:58 PM
ETA: I save stuff. I like being all sentimental about that kind of stuff.
I think that's the biggest thing for me - how would one know how to dress? If the evite only says something generic like, "Join us for Jane's bridal shower, here is where she's registered: linkylinkeroo" how is one to interpret the expected attire?Date: 2/18/2009 5:49:35 PM
But if it's a casual cookies and punch shower in someone's home, or as others have mentioned, it's a fun event with some sort of theme like a bbq, pool party, at a bowling alley, etc, then shoot, the e-vite doesn't seem out of place at all, because everything else (attire, choice of gift) is a lot more varied and isn't dictated by the level of formality of the invite.
