Three great online invite sites: Evite

Paper invitations may still be the most popular route (as well as the most traditional and formal) for weddings, but with all of the other wedding-related events, electronic invites can play a part: for engagement parties, save-the-dates, bridal showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, post-wedding brunches and more. Plus, more and more couples are using online invites for the big day, because they want a more casual wedding, want to be a little more green or just want to save some money.

Web sites offering free online invitations have existed for years now, but the features they offer continue to improve. In my next three posts, I'll take a look at three of my favorites.

Evite
This online invitation Web site has been around since 1998, which has given the company a lot of time to perfect its product. Evite offers a large amount of deigns to choose from within each theme, and you can even create a custom invitation by uploading your own images and choosing your colors. Some of the special features available for the invitation include:

Potluck, Supplies and Cash: Add a list of items you would like guests to bring to the event, and as guests check items off, the invite automatically updates what is still needed. You can also request payment from guests to contribute to the party fund.

Polls and Suggestions: Get input from your guests by adding a poll (e.g. Where should we go first for drinks?) or by asking them to suggest a date or time.

Registry Information: Integrated with Gifts.com, you can choose to add links directly to your wedding registries. Or, add a link to Gifts.com's search tool and let guests find it themselves.

Plus, Evite gives you more than just an invitation tool. The site also wants to help you plan your party. Poke around on Evite and you will find:

  • Theme ideas
  • Planning checklists
  • Budget and drink calculators
  • Recipes
  • eCards
Evite's newest feature offers mobile phone integration with its online invitations. You can now send text message invites, forward invite details to your own phone and more.

Don't miss my reviews of two other online invitation sites: Pingg and My Punchbowl.
