um yes and no. my cousin did it that way. but sometimes you have to save every penny and do emails instead of written ones. but sometimes it is better that you write or something else. not everyone checks emails in time.
Yes, I received two via email, and the RSVP were in a website link. It saves paper and gets the guest counted quickly with a section for comments. It allwoed for tou to wish the couple well, and where to mail in gifts, a breif story with pics from the proposal etc. I found it to be a very efficient.
It may be normal to invite people by internet to a wedding, yet I cannot help thinking it is sad that some people would not dedicate a little more time and effort to make the one day in their lives truly special: even details like invitations say a lot about a couple, and beautiful, handwritten invitations are a sign that they truly care about what they are about to enter into.
when my daughter got married-the first in my family-i ensured that the cards were sent personnaly-but when my son got married therafter- to my very close relative i visited them and gave cards but to my friends and other than my close relatives i sent by email and they appreciated and did attend the marriage
Formal events require formal invitations. But if you are getting married at the JP, wearing ripped jeans and the reception is BYOB then perhaps it's not necessary. Besides, hate to accidentally have a wedding invitation end up in my spam folder.
Yes off course this is normal now a days, to invite a people for your wedding via mail. As we are not able to send invitation personally therefore we used to go for mailing service. Put a scan copy of your invitation card and mail to the person whom you want to.
If you do not have the address of these people, maybe. We live in an era of political correctness so it would be preferred by some that they have a more formal invitation, but really it depends on your circumstance

This day is all about the bride and the groom, it's up to them to decide how they want their wedding to be be. Their family and friends should honor that to the best of their ability. It's really not a bad idea as most young couples could use the money for better things than stamps and paper that will just end up in land fills while starting out married life.
Email invitations just do not have the same effect as printed stationary - Wedding Invitations. Most couples look forward to sending printed invitations to their friends, family and coworkers to announce their upcoming marriage. It is a way to reflect their commitment and their excitement of their special day. We find most guests expect to receive printed invitations in the mail as they also serve as a functional detail. They inform your guests of all the essential wedding info - who's getting married, who's hosting the ceremony, where, when, and what time the ceremony will take place, most invitations also include the RSVP information. Additionally all professionally printed invitations, unlike emails, are proofread by pros assuring that all guests receive all the same and correct information about the ceremony.
Dear Topaz72, I hope you'll send out personally received wedding invitations. E-mails are ok for Tupperware type parties, but even those are better received when followed up by a phone call. E-mails often slip by, and are overlooked. For a fancy or intimate occasion, such as a wedding, it is nice to send out invitations. You can find nice invitations that won't cost a fortune. One of the nicest I've received was a couple who sent a cute and casual photo of themselves at a park. They included all of the information, along with the way to rsvp. It was sent out and personal, but was also cost effective. Another idea is to send out personal invites through regular mail but set up a wedding website that guests can view. Here you can include photos of you as a couple, and include all of your wedding info. You include the website on the invites you send out. You can update/ add to this website, and have fun making it reflect your personalities and style. I enjoyed receiving a personal invitation to my daughter's friends wedding, and being able to go on their wedding website to enjoy their photos and information included there.
