I'm done with paper invitations!

Evite has given me the best experience possible when it comes to sending out online invitations. It integrates with my Google contacts so that I always have emails handy and don't have to go searching for them. It keeps my RSVPs all in one place, simple and organized. And my guests get a beautiful designed invitation in their email to my event that they can easily RSVP to. What more could I ask for?

PROS

Aside from my wedding invitations, Evite is the only way I send out party invitations these days. What I like most about this software is the beautifully designed (FREE) invitations that I can choose from. There's so many to choose from for all kinds and every event you can think of (for example, Friendsgiving, Girls Night Out, etc.) I also like that you can see who has viewed your invitation and who hasn't.

CONS

It used to be that you couldn't make your own invitation designs, but now they've added that. Except to truly have all the design liberty, you have to purchase either a one event premium fee or an annual premium pass. Which isn't really that bad when you think about the money you could be spending on paper invitations, postage, and time saved on collecting RSVPs.

Evite is a wonderful solution to online event planning

I've used Evite multiple times, from baby showers and weddings, to corporate events and fundraisers. Evite has simplified the invitation and rsvp process as well as communication between host and attendees.

PROS

I love being able to create custom invitations to match my event theme. Evite also makes it simple to track the number of attendees, declines, and those in limbo. They also allow communication and updates between host and attendees as well as seemless event registry.

CONS

Evite is great, although I would love to have a little more customization when it comes to invitations. However, they still have a wonderful selection that can cater to any event and style.

Reason for choosing Evite

Evite is the more popular online event planning software

Reasons for switching to Evite

Evite is probably the most widely used and popular program for event planning.

Too complicated

Overall it is not that great of a product. Confusing to email and send the invites and annoying that it asks for gifts and has advertisements all over the page.

PROS

I like the fact that I could create a nice invitation with lots of selection and templates. I like getting the RSVP responses via email.

CONS

It is pretty confusing how to import or where to make your contact list once you have created the invite. It also doesn’t allow you to email a reminder about the event (at least I could not find the email list back again). I don’t like that it adds a “gift” option, you should be able to turn that function off.

Evite: Never Need a Physical Address Again!

The biggest problem that Evite solves for me is that I do not have to have physical addresses for the people I want to invite to an event. As a person receiving an Evite, I find it convenient to be already sitting at my computer or using my phone to check my calendar for my availability and to RSVP without making a phone call. It really comes down to convenience with Evite. With so many events all the time, either events that I throw or events I attend, Evite simplifies the process.

PROS

I love that Evite sends invitations specifically to email addresses. Even if I wanted to send an invitation by snail mail, I couldn't. I don't have very many physical addresses anymore, but I do have also everyone's email. I can even upload my email address into Evite so that I don't even have to type them in!

CONS

While I do save time overall with Evite, I often loose time looking at all the different options. While they do have the different event types nicely categorized, I find that all the various options (adding pictures, etc.) can be overwhelming. It can feel like too many options. I often go back and forth on designs.
