Electronic invites save time and money!

Rather than taking the time to send written invitations for your next party, save time, money, and paper by sending electronic invitations. Here are a few of the easiest and quickest invites to send over the Web.

Evite is one of the original sites for electronic invitations. With themed invites for everything from March Madness and Twilight parties to fundraisers and professional events, Evite has customizable content that allows users to poll guests for event start times and enables hosts to track what food and beverages guests will be bringing to the party. The site will also track RSVPs and sends out reminders before your event.

Offering party planning services as well as electronic invitations, touts cool features like a "Date Decider" option which allows hosts to poll guests about the best days for a party, and cute electronic invites that look like real cards. The site also lists wacky holidays, providing potential hosts with dozens of reasons to party.

Featuring beautiful photographs on its invitations, allows hosts to send invites via e-mail, social networking sites, and even personalized event web pages, all for free. For a fee, Pingg will send paper copies of the invites you design, saving valuable time that would be spent addressing and stuffing envelopes.

Specializing in adorable electronic announcements and save the date notices, allows users to customize content with their own photos and embellishments. Like Pingg, PurpleTrail also allows users to send paper versions of their electronic invitations, making it a wonderful mixed-media option for party planners.
