not sure how to send the invitations.
any thoughts on this?
Paper invites are always classy. And, they can be kept as a keepsake or added to a family history at a later point. But, more people are using e-vites and facebook these days, so maybe that's just fine, too.
Entertain the way you entertain... within your budget, in your own style. However that is.
Make sure the older generation gets invitations in a way they understand...
It depends upon your family and friends. If e-mail is your norm for communication, then you might send e-vites. You could print one for his baby book or scapbook if you wanted to.
If you normally don't use e-mail, you could send paper invites.
If it's not a big deal to you to have actual invites, you could just call and extend an invitation verbally. Usually I do this when it's a less formal occasion.
