The practice of giving formal, printed invitations is fast becoming obsolete in this digital era. Text messaging, emails, e-vites, social media and group conversations have become the norm. Few people take the time to give a bit of personal touch through printed invitations. Not all is lost, however: Big birthday parties, milestone events, weddings, and business programs still call for printed invitations, if only to reiterate the importance of the occasion.
Today, those who go the traditional way of mail invitations do so not for the formality of the act itself, but to help set the tone of the event. For instance, extravagant parties call for formal invitations, wedding invites have a romantic flair to them, and Halloween parties tend to be more spooky or creative.
More than setting the tone, invitations also tend to be informative. While evites can be informative in themselves, the personal touch is not something that one can expect from them. Online invitations are usually short and sent out by the bunch. Traditional ones tend to include the name of the guest and full details regarding the event.
Most of all, printed invitations are more memorable than most get-togethers posted on your group chat -- which may easily get drowned in a stream of messages. A tangible invitation serves as a physical reminder of the event itself. You’re likely to keep where you will easily see it, like the refrigerator door, or your pin-board, or even by your dresser with the rest of your mail.
