With the holidays coming up, there are always parties to plan, and people to be in touch with. It also includes a lot of travel, planning ahead, and people being hard to get ahold of. I have always loved the practicality of e-vites, for these reasons. People always have their phones, which means they can get their emails anywhere and anytime these days.
