Considering the past decade's astounding technological innovation, the fact that the most-used invitation site essentially hasn't changed is like everyone deciding that no matter what gaming systems come out, they're still going to buy a Sega CD. Get your inviting up to speed, with MyPunchbowl
The Framingham-based invitation site recently revamped and upgraded their operation, adding a Design & eCard studio that creates cards so visually different from Evites, your friends might actually read them, giving you at least a fighting chance of someone making it to your wedding. The true beast's the Design Studio feature, which indulges your inner OCD with options to customize nearly everything, from choosing 35 realistic-looking "papers", to thousands of stock pics, to their own custom fonts (Clifford 18, Rough Roman...Albino?), and even different e-ribbons to tie around the final product, giving you at least a fighting chance of someone making it to your bachelorette party. If you just need a humble greeting card, MPB's eCard studio has hundreds of fully tailorable one-offs; you can either choose to DYO or pick from their stock choices, updated constantly to keep current with upcoming holidays, from the popularly observed, to the popularly befuddling (you know where you stand, National Peanut Brittle Day)
If you still feel confused and scared by all your options, MPB offers up a conservatively dressed yet sublimely attractive e-girl named Penelope who will hold your hand through the creation process, offering everything from party planning advice to how to personalize your eCards with video, even though in your heart of hearts, you know you're forever committed to the MIDI.
