My mom and dad want to throw an engagement party for me and my FI. Awesome! Problem is my mom wants to do Evites & I'm feeling it might be ok to shoot an email to my family member (we're all rather chummy) but I think it'd be awkward for my parents first contact with my FI's grandparents would be through an email. I gave her mailing address for his side of the family. She kind of put up a stink about it. I told her it was ok to cut corners w/ people you knew, but it's a matter of etiquette. I'm not trying to be a snob, I'm just trying to imagine how I'd feel if out of the blue I got an email from my nephew's fiance's mother (whom I've never met) inviting them to a party. A little weird, don't you think???
