Try Atomeet For Event Planning And Why I’m Not Using Evite Anymore

First of all, let me give you a little bit of background as to why I have such beef with Evite:

It was two days before New Year’s Eve and I finally decided to send out invites for the New Years party I had planned on having for at least a month.  That part was my bad.  I’m a procrastinator, but thankfully, so are my friends because most of them didn’t reply to the Evite until the day of the party.  The problem?  Evite went down for planned maintenance on New Year’s Eve.  So here I was, all dressed up with enough food for 10 people (but also 30 people because I didn’t really know who was coming) yelling at my boyfriend to make phone calls to see if anyone was coming at all.

The funny thing is, that originally I created my invites using Pingg, which I previously reviewed here, and was really excited to NOT use Evite when my boyfriend told me that I should really use a service that people are familiar with.  I should have known better.

This is where Atomeet comes in.  Atomeet is another event/party planning service that is both free and easy to use.  You begin creating your event right from the homepage and your guests don’t need to sign up for anything in order to RSVP.  You can add fun colors and themes to your event page and guests can write on the event page wall, but that’s about it.  Do you really need much more when trying to organize something like a group dinner?

If you don’t find that Pingg or Atomeet are the right fit for your event, also check out Anyvite which I previously reviewed here.

  1. Thanks for mentioning Anyvite! I’m not sure I’d trust your boyfriend’s judgment anymore 😉 If we should only use thing people are familiar, we’d all be stuck on AOL still!

  2. You might wanna also check out http://evitealternatives.com – I like pimping their name when I see someone using evite.
