What is the best way to invite guests online to casual gatherings at your home? Evite, Facebook, or some other way?

We like to occasionally host casual gatherings at our home for BBQs, birthday parties, etc, and I'm wondering what most people use to send out invitations online. I don't seem to get the best response with Evite, but I have a few friends who are not on Facebook. For example, with an Evite, I might invite 50 people, but only 20 will respond. Should I just invite guests by creating a Facebook event and send an email to those people who don't have a Facebook account? It's frustrating to try to plan for food when people don't RSVP. How do you encourage people to RSVP?
