After you send your invitation, as the host of the event you will only receive an event confirmation email. This email will contain a direct link to your invitation, which you may use to view and access your event.
Our system can only process an email address as either a guest or a host, but not both. Even if you add an email address of yours that is attached to your Evite account, such as a secondary email address that is under your Evite settings already, our site will recognize that this email is associated with the host. You would have to invite yourself with an email address that is NOT associated with your Evite account.
