Calendar Invites - Some People Seem to Not Like It

I realised some people don't like calendar invites.
I have always thought that it is one of the best ways to keep everyone on the same page.
Especially if it is across time zones and has meeting details to take note of.

My friend once told me when I scheduled dinner with him:

Him: I feel that it's a bit formal when you sent me a calendar invite for dinner.

Me: Oh I just wanted to put the details down so we can forget about it.

Him: I see. It just feels a bit too formal

I think people associate calendar invites with big corporate workplaces.
As such, it feels stifling.

However, I have friends that like calendar invites.
Because it allows keeping their schedules all in one place on the calendar.
One look at the calendar, they know where they need to go and what to do at what time.
