I am trying to build an email alert to send to related contact. However, the contact field is on the parent object of current object. So I am thinking how can I walkaround this issue.

Formula fields don't take email as the return type so I can't build a formula field based on that. Trigger is viable but a bit pain now at this point. Is there any other approach rather than trigger?
