Save-the-Date Postcards

February 27th, 2013 by     

I finally found the perfect save-the-date cards. After months of searching for the PERFECT one, I finally decided that instead of ordering “cookie cutter” cards that I wanted to find someone, who would design the ones I wanted in the way I wanted.

Another factor in my save-the-date cards was the fact that, like everything wedding related, they are yet another expense. In talking with a coworker of mine, I found out there her husband owned a sign and graphics company in my community and would able to design a postcard-like save the date card that I really wanted to do. Working with a company besides a traditional wedding-inspired company gave me many options at a fraction of the cost. I wanted to ease of having my cards printed as postcards for all of our outside invites but also to cut back on the cost of postage. I submitted my ideas to her husband and he worked with me on the design to create a save-the-date card that was specifically what I wanted, sending me proof after proof until it was perfect.

    Great idea! Postcards are a much less expensive option as far as postage is concerned too!

    I have also seen people send other fun items. I like the idea of sending a snow globe for a winter wedding, or golf balls for a resort wedding. You can even send cookies, chocolate kisses or even pears for “the perfect pair” theme. Why not think outside of the box to let your guests know your wedding will be something unforgettable and raise the excitement and “wow” factor!
