Welcome to part 3 of my wedding series! I’m so happy to be making these posts for you guys!
Today I’m going to be talking about my Save the Date cards.
My save the dates were actually postcards! I ordered them from Zazzle.com, I got 96 for about $0.89 a piece. Yes I only have a 60 person wedding but I knew I had to send one to certain people who I know aren’t coming to the wedding… why you ask? Good question… I don’t think I have an answer.
When I got the postcards I was super happy with them but the back was blank besides a line through the middle like a normal postcard. Sadly I had no idea how to fill out a postcard… go ahead… call me stupid. I looked it up online then started filling them out.
Once I was ready to stamp them my mom informed me that postcards have specific stamps that are less money than normal stamps, I had no idea! When I bought the postcard stamps, coincidentally they were also beach themed!
After I sent them all out, I started to get compliments on my save the dates and people were telling me how cute the cards were.
What I learned: buying your save the dates and customizing them isn’t as hard as others talk about, filling out your save the dates can be easy if you just sit down and focus on them, postcards have cheaper stamps, HOW to actually fill out a postcard, and also the design of your save the date isn’t the most important.
The save the date design doesn’t matter so much to people, they won’t remember those postcards they received in the mail 6 months before your wedding. In my opinion, what matters is your invitations. That’s what a person will remember if they even remember that at all. So if you have a budget spend less on save the dates and more on invites.
Thanks for reading! See you with my next wedding series!
