I considered doing postcards for RSVP's, but my FI insisted it was tacky & that his sisters would surely comment on it. Funny how none of them actually RSVP's anyway!

 

I did pocket fold invites, so I was just going to make my RSVP insert into a postcard by addressing the reverse side & sticking a stamp on it.

 

Make sure you meet the US Postal requirements if you do this:

 

You may think that your mailpiece is a "card," because it is a single sheet of paper. But to qualify for mailing at First-Class Mail card rates, a card must be:

  • Rectangular
  • At least 3-½ inches high x 5 inches long x .007 inch thick
  • No more than 4-¼ inches high x 6 inches long x .016 inches thick

I'm trying this out with my STD's. i sent 2 boarding passes per STD and pre-stamped the second one so that they can mail back as a prelim RSVP. I just mailed them last week and gave them until July 4th to respond (1year before the wedding).

I haven't mailed mine out yet. Can you keep us posted on how the RSVPs come along? I'm wondering how many people are going to respond to them.

We made 80 STD's to send out and included a postcard to give a tentative reply. But we got 40 of them mailed before my dad got sick and we stopped sending them until we decided to postpone the wedding. We gave people until the end of April to send them back (to beat the postal increase in May). So far we've gotten 22 back (9 yes and 12 no).

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
