    Hey Gals...

    Ok so I have a little confusion! I had my STD magnets made through Vista! Came out great! They say our names date and website! So do I need to send anything with them stating how to book? I am just scared people will get them and not know what to do with them! Does anyone have any suggestions HELPPP

      I used the great idea from another bride on the forum and included a information letter with my STDs. The letter basically spelled out specific details about the wedding and directed them to our website (which provides even more details) and also gave them our contact info. I also included the travel info that I received from my travel agent.

        that's a great idea to add a little informative letter. the more information the better. you always want to take into account the folks you have (if any, these days) that won't be visiting your website often because they aren't too tech savvy. there are tons of great templates on here for letters.

        maybe make a little travel brochure or something in addition to the STD?

        ...or you could keep it totally simple for the STDs and just wait until the invites go out to really lay a hardcopy of the info out there.

          I think a cover letter to go with the magnets is a great idea! And the gals are right, not everyone is tech savvy, so a hard copy would definitely ensure that your guests are aware of how to go about booking things.

            Hey Bethany-- so I was worried about people not having the internet or not getting the right info- and we wanted them to know right off that kids were welcome, so I printed out little "info cards" on cardstock (2 info cards per sheet of cardstock so I could still use cute little envelopes I had already bought). This is the info I included, and I attached the template (it's for a 6.5"x4.5" cardstock). Oh and my magnets were Vistaprint too :) This is the link to them: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t38223 Good luck!!

              I think an accompanying letter is a great idea, it could save you from having to answer the same question over and over :P

                I also did a letter detailing all of the information that people would need as everyone is not computer savvy enough to look at the website. I think that it's a great idea to do so... We just bought beach stationary at Staples and printed up a detailed letter to go with it; it only cost us the cost of the paper for letter; the $$ for the magnets and postage.

                      This is a great idea, I am actually using postcards for my save the date and will use the back of the postcard to provide guest with more information.
