I'm trying to save money on this wedding, so I'm thinking of not sending out a STD magnet or postcard.

 

I'm thinking FI and I (and our mom's) will just let everyone know by word of mouth or email.

 

Is that tacky?

 

Any idea of other ways to let people know without sending postcards etc.?

It wouldn't be tacky! I know several people that have sent out their STD by email, with a link to their website.

 

Just wondering, are you planning on sending out formal invitations closer to the date at all? I ask because FI and I decided to fork out the money to mail STDs, but we are not going to send out formal invitations closer to the date, we're going to do that via email since everyone will already have received their STD 9 months earlier and will have visited our website...

I think it's fine to email a STD or just a link to your site.

 

A postcard STD is the cheapest option though. You can get 100 postcards for about $10 on vistaprint and then postage is 27 cents on a regular sized card.

 

So you could do 100 postcards for less than $40 shipped.

 

Still, I think an email is fine. If you want to get creative, check out mailchimp or mad mimi which allows you to make an html email so you can make it decorative. Using those, you can also see how opened your email. They are free for less than 100 or so addresses.

Wedding Dresses - Wedding Cakes - Wedding Planning - Unique Wedding Ideas - By TheKnot.com lets you design your wedding website FOR FREE and there is an option to send a nice save the date that is designed with the background of your wedding website and there is a link on the save the date that directs people to your wedding website that will provide the guests with all of the information that they need to attend your wedding. I have received several compliments on both the site and the STD. Emailing the STD is universally used to save money and IMO economically correct lol. Good luck

I personally dont think its tacky it all. We did an email STD with a lot of info on the resort, booking and a link to our website.

Whew! What a load off.

Ok thanks ladies for the suggestions.

 

I think we'll make a pretty email (Morgan thanks for those sites) and include a link to our website (we're making it for free on Weebly.com) and send a letter to those folks we know aren't web-savvy.

 

Oh and yes, we're going to make and send invitations closer to the date. (maybe January for our June wedding...that's enough time right?)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
