engagement thank yous

Recommended Posts

we just received an engagement gift from our registry - what do we use for thank yous? just regular store bought thank you cards, or should we quickly order personalized cards?

 

what did you do?

i never had any personalized cards - i don't think you have to do this at all! i had a random assortment of thank you cards i used!

i did buy some cute thank you cards with a palm tree on them. but since i needed more, and didn't want to spend a lot, i just bought some blank cards (i think at Michaels) and then printed a palm tree and "Thank You" on them - they turned out pretty cute actually! and so cheap!

I'm going with store bought ones, too, probably with something relating to my colors, or seashells, etc. When I get thank yous in the mail I toss them about 2 seconds after reading them, so I'd rather use that money somewhere else.

One trip to the papyrus near me (no Hallmark in the area) and I rquickly realized that custom printed cards would actually be cheaper. I loved the packaged kind, but they were over a dollar each. I agree with Laura that most people just looks at it and quickly toss it. I figured that much money was better spent on another part of the wedding. Check out Vista prints if you are considering custom, but I def don't think its necessary!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
