    We did a simple website on mywedding.com and sent out electronic save-the-date announcements as soon as we decided on our wedding date and destination. We want to get the announcement out as fast as possible so our guests can block their vacation dates. This was so much easier and didn't cost us anything.

    I do want to make some really cool invites though, either boarding passes or passport... just need some good templates! :)

      So looks like if I want to send out anything now it will have to be electronic!!! Canada post strike :( might be difficult to order anything online as well!

        It sure does!! And if it goes long like the Toronto garbage strike did, we could be looking at a few months without mail! I'm sure the government will step in at some point but still inconvenient if you're trying to plan a wedding!

            I also used pingg.com to send out my save the dates.  Very convenient and free.  Also wanted to get the info out ASAP so ppl could start booking their arrangements and/or saving.  I will send something tangible in a month or so.

              I wasn't going to do a save the date to cut costs, but a free eSTD sounds right up my alley. I like the idea of a personalized powerpoint presentation too. You ladies are brilliant, my wallet thanks you.

              We were totally planning to send out STD's that were postcards. Then we found out we have a very short window to get people to put down their deposits and lock in the room rate (due to a promotion available from our resort). We had to switch to electronic STDs and phone calls. We emailed the STD, posted it to both our wedding website and our Facebook group, and then called folks to make sure they saw it, see if they had questions, etc. 

               

              I am very disappointed that we didn't get to send these out paper - as I totally adore paper goods.  Our logo would have been on the front, with the rest of the info on the back more like a postcard.

               

              Trying to switch expectations and focus on a "thank you for booking" mailing, then the invite & pre-travel brochure. 

               

              Roll with the punches, right..?
