This is exactly what I was thinking of doing! Thanks Acireta, I know i'm not the only crazy one.

This is so true. Because we're going somewhere, most people are comfortable enough to just call and ask for info, or go check on the website.

I knew a couple who just emailed all their guests a STD and only did formals for a a few.
Just do what you want I say
The magnet is a great idea to! I actually just ordered some from Vistaprint today.

It had the website for the wedding website I created so guests could get some info on pricing and whatnot far in advance. Then I plan on sending the invite about 4 months prior.
