    I just sent out my Save the Dates for our April 2013 wedding this morning :) I got so many ideas from other brides on here, so I wanted to return the favor. I don't have colors picked out yet, but I really liked the picture I used for the magnet, so I expanded the other items off that. I went with the beach/tropical theme for now.

     

    The paper and envelopes came from paperandmore.com. I used the champagne pearlescent metallic color since it reminded me of sand. The magnets and post cards were from Vistaprint, with the magnet photo coming from canstockphoto.com. The flower on the envelope was a rubber stamp purchased on Etsy. We decided to use a pre-RSVP post card to get an idea of the number of people planning to join us, and will send a formal RSVP with the invitations.

          Thanks ladies :)  I am really hoping people send back the pre-RSVP cards. My FI has a pretty large family and I think they could go either way with attending or not, so this will greatly help with planning. I gave people until mid-April to respond, so if we haven't gotten many back I'll have my FI start sending emails and making phone calls!

            We gave our guests the option of early RSVP via our website when we sent out our STDs and only got two couples who did, which were our parents :) So it didn't really do much. But I hope you get more back than we did. It definitely helps to know early.
