My save the dates and my invitations...

Recommended Posts

After a long period, I FINALLY got my save the dates out last week.  I initially planned on DIY, but i'm really just not that creative with arts and crafts and lacked the time to be able to do it the way I would have wanted it done as a slight perfectionist.  So I caved in and ordered save the date magnets from Magnet Street, and ordered my invites from Allurement by Rebecca (AWESOME!!!!)  I am so in love with my invites!!

 

I did an letter insert because I have a lot of older family that do NOT use the internet so to avoid a lot of questions ...this was the route we chose.  The insert is a word document that i placed on a design from Vistaprint, and it included our greeting, our TA info, and on the back of the insert, I included the hotel blocks, cost, and gift registry.  We bowed to family pressure regarding having a gift registry.  I attempted to make the inner envelope that was included with the magnet less plain so I ordered customized monogram stickers from Zazzle.com.  I also got gel glitter pens, rubber stamps and red and purple ink pads from Michaels. I traced around the sticker with the purple glitter pen and filled in the letter "O" in the word Love with the red glitter pen. Took a while but we're getting positive responses so that's great!  I whited out our last name and wedding site but you can pm me if you want to see our website. Hope you like!

I forgot to mention that I also ordered stamps from Zazzle.com since I didn't like what the post office offered due to the cost of my save the dates.  I ended up ordering custom stamps for the save the dates and invites, and using the wedding cake stamp for our reply envelopes.

Thank you! I wish i had picked a colored legal size envelope for the save the dates, but too late to worry about it now. The small white envelopes came with the magnets so that was the only option unfortunately.

I did regular shipping because it wasn't a rush for me at the time. I was silk waiting on other things. Like right now I'm waiting on my stamps for the invites

    • 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.
