    In envelopes. Since there's no postage benefit anymore in sending as a postcard, and since we're trying to think of something fun to enclose with them, envelopes seemed to make sense.

    But now I'm stuck on what to enclose. Had been thinking of luggage tags, but even the least expensive are a bit pricey for save the dates...and was considering little packets of eco-friendly, biodegradable sunscreen (since many of the lagoons require that type so as not to kill the reefs), but we're worried they might pop in transit. Anyone have other ideas

          I love them, you did a great job. I do not think you should put in anything that will cost a lot of money with them though because a lot of those people will not come to your wedding. Not to be harsh, but we sent out 110 STD's and had 51 people at our wedding. So I think you should just save that untill you send out the formal invites.

            Um, that's the Triboro Bridge. Do you live in Astoria My house is on 26th Street, between 24th Avenue and Hoyt Avenue. I've lived in Astoria my whole life.

            Oh, and yes, I love the STD - very cute!!!!

              That is a very creative and cute STD! I would actually echo Julie's comments in that I wouldn't put too much more into the save the date. I think they are cute enough!

                That's so interesting...a number of date sites put the solstice at June 21, 2008 @ 00:00 or just a few minutes earlier. In other words, it's weirdly right around midnight. However, looking at sunrise/sunset times in Cancun (nearest city with prediction times), the 21st is still the longest day of the year. Therefore, I think we both picked the right date!

                Thanks for the feedback, everyone!
                Great! I'm glad the 21st is the true solstice then. My shutterfly calendar & wikiepedia said the 20th. But if some sources say the 21st, I'll stick with that. Either way, the whole time we are in mexico we will have long sunny days :)
