- Wedding: November 2011
**Disclaimer** I am the first person in my family to get married, none of my friends are married, and I have only attended one wedding, as the guest of a friend, so I haven’t a clue what proper proceedures are. Your help would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
So I designed our save the dates, and had them printed as the large photo magnets on Vistaprint. I then also ordered white envelopes for them, that are blank on the front, but have our names and address typed on the back flap. Now, I did not have the envelopes come with the “privacy liner”, because the ones they offered had “Vistaprint” written all over the inside, and I thought that would look tacky.
1a. So am I supposed to some how “wrap” the magnets, before putting them in the envelopes? Or place them inside of a “blank card” of some sort? I don’t know if it will be odd to just send a large magnet in an envelope. (They are the a-2 envelopes that are the proper size for the large photo magnets).
1b. And is it bad etiquette to hand write the addresses on these envelopes?
2. For both the save the dates, and the invitations, we are trying to understand what is the proper etiquette when it comes to multiple couples/guests living at one residence. Example: FI’s Grandfather lives with FI’s aunt and husband, as well as 2 of their mid-20s children (FI’s cousins), both of which have a significant other they would bring with them to the wedding. So when mailing invites and/or save the dates, do we send 4 to one household, (grandfather, aunt & uncle, and one for each cousin)??
2b. Using the same example above, would it be odd/poor etiquette to send just one save the date to that household, but then send seperate invitations? (4?)
2c. Do we have any other option I may not have heard of or can think of, to spare us having to send 4 invites to one home, or is that just how it needs to be done?
Thanks in advance for helping us out! 🙂
