Dont feel bad…I also made about 50 extra as well…I made them so early in the game, not knowing our guest list numbers or anything, and I thought it was better to make too many than too little…

Imagine how bad it would be if you’d ordered TOO LITTLE  🙂

Well, at least you know you have a few for scrapbooking wedding memorabilia 😉

Hah, I’m a bigger idiot…I ordered 100 (they were free, dangit! All I paid was S/H) and used maybe 30.

I did "recycle" and pasted cardstock over the back (which had all the specifics; the front was a big ol’ photo of us and our name logo I created) and used them as our shuttle assignment cards for our OOT guests (but yeah, that only used up another dozen…).

I also have about 40 extra wedding invitations and allllllll the inserts. They make perfect photo mattes for a wedding scrapbook or even your wedding Thank You cards.

Oh yeah, that’s a good idea, Snowpea!  You can use them for shower thank you’s or for gifts that come before the wedding — just glue cardstock on the back and write your own message.  I should’ve done that…

I plan on glueing our wedding photo on it to cover up the text but to show the design along the edges. Then write the thank you on the blank side of it. Since I already have the envelopes, that’s easy too.

Don’t feel bad I sat around and made our STD’s for what seemed like forever and turns out I made about 30 too many as well.  Oh well I will figure out something to do with them.  I swear I really can count so I dont know how I ended up with so many extras

I ordered too many, too. I forgot that the number of GUESTS was not necessarily the number of STD’s that would go out (I was counting dates and families in my headcount). So I thought I needed 130, and I could only order in multiples of 100, so I ordered 200. Turns out I only needed to send out about 90. Darn it… luckily they were postcards and cheap, but I can’t use them for anything else, they all have the date on the front!
