This is what I did for my save the dates.  Everyone thought it was really cute and different.  I had a lot of fun making it.

I think that if you don’t want to spend money on Save the Dates, then don’t. Or, if you want to do something, send out an e-save-the-date and for the older people, do nothing. I was trying to explain Save-The-Date Cards to my grandma and she just didn’t get it. “an invitation? So early?” “no grandma, it’s just to have you save the date” “well why would I need to do that? I know when it is!” etc, etc.

I definitely do not think save-the-dates are necessary.  There are so many people now that choose not to do them.  We decided to to post-card save the dates.  They were cheap AND we saved on postage since postage is 33 cents vs. whatever it is for normal postage now ( 45 cents each?) We had 150 save the dates and including postage spent less than $200. It turned out to be much cheaper than FI’s idea of doing magnets! LOL I think your idea is super cute toO!

We didn’t send out save the dates. We figured an invitation would work just as well. It has a date and time, and they needed to be there. They didn’t need two cards with the same information.

We’re just doing an e-StD using Paperless Post. If you just use the card, they have a lot of free options. We’re upgrading, however, to add an envelope, but that still won’t cost us too much as I’ve accumulated quite a few free tokens for upgrades. If you wanted, you could order corresponding paper ones for a low price for those not technologically inclined.

My only issue about the Facebook STD is what about people who aren’t invited?  They might assume they are.  Not a problem I guess if you are inviting all of them, but I know I have work people, and distant relatives on there who I wouldn’t invite.  I like the message idea better.  I also like the website or e-std idea.

You could also combine it with a regular mailing to the older folks (if you do them), such as in holiday cards this year?  Happy Holidays from us, and remember to save the date for October 4 next year!!
