Oh no! Without even looking at them??? That’s awful. I know that when I get one, I stick it on my fridge and keep it there either until I get the invite, or until after the wedding. But I think you have to realize that a lot of people aren’t very sentimental, and they’ll just read whatever’s important on your paper goods and disgard the rest. It’ll happen with your invites too, no matter how much money and time you spent on them.

 I wouldn’t take it too personally. It’s the people who matter, not the mail. on the other hand, if they’re now complaining that they had no warning of your wedding date, you’d be very much allowed to be pissed IMO!

It hopefully hasnt happened to me but mine were in an envelope.  Im curious as to why they would throw them (or anything) away without even looking at it?  Did they think it was junk mail?  That stinks, Im sorry 🙁

my fiance and i were worried about the same thing, so we actually did save the date VIDEOS!! 🙂  it was soooo fun and our guests loved it.  i would totally recommend it to couples trying to do something completely different!  we worked with Norris Films (www.norrisfilms.com) who was just amazing.  our guests loved it!!!  they were doing a promotion too, so we got such a good deal!!

We did a save the date email from a mac.com account- it included a photo of the 2 of us..and our link to the website we are designing to provide a lot of information for our out of town guests. We had a big response, it was a hit!

It is funny that you mention this b/c our ‘save the date’ postcards looked like a movie or play postcard…’starring ms djmaddiebluedog and mr maddiebluedog.’  so many people told us that they initially didn’t get that it was a ‘save the date.’ lucky for us they all figured it out.  i can’t imagine your guests didn’t ‘get it’ when you had a picture of yourselves on the postcards!

Wow, I’m so sorry that happened!! I never thought people mistaking STDs for junk mail. Ours were mailed in envelopes because that fit the style of the cards we sent but it certainly never crossed my mind that people might toss them out without even READING them.
