Coasters are pretty easy to do by yourself. How many are we talking about here? You and another person could probably make them all easily in one night.

Why coasters?? They seem like they’d be thick and a pain to mail, and too thick to hang on the fridge, making it something that’s likely to get tossed. We did postcards, super cheap to mail, easy and fun to design, easy to hang on the fridge and reference to remember the date.

also with the postcards we had vistaprint make them and ship them so it was super easy. I’m biased though because I think they’re silly in general so I wanted as little fuss as possible.

Square envelopes cost more.  Heavier/thicker items cost more.  It will most definitely cost more than regular postage.  I also agree its an item that will likely be tossed or even misplaced.

I ordered custom coaster invitations for my fiancé’s 30th birthday (which was also at a brewery) from Product80 on Etsy. The seller was great to work with and I got so many compliments on them! People are still using them 2 years later. I think I paid $75 for 50 coasters with envelopes.

These could be adjusted: https://www.minted.com/product/bridal-shower-invitations/MIN-032-BSI/vintage-coaster?dcC=M&org=photo with Save the Date instead of “I Do Brew Honoring” and then just the date and city underneath. I think they would be perfect for a brewery wedding. 

We went with more traditional Save-The-Date Cards and invitations via Minted and the customer service and quality were excellent. I got a name wrong on our programs (a groomsman eloped and he and his wife chose a combined name) and they actually reprinted all 175 program for free, rush order and shipping. 

ETA: whoops, they’re not real coasters. But I still think they would fit your theme.

It sounds like a great idea, but might be easy to lose! Have you tried sending Save The Date invitations that have magnets attacted to them? That why they can stick them on the fridge and it won’t be misplaced!

I don’t see where you asked “should I do coaster save the dates” but for some reason that’s the only responses you’re getting……? 🌚😑🙃

Anyway, check out Zazzle, Invitations by Dawn & For Your Party!

I used the ones from Minted. I can confirm that they are regular weight and only require one stamp! People thought they were great! It’s very unique and sounds like it fits your theme nicely!
