I think that sounds like a really great idea.  Haven’t seen any examples but I’ll keep my eyes open.

Have you tried just coming up with some yourself?

Never seen this but I love your sn. Can I assume you are having a rainbow wedding or is it not related?

I did this for my save the dates last year and it seemed to go over well, I just sent a pretty Holiday card with my STD magnet included in an envelope with a little note.

Last Christmas we did normal holiday cards and then included the STD magnet in the envelope.  It was way early but we wanted to make sure we got to claim the date before anyone else in the family did.  No one complained about them being sent early or that they were in with the holiday card.  It definitely worked good for us, gotta love saving postage Smile

 3.Santa wants you to know……..

 That XXX and XXX are getting married!

Here’s a couple of samples that show how to combine STD’s and Christmas greetings:

Thanks, I thought it was cute too! It could easily be altered for someone who didn’t get engaged over Christmas, e.g

Brian and Julie have set a date!

Please save the date etc etc etc

I’m using this idea too!  Do you mind me asking where you found the first image, I love that idea!

I would just make sure it stands out enough that people realize it is a STD instead of just another holiday greeting. I know I don’t always read the whole thing if it’s one of many holiday cards i’ve gotten, so it could get glossed over or set aside fairly easy if there isn’t somehting obviously “wedding” about it!

Try WeddingPaperDivas.com – that’s where it seems many of these came from. I am using the same idea (Holiday Cards as save the dates) and this site is super cute and has a lot of the same images!!
