    Please stop bumping your post. I usually don’t reply to a post if I’ve seen it’s been “bumped” by it’s poster.

    I think hand written notes are a nice way to let people know about your wedding plans. You don’t even need to use cards that say “Save the Date” since you will be writing a message letting them know the date of your wedding.

    @VeronicaH: No need to be rude. She just wants to get a response to a question that was posted 10 hours a go!

    To OP, I think it would be a nice STD to get (hehe). I don’t think it would look cheap at all, just thoughtful!

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with a handwritten STD. I think it’s a great way to make a STD more personal and really make someone feel welcome and excited about your wedding!

    I think if it’s done nicely it could be really neat. I immediately thought of this bride who did a really cute high school themed shower, but what I LOVED about it was the hand written notes folded up ornately inside the cards, I thought it was so sweet and showed so much time and thought put into every detail.

    i hate receiving typed information, thank you’s, etc. it makes me feel like i just got stuck on a mail merge list and no one actually knows me.

    I wouldn’t mind at all. I think I might even feel a little extra special that the bride personally wrote me, Gemstone, a note! She must really want me at her wedding. 🙂

    @Mrs.MedinaJr: When the original poster types “bump” so that their thread can be put back in the recent posts. (we can see them again there) Especially if no one is responding.

    I think it would be really nice to get a handwritten note!  It would definitely make me feel like the couple took a little extra time to send a nice note.  Plus, in my opinion, the STD doesn’t need to be super formal.  Just a nice way of giving people a heads up that they are invited!

    I voted that it would be really nice. But I also think it would depend on the amount of time that was spent on them. They could look cheap if they’re just chicken scratched with a date.


    Bump 🙂 lol
