I won an Ebay auction for blank Save the Date cards that I thought were tres cool. I would write a handwritten note to each person to let them know about my date and make it personal (which never seems to happen anymore in today’s email world). But, I think since the save-the-date tchotchkies (sp) like magnets and photo post cards are so popular, will my handwritten note look “cheap” intead of “personal”? Vote for what YOU would think if you got a handwritten STD card. Thanks!

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. 🙂

Yeah, sorry about the bumps – exactly I didn’t get why nobody saw it the first times. 😉

@evalague: what does Bump Mean?

@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
