@mexlover:  Well, the least expensive would probably have to be Vista Print.

Hi @mexlover: I see you are relatively NEW to WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “The Hive”

I am known to be a bit of an “Etiquette Snob”… lol, here on WBee

(A title I use in jest, cause the truth is I not really a snob about it at all… I just know a lot about the topic because of my upbringing, career, age etc)

Anyhow, the one thing you’ll want to take into consideration is how Save-The-Date Cards are perceived by people.

There is the automatic assumption that if you get one of these items, which have essentially replaced the previously known Engagement Annoucement, because you say “Save The Date” people expect a follow up Formal Invite (to not do so, is rather RUDE)…

Altho from a Traditional Etiquette POV… No one is truly invited to anything until they have a Paper Invite in hand.

Which is why it is imperative that if you plan to use / send out Save-The-Date Cards that you’ve done all your homework first

(Many couples don’t and then run into HUGE Headaches with them afterwards)

So ONLY send them to people you know who will get an Invite… this is best determined by having worked thru the following 4 things ahead of time:

  • Date
  • Budget
  • Venue
  • Guest List

Without all 4 worked out, you run hte risk of later finding out that something has to give, and more often than not it is the “Guest List”

Hope this helps,

We did Vista Print.  They look great and they were really cheap.  You can almost always find a Vista Print coupon code!

@This Time Round:  +1 for this

I constantly see posts “if i sent them a Save The Date do i need to send and invite even if i cant afford to have them there anymore” etc etc etc

Make sure your guest list is rock solid.
