My fiancee and I would LOVE to send Save The Date magnets. We’ve had our hopes up for our photographer to be much quicker on our engagement pictures. However, long story short, we waited too long and now here we are middle of January with NO pictures still….we’re set on sending save the dates. We have two options. First, we could send them separately as typically/traditionally done, but we’re sitting at 5.5 months as I write this…not to mention the processing time of the save the date company along with the time snail mail takes…which would put us to option #2…I could send them WITH the invitation….
Here’s my thinking…our invitation has a place for a picture of us on the inside of the envelope (I’m going with the layered pocket look). With this in mind, we could send Save The Dates with the invitations….Cheesy? Informal? A big no? I need opinions from other bride-to-bes….our biggest wish was Save the Dates…HELP!

The point of save the dates is for your guests to have an idea of when your wedding will take place and give them ample time to make plans BEFORE you send out invites.
Honesly I would get the STD’s out ASAP.
I wouldn’t send them at the same time as the invites.

I was affraid of that….but I’m at the point that we just won’t send them, I can’t tell when the photographer will have our pictures and/or how long Save the Dates will take to come in. Thank you for your honest opinion because I was thinking that to begin with.

I just sent out our save the dates and it only took a week to get them from http://www.weddingpaperdivas.com They came out so cute and deff worth the money (for 75 std magents and envelopes included we paid $160) Get on it ASAP, even if it doesn’t have a photo of you both. That website has amazingly cute ideas without a picture per say. I wouldn’t send them with the invites, that’s a total waste of money a that point.
