Ok so even picking out a save the date seemed like rocket science. My fiance and I finally decided on a picture and save the date that we both liked. His mother is calling us everyday telling us we need to get them out (our wedding is in September of next year but it’s a destination wedding) I just realized that we didn’t put on there where the wedding will be or anything about making reservations at the lodge or ANYTHING. I’m not really into making a website, I’m currently working on my business website and the last thing I want to do is have another website to work on. Reordering our save the dates just so that we can put the location on them seems silly but I don’t know what else to do. My bff says just add it with sharpie- but I think that’s super tacky. AHHHHH please help

Both weddingwire and theknot have SUPER easy wedding website templates.
Just put very basic info on there (like where to book etc) and you can hide all the other pages (i.e. how we met, about the bride, about the groom, etc).
That way you don’t have to clutter up the STD with tons of info about travel, hotels, etc.

can we just type up the wedding website and put it on the outside of the envelope since we already have our save the dates? or is that tacky?

@mhumphr4: Another option is to buy blank mailing labels and put the website address on it, or just put wedding in _________ and stick it on the back of the std. Then make that the first thing the person sees when pulling it out of the envelope. I did something similar. I forgot to put “and guest” on one of mine, so I just wrote a quick note saying that I forgot to say that a guest is okay, and put it in the envelope facing out so it was sure to be seen.
Hope this helps!

Did you say that it was a destination wedding on the STD? I feel like you can probably just get away with that and have people spread the word about where it will be. That way, if you change your mind about the destination between now and 6 months from now, people won’t be confused.
Does that make sense?

Put your date and website (make one on theknot, it’s so easy) on a sticker and stick them to the Save-The-Date Cards. Yes sharpie would be tacky!

@mhumphr4: Save the Dates don’t have any info on them yet. It’s just so people know when to ask off work. Then, before the wedding, you send actual invitations with all the juicy details. 🙂 And as far as websites? I used Weddingwire.com. Their’s is free and SUPER easy!
