This is a really strange feeling. I’m pretty excited/proud of what we have planned for our wedding overall.
Awhile ago we ordered some mega-sale save the dates that are pretty plain but get their point across (don’t plan stuff on this date!)
Now that we’re getting addresses together to send them out I feel like they look too cheap and am sad we didn’t do something more with our theme (literary/artsy) or at least the trendy magnet even though we never did engagement photos.
Do people care what the save the dates look like? I’m starting to get really anxious about this.

Awe I’m sorry honey! I’m sure your save the dates are amazing! We sent ours out and honestly I kind of regretted it. No one thought they were necessary, and I busted my butt on them. I just shrugged it off and moved on, but if I got the chance again I wouldn’t do them.

@PacificMrs: Thanks so much!! That helped TREMENDOUSLY. We will just keep what we have and I will stop longingly scouring Etsy. 🙂

I didn’t do them and don’t regret it. I really don’t see much of a point unless its an Out of Town wedding or as a good reason to show off engagement pics.
I’m sure yours are good. Add a ribbon and make it a bookmark. 😉

@bluebelle23: An awesome idea… and I think I will definitely do that!! The only reason we are doing them is we have a bunch of out of state guests and guests from England.
You ladies are an awesome source of support and creativity. Thanks so much. 🙂

I’m sorry you’re feeling down about them. Honestly, I got ours all made up with our picture, blah, blah, blah and I regret sending them out. I wanted to make sure people had time to plan and book the hotel room but as far as I know, only one person has booked their room (they have to be booked by 8/27 to get the discount). Most of my Out of Town guests knew about the date from word of mouth. Plus, now there are a few people who I honestly woudn’t invite to the wedding anymore (for various, non-drama reasons) but I have to because I already sent them a STD
