I would put a card in there about hotel accommodations.

I dont have pictures of them right now, but we just stuck our magnets (using glue dots you can find at Office Depot) to colored card stock. You can buy a little paper cutter and cut out a cute design across the top for people to see when they open the card, or you can get a stamp and make a nice border or something if it still looks too plain for you.

If you want to print travel accomodations, I’d print them on the back of the card and glue the magnets to the opposite side. You can draw or stamp a little arrow underneath the magnet so they know to look 🙂

Depending on how crafty you are, you can also probably find a small calendar online (you could probably just cut & paste) and print that to go above where you’re placing the magnet. Actually, a lot of things could be printed above–even if it’s just your names really big or “SAVE THE DATE” really big.

But even if you just stuck the magnet to a piece of cardstock in the center, it’d still be very nice to receive.

DON’T toss out your new STDs! You’re getting wedding tunnel vision!

The Save-The-Date Cards actually don’t have to match your colors/style–especially since they’re sent out so early these days that a lot of brides don’t even know what those are yet and/or change them along the way. I highly doubt anyone who receives them will get your invitation, look back at their refrigerator, and go, “But the styles don’t match!”

But if you want to make your envelopes more vintage, it’s quite easy. You can purchase vintage labels (http://www.paper-source.com has some; http://www.thepaperwink.com has a bunch of cute ones) or you can also try a rubber stamp to help gussy it up (just stamp the image to the right of the address), like this one from http://www.stampfrancisco.com (which has a lot of old-tymey stamps); http://www.stampfrancisco.com/Product.asp?Sku=106-8846&Desc=Spencerian+Bird

You can also buy vintage stamps, but I like these which are sort of vintage-y and they’re current and available through http://www.usps.com:

https://shop.usps.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10001&storeId=10052&productId=10001827&langId=-1&parent_category_rn=10000003&top_category=10000003&categoryId=10000068&top=&currentPage=0&sort=&viewAll=Y&rn=CategoriesDisplay&WT.ac=10001827

And since your colors include purple there’s also a current “Love” stamp which has purple flowers. Lots of options.

Did I just dork out on you? Sigh.
