Hi again,

Quick update–decided not to mail out save the dates. Instead, we’re going to send save the date emails to a larger group, but this time they will be more official in that they tie in to our wedding website (we’re using weddingwindow.com) and include more info, e.g., our room block. It saves money and time…

My husband is a computer geek (lol) so when we got married we did a lot of things online.  He designed a site for us, which looked great, and put up an initial page for the STD.  A couple of months later he updated it to have a dynamic guestbook on the front page and do all the RSVPs online.  It saved us a ton of money on envelopes and stamps.

Btw ladies, if you don’t like cookie cutter wedding sites like myself, you should check out http://www.mymuto.com and have someone custom design and make the site for you for cheap.

We didn’t do them, and I don’t regret it. We had a small guest list (less than a hundred) and people knew from word of mouth what our wedding date was. We sent out the invites a little early to compensate so people who needed to travel would have enough advance notice.

I think they’re cute as heck though – some of the ones I’ve seen on here have made me almost regret not having them.

We did STDs because our wedding is on a holiday weekend and more than half our guests are from Out of Town. We just sent them out last week and have been getting lots of compliments on the magnets. I guess not too many people have seen STD magnets before around here!

not exclusively, but primarily, if you’re in the twenties and thirties you may be competing with other couples you or your guests know and their wedding dates. You want to send save the dates so that you get in before anyone else they may know.. if that makes sense. You dont want to invite out of state or area couples 2 months out bc thats not ample notice either. Save the dates are piece of mind!
