A Sweet Save-The-Date

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

When does being engaged start to feel like reality and not just a label? Sending out your save-the-dates, invitations, and announcements is often that pivotal moment when you go from being the engaged couple to the couple that is actually getting hitched! It’s big news, and those few words you send out to family, friends, and other intended guests can really set the tone for your wedding.
This could easily be one of those times when you feel you need to dig deep in your pockets, after all, it’s the first order of business your guests will see regarding that special day. Don’t fret! There are countless options out there to save you money without skimming style from your wedding announcements, and I am going to share with you my favorite one of all (I also think it’s the coolest, in my humble opinion).
Enter Moo Cards. This artsy, modern, and environmentally conscious company started in the UK and now has its own U.S. site as well. “But those look like business cards,” you muse. Ah, but look closer. Yes, business cards they are indeed…but have you ever seen such lovely, creative, quality business cards as those? Perhaps so, and IF SO, you may have thought it be a waste to limit such a product to living in the lining of wallets everywhere. I love Moo Cards for save-the-dates, invites, announcements, thank yous, and even name cards or wedding favor gift tags. The site offers several options in creating cards (business card wallet size, skinny-mini cute cards, postcards, etc.) and you can either load your own photos (think engagement sessions or early photos of you as a couple) on to the front, while jotting all the important information on the back (date, time, place, etc.). They also offer many of their own designs in the “Ready Made” packs (see these orthese ). Moo Cards allow you to combine multiple pictures or designs per order, in case you can’t pick just one pic of you and yours. Added bonus: they use environmentally friendly products and recycled papers. Friends and family will love to see the unique way you’ve included them in your upcoming wedding, and the best part….they’re cheap! I’m a big fan of the “MiniCards”, and they start at 19 cents a card, going down from that. Check them out, get creative, and give your budget a break!
