Save the Date… and your money!

Save the Dates–they’re not required, but would be a courteous gesture to your guests, especially for couples who hope to have out-of-towners attend, or are planning a destination wedding.

So maybe you’re thinking that you’re already shelling out the cash for fancy invitations, or will be spending a lot of time on DIY invites, do you even have the extra money or time to have Save the Dates?

Before you pass on this optional step of the wedding process, visit Personally, I wasn’t planning on having Save the Dates, but after viewing this site and seeing all the discounts, I almost couldn’t help it.

Vistaprint logoUsing Vistaprint to order your Save the Dates will save you both money and time. Just register your email address to receive their promotions, and soon you will receive discounts and special offers – like 100 free postcards! You can order more at discounted rates, and order other free items in the meantime–like a free car magnet?

It’s also a pretty quick process from choosing what you want (postcard/magnets/letterhead, whatever), selecting the design and entering your info to actually receiving your order.

I made my Save the Date order of 200 small magnets, 250 postcards, plus an additional 100 free postcards within an hour or so. I received my order only after 1 week, even though I chose the standard shipping. Best of all, this set me back just $55.47 with discounts from one of the emails I received from them!

You can make your Save the Dates as generic or fancy as you’d like – add pictures, your own designs or make free caricatures of you and your partner to add on.

Also, if you change your mind after you’ve already ordered, you can cancel–within a reasonable amount of time–and receive a credit to your Vistaprint account for a future order.
