That's what I was told when we went to the Dandelion Patch to look at save-the-date cards. We wound up going on Monday instead of Saturday. We didn't make an appointment as they advise, we just walked in and looked through a few books. They had about five or six bookshelves full of binders with invitation samples. I didn't see any invitations that featured a same-sex wedding...maybe that was in a different book. But I digress. I can see how people can get overwhelmed with the simple task of picking out invitations.
We saw a few we liked. I would prefer our save-the-dates be something that people won't be inclined to just toss after they read it, something memorable. My thought was a bookmark, but my gf came up with an even better idea, magnets! So as things go we are now on the hunt for save-the-date magnets!
While at the Dandelion Patch one of the consultants asked our wedding date, I replied 2012. Another bride says to me "you're a prepared bride!" I would like to hope that is the case. We have plenty of time but yet time flies so I am going to get busy creating my time line for the wedding, which I will let me know what I should be doing and when.
But back the magnets. Etsy, a favorite online shopping portal of mine has some great indie stuff. I found some cool magnets at a much lower cost than the save-the-dates we were looking at. Here are a few pictures:
There are so many to choose from. What's your favorite?
