Moo Cow. I Mean, Card. Yeah. Moo Card.

Like many bees before me, I am a Moo Card bride. You know, those cute little mini cards that you can customize? Yeah, they’re pretty neat.

Surprisingly, I actually did not find out about Moo cards through Weddingbee. Shocking, I know. Our photographers included a box of Moo cards with our e-session DVD—they had a selection of our e-pictures on one side of the card, and our future wedding gallery information on the other. They suggested that we set them out somewhere on our wedding day, so that our guests knew how to access the gallery after the event. Excellent! I fell in love with Moo’s packaging, and the teensy little cards. Right then and there, I knew I wanted to somehow work additional Moo cards into our stationery suite. I had a pretty firm idea on how I would use them, and it was fun to trawl through WB and see how various other bees have used them in the past. I was officially hooked on Moo.

So, I bit the bullet and designed some Moo cards! This means we will not only have the Moo cards to set out on the wedding day itself (from our photogs), but I was also able to incorporate them into our invitations.

Yes, it is exciting. I’m telling you – their packaging kicks butt.

You’re MY new best friend too, Moo card!!!

I am really in love with the “Mine” and “Theirs” folder. Mainly because they’re just teensy little folders in a teensy little box.

Annnnd… ta-da!! Our Moo cards in action!

Yep, we incorporated our silhouettes into the Moo cards. Love.

Otherwise, we just had “Mr. & Mrs.” and the date on the back of the card, along with our website, so that guests can find further information about the day. Pretty simple and straightforward!

Here they are all lined up…

Now, just one thing to note. I ended up with WAY too many Moo cards. We were sending out just under 100 invites, and I wanted to be safe and order a few extra cards, just in case. I don’t know, I was worried about messing up or something. I’m paranoid like that. Anyway, the cards come in packs of 100. So, I ordered 200.

Yeah, I basically used 2 from that second pack, and now have about 98 extra Moo cards sitting around. Oops? I don’t really care—I’ll use them the day of the wedding, but having to order somewhat in bulk is something to keep in mind. To be honest, I did mess up punching holes in a few of them (it was the punch’s fault! I promise!), so it was nice having the security of the extra cards.

So, that’s that! I love how they turned out, and I can’t wait to show you how I used them on our invites.

Are/ were you a Moo card bride? Were you as enamored with the packaging as I am?

    These are fabulous! I see you have the same text appearing on all the cards, even though there are different photos on the front. Do you know if it’s possible to have different text in one order as well? I’m thinking of putting the cards out during cocktail hour with little “tidbits” of information about my fiance and me or about the wedding itself, and then a different photo on the front of each one as well. I sent Moo an information request, so if no one knows, I’ll post the answer when I get it : ) Thanks!

    @JDBride: My understanding is that you can have different photos on all 100 cards. However, you can only have one thing on the back of all of them. While your idea is a good one, I don’t know if it’ll work.

    I love Moo cards and used them in our invites like Miss Gazelle and other bees before her. It was a great way to use our e-pics since we didn’t get them done in time for our save the dates. I also have a lot left but want to use more!!!! I might use them with our thank you notes as a way for people to view our pictures or upload their own.

    I got moo cards for the same purpose and I learned about them years ago thru flickr. BUT I can’t wait to see how you’ve actually hole punched them, etc. because I am trying to figure out how I am going to finalize mine.

    Love Moo cards and can’t wait to order mine! I was just thinking about ordering 200, because I’m a little paranoid about messing up too :)

    I honestly had a photoshoot of my moo cards when they arrived. I was completely obsessed with the little box and the little folders and the little cards!

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one!

    I totally buy things just for the packaging. We had no need for moo cards so I’m a bit jealous. Did you ever think of framing some of the extras?

    Love your cards and the fact that you were able to get so many pictures. I’m a Moo card bride and I absolutely love them.

    We only had 2 pictures of us but everyone thought that they were so cute with the invitations. We used a heart shaped hole puncher right above out heads which looked like cartoon bubbles made of hearts above our head…

    I’m a moo carder too! Your cards turned out great! I wish I could find reasons to need more mini moos post wedding.

    Easy! Make a collage out of them and frame it! You could also make a jar frame out of them with a baby food jar. :)

    These are adorbs! That’s a ton of extras, but they’ll be fun to hang on to, and you could even put them all in a frame to have them all together!

    We did moo cards too! And I ordered way too many as well. We had about 94 invites and I ordered 200 moo cards… what to do with the other 106!?! So adorable!
