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. ï»¿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?
