When I last left you, I was debating between vintage postcard or engagement picture postcard save the dates (and secretly hoping for a good reason to do away with them all together). A few things happened that led us to go with the engagement picture postcard:
- Mr. S vetoed the only cost efficient vintage postcard I could find. (This was before a bee suggested buying a graphic print and using Vistaprint postcards. That probably would have been in budget, but c’est la vie.)
- After the reBar debacle, we had to change our wedding date. Thank goodness we hadn’t gone into production mode with save the dates yet because we would have had to re-print everything. However, the sudden change in plans left us less time to put something together DIY style.
- GiltCity offered a voucher to Wedding Paper Divas. We paid $50 for $100 worth of merchandise. The offer was made a while ago and at the time I wasn’t fully committed to using the voucher for our save the dates, but we bought it anyway confident that we could make use of it somehow.
- We got our engagement pictures back and they were so amazing that I felt compelled to share them with the rest of the world. And by rest of the world, I mean our wedding guests.
Once we decided that engagement picture postcards were the way to go, I headed to the WPD website to see what our options were. I was still hoping for something reminiscent of a vintage postcard that focused on the image, not the typeface. I immediately landed on the “Postal Perfection” design. Simple, postal, perfect. (Whoever names these designs at WPD is really good at their job.) I got the stamp of approval from Mr. S and it was go time.
