W-2 Save the Date for Tax-Day Wedding
That was the FIRST question my mom asked when I mentioned sending “save the dates.” But with a holiday weekend wedding and a 75% out-of-town guest list, you can bet we were sending them—and early! We actually designed our save the dates and sent them out in August, just to be well ahead of the holiday season (and to check one thing off my list).
So after I explained them to my mother, we went ahead and got to work designing save the dates. I figured we’d go with flat, two sided cards in plain envelopes. And while I LOVE fancy stationery, we went basic with linen textured cards from Vistaprint. Add in one of their magical coupons and we spent about 15 bucks on 100 cards. We’ll splurge on wedding invites a little (maybe), but I didn’t want to break the bank on save the dates.
But what about the design? Well…it all started as a joke. But the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to make my ridiculous save the date a reality. So I brought it to Mr. Wishbone via a Skype in the middle of the day.
