Save the Dates

We're falling a bit behind in terms of wedding planning and it's looking like sending out Save-the-Dates isn't really going to work. I'm not really upset about it, they were always kind of an optional thing to me anyway, but my fiance thinks it might matter. I'm also in favor of not wasting money on something I don't care much about AND not having to rush to do something that doesn't matter to me at the expense of time to work on things that do matter.

I think the best option is to actually pick up a phone and talk to people. All our friends are aware of the date anyway, but we could check in with those we don't talk to as often to remind them. Our parents can help with similarly reminding family we're not in touch with as often. I think as long as our wedding website is done so there's a place to point people to for more information, the phone call is just as good as a card in the mail.

Thoughts?

Yeah, don't add that extra stress and expense if you didn't already shell out to get them. Save-the-dates are a fairly recent "thing" so it's not like the grandparents will miss them :-)

As long as people who might need to book hotel reservations/travel arrangements are aware of the date well in advance, that's all that matters.

We didn't do save the dates. phonevite.com

Thats where you need to go. Took about 20 minutes to upload our address book and record our message. Then BAM all the calls made at once within 15 minutes.

No concerns that a recorded message might get some people to hang up right away thinking it was telemarketers? I know some people that hang up the moment they hear the pause and click that tends to indicate a recorded message. Sounds like an interesting idea, and if it worked for you that's great!

we didn't do save the dates. We let everybody know via word of mouth and then sent the invites out early.
