Wedding Stationery for The New Millenium

We are the brides of the new millenium.

We hunt online for our dress, ebay for centerpieces, and share information daily with each other on any number of wedding planning communities online.

Couples today even create wedding websites --- where crucial event informationused to have to be sent via word-of-mouth, or by phone call or letter, we now are able to post everything dealing with the in one place.

But where on the invitation can we put the link? Most won't add a URL to their invitations (I won't) -- it just doesn't look right there. Most don't even have them on their save the date cards, because, with the popularity of small magnets being on the rise, there usually is no room for it.

Also, the website itself may not acutally be up and running at the time the save the dates are sent.

One way around this dilemma that I have thought of (and that I really thing should be added to all modern wedding stationery set) is a website announcement card.

This is a card that can be created to let people know you have a website where they can get the lates news on your wedding (especially unexpected date changes), hotel accomodations, travel directions, and more. You can even introduce your bridal party, and put your registry information here (which is a way around the sticky siutation of telling people where you are registered without having to put it somewhere inappropriate -- like your invitation or save the date card.)

Here are my new website announcement cards, I created two; one in postcard size, so you can send it by itself a little after sending out your save the dates, and a smaller one that can be inserted with the rest of your invitation set.

Post card Website Announcement Card:

Insert Website Announcement card:

By the way, that IS the acutal website address for our vow renewal website, but it is being created at the moment, so there is nothing there -- yet.

Would love feedback on this idea.

I love the idea of including website info on a cute card. With eight weddings to attend this summer, I'm a HUGE fan of websites to help me keep track of everything, but I hate having to search through The Knot, WeddingChannel, weddingwindow, etc. to find the site.

Great idea and I hope more brides adopt it!
