I wasn't planning on doing save the dates until we planned our wedding on a weekend that most people go out of town for (Labor Day).... so against all my wishes I set out to look for some cheap save the date options. I wasn't happy with Evites as I think that site is a little bit too 1990's clip art.....and then I stumbled upon pingg.com.
OK - AMAZING. I really want to tell every couple-to-be, ever, to use this website. The invites are actually good looking, uploading contacts was super easy, they show you all sorts of information as people receive them--and it's FREEEEE.
They have e-cards and e-invites (the invites manage a guest list and RSVPs for you, while e-cards are just sent out). ALSO, with a click of a mouse you can ask pingg to just send the cards out for you snail mail. Give them the address, and they stuff it in an envelope, stamp it, and send it for you (this in not free however.) I just sent mine out yesterday and everyone seems to like them. Can you believe this is free?? I think I might do my invites through here too.
Ok - rave completed!
Christina is a recent college grad who is planning a wedding while trying to open her first business (a local-foods cafe!). When she's not working she's singing along to Neko Case, going for joy rides on her scooter, and finding the best salted dark chocolates the city has to offer.
Michael is a national sales manager in the lawn & garden industry, but he'd rather be playing D&D with his friends. When he's doing neither, he likes to make Christina's day a little brighter.
It was flirt-at-first-site four years ago when Christina decided to move to San Francisco. She interviewed with Michael's household to be their new roommate. She didn't get the room then, but we're fine with it! Four years later Michael proposed to Christina while on a walk through a vineyard in .
