It may have been nearly a month since our last blog post, but Jessica and I have not been neglecting the wedding planning in the slightest!
One of the many projects we have been working on is our Save-the-Date mailing. After going through several drafts of what it would say, how it would look, and what it would actually be, we settled on custom-designed magnets from PaperSnaps. Using two of our favorite pictures from our Boston Public Garden engagement session (shown here) we placed our order, which arrived last week. We put them together assembly-line style.
An interesting feature of our save-the-date magnet is a QR code that we placed at the bottom. Undoubtedly, this might confuse some recipients, so we included instructions to look up “QR code” on Google if people don’t know what to do with it. We’re not giving away any surprises here, but if you know what to do with a QR code, definitely do it. If you have stumbled upon this website by typing the link at the bottom of the save-the-date magnet, you’re close, but not there yet.Â If I were you, I’d figure out what a QR code is and how to use it.
A fun surprise was an email we received from PaperSnaps’ marketing manager telling us that she has never seen a save-the-date with a QR code before. She wrote about it in her blog.
