Virtual *free* Save the Dates………… I'm in love

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

So I stumbled upon some free virtual save the dates.  There are many designs to choose from, you can edit and design the way you like and you can send them via e-mail to as many of your guests as you want- and the best part is…….. they’re free!  Sent some out, but found out you need to invite ten more people? No problem- your design is saved and you can send out more at any time.

Check out http://www.cocodot.com – your source for online invitations, announcements, and greeting cards.

The code you’re going to want to get your free save the date is as follows “COCOWEDDING”(expires March 1, 2011).

Are most of your guests tech savy? Want to cut down on paper waste and save on postage? They have great plans that allow you to create all of your wedding stationary and work off of your already uploaded e-mail list.  If you use the “COCOWEDDING” code you can get a one year deluxe on-line invitation package+cards+stationary at half price for only $49.

Worried about having to type out all of your pals e-mail addresses? It imports from yahoo, AOL & Outlook.  Pretty nifty.

So, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.  Back to my wedding website.  I’ll write more on that later.  Also, my hall excursion and booking.  Stay tuned.

December, 2009

The Giants are officially out of the playoffs.  They’ve lost to the dreaded Eagles.  But I am not worried.  They’ve never won a Super Bowl and hopefully never will.  Anyway after the game my girlfriend is talking about moving near me with a girlfriend.  I say it s a great idea.  Get out of your house, be independent.  Wait… I wish I still lived at home.   Anyway,  she starts talking about how much it will cost, and starts to talk about our future.  Holy Shit! The future, here it comes.  She starts saying that if she moves out she won’t be able to save money.  I’m like save money for what??  And then it hits me.

She starts talking about marriage, the ring, the future.  Guys don’t like to hear about the future.  Day to day man.  That’s how we roll.  Anyway, she asks me how people pay for a wedding?  I ponder the thought and say “the bride’s parents pay for the whole thing, don’t they?”  Nice try.  She gives me a look and right there I knew it.  I mean, I had to plant the seed right?  So I guess we are going to have to save.  Now, does that me she doesn’t move out??  I want to buy a house, or a condo, and maybe go back to school.  Wow I wish I was watching Sports Center.
