Save the Dates - wrong size

Help!

I have ordered Save the Dates, but accidentally ordered the wrong size. They are the size of business cards. I am now confused on what I should do. Should I just roll with it and send them in small envelopes? Or should I add a letter with them? Or should I scratch them and buy new ones?


I am so upset that I didn't see the size when I bought them. How embarrassing.


Thank you in advance for suggestions.

Rebekah H.

    I would first contact the company to explain the confusion. They might be willing to reprint them and only charge the difference. If not, then if it were me, I think it depends on what the cost was. If the Save The Dates were cheap, I'd probably reprint them. Otherwise, if they were more expensive or if I didn't have the budget to reprint, I would just send the smaller ones.

    Personally, I'd reorder them. Also, the Post Office has minimum size requirements for envelopes, so if you decide to send them, be sure you buy envelopes (which will be considerably larger than the business-sized cards) that will be acceptable.

    They sell business card sized magnets. Turn them into magnets! Everyone will see them on their fridges as a regular reminder, and they won't go to waste Smiley smile

    I feel your pain-I accidentally did the exact same thing with our details cards! I couldn’t believe it when I got them in! Ultimately, I ended up re-ordering them in the correct size.

    I didn’t even know they made save the dates that small lol. Personally, I would reorder. Susan also had a great idea with making them into magnets!

    I think that’s actually a cute idea! I feel like people will be more apt to put them in their purse or wallet or on the fridge! Lol

    Just order business card magnets. That's standard size from other wedding sites that sell them. Just mail them in regular size envelopes. You don't need an attached letter or anything.
