Drop Us a Line

I've always loved getting snail mail. There's just something fun about getting mail that isn't a bill or junk mail, which is all we seem to get these days.

As wedding planning has progressed, our mail box has seemed to be full of fun mail- wedding purchases, wedding gifts, shower gifts, congratulations cards, response cards.... I love coming home to check the mail every day. But realistically I know this will all stop post wedding. But, I think I've found a way to keep the fun mail coming.


I've been obsessed with the idea of post cards instead of a guestbook for some time now. I've seen quite a few brides do this everywhere from Style Me Pretty to other blogger bees in the Hive.


When I first saw this idea I thought it was fun, but it wasn't until I saw images from my favorite wedding ever that I knew we had to do it at our wedding. The Bride asked her mother to send the postcards throughout her and her husband's first year of marriage. That is what sold me. I have a whole other year of looking forward to snail mail! I didn't think I'd get this excited about a guestbook, but I really hope everyone fills out a card.

Are you excited for your guestbook? What makes you excited about it?
