The Wedding Diaries: Wedding Invitations

Monday, February 16, 2015

MagnetStreet often holds giveaways for brides to win their wedding stationary, save the dates, programs, and even thank you cards.  I found this company as I was browsing for save the date designs and "liked" their facebook page.  The first promotion I saw from them was to win 150 wedding invitations.  Wow, really?  Let's give it a try.  I Never expected to win!  I had low expectation since they have over 30k fans on facebook and it was the first time I entered after finding them.  I also apply to every wedding giveaway I find, so this was the first time I won something for my wedding!  I was ecstatic!  This helped me save at least $300 on the wedding (I only need to send out about 100).

I browsed through all their invitations and at first none of the designs really caught my eye.  We decided on "Candelit Mason Jars" to go with our theme.  The woodsy background goes with our outdoor ceremony between the trees.  We even ordered a few free samples and had the candelit mason jar one customized.  When it came time to actually order our invitations, I was having second thoughts.  I just felt like there wasn't something special about it.  As I was browsing the selection again, I started to like "Vintage Bunting" a lot.  I hadn't thought much about it before because I thought it was too rustic for my wedding.  But after looking at it some more, I really like how elegant it also looks with the font, filigree, and floral designs.  My fiance also changed his mind and liked it as well.  After making 1 free customization of it, we realized this was the one! 

I love how they came out, and the quality is great.  Nice cardstock that is not flimsy at all.  The package also included the RSVP cards and Enclosure cards.  I love how all the cards have a front and back design.  The RSVP are postcards so we can just add a postcard stamp and have our guests mail them back to us.

My friend Yuchen also helped address my envelopes (available for hire! ;D).  As she did with my Save the Dates!  They came out really beautiful.  I couldn't have written them myself as fast or fluid since I don't have years of practices (just days!)  They definitely put the finishing touches on my invitations.

  1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
