Is this stupid?

So I need to send my STD's out soon.  We are taking our engagement pics next week.

So I found these really cute magnets that I want to order, but I also want to order STD postcards with our engagement pics on them.

I would order just the magnets with our pics on them but they are super expensive since I have to get them through my photographer. 

Is it stupid to do both or is this common??

    Yes.

    If you really want postcards and magnets, then I suppose you could put them together in a single envelope, but I think two separate mailings would be over the top.

  • I know plenty of people who have done both.  Just send them out together.  Just make sure its really worth the cost to have glossy pictures AND a magnet. 
  • I should have clarified that.  I would send them in one mailing!

  • I don't think its stupid.

  • I'm confuzzled.

    So you'd send a magnet... AND a postcard with pictures?  As in, cute magnet, and separate photos?

    Girlfriend I think you're gorg and all, but I vote either one or the other and save yourself some money, cause sad but true, people will only keep that stuff till the wedding, then toss it.
  • I am doing something similar.  Our STD has pictures on it but I want some of our family to also have a keepsake so I am sending them extra.  Only doing one mailing.  Just remember the heavier your envelope is the more it will be.

    Agreed.  It sounds like overkill to me.  Also, when I get a STD or invite, I put the information on my calendar and then toss the STD/invite.  I'd bet a million dollars I'm not the only one who does this.

    If you want to do it, go ahead, it just sound like a bit much to me, and not worth your money.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    Lol, yeah Im thinking of just doing the post card thing with the photos and all the info.  I was just afraid that since its not a magnet, people would lose it.

    I think im just being silly.  People will get it, write the date down, and toss it, right?

    Classic over-analyzing on my part.  Thanks for the insight girls.  I definitely dont want to be an AW by sending too much, lol

  • When you get your e-pics, definitely have *some* printed for grandparents and whatnot.

    For weeks and weeks, my grandma had some weird picture of Josh & I at our engagement party on her fridge, he was chomping on some kind of appetizer and I was mid-word.  It was awkward and ugly.  I replaced it with the one below lol.

  • If you really, really want to send both there is nothing wrong with it, but I agree with the PP who said people will toss that stuff after the wedding... Sensible thing is to save money and send just one thing.
  • I say just save your money and send either the postcard or the magnet, especially if the magnets you want are expensive. I will say, however, that I'm kind of a magnet whore (I always need them) so I keep magnet STDs because they're useful!
  • Have you checked alternate vendors for the magnets?  I've seen a photo magnet and they are pretty cool, maybe you can find them for a lower price...

    Enjoy!

    I really like the magnet idea...I always use magnets!  Heck, I got sent a STD magnet accidentally for a stranger's wedding, and I still used it...it didn't have their picture on it, so I hope that takes the creepy down a notch. 

    Just print out some nice e-pics to give to family--they're the ones who will really hang on to that kind of a thing.

    ETA:  sorry, didn't see this was resolved 2 days ago.  My bad.
