**MsMery**

You stated in a previous thread you were putting hotel accomodations on your STDs.  Do you have a sample of what your STD will look like? 

We've changed some things - most notably location and we'll need to include hotel accomodations as well on the STD.  Any help is appreciated. 

Thanks!

    Ok, so I only blocked one hotel because I have a lot of OOT guests and we'll be running a shuttle from this hotel to the ceremony and reception, which are about 2 miles away, if that. So far, my family seems willing to pay for it and I figure people can find a cheaper hotel (if they can in our area) if they really want to.

    So the front is just a generic picture of trees (for a fall wedding) and says "Please save the date for our wedding, Meredith and Oliver, October 10, 2010, Los Angeles California, Formal invitation to follow." Pretty standard.

    The back looks like this. BTW, I did this all in Vistaprint.




    Wording in case you can't read it:

    Rooms for our guests are being held at the following hotel until September 17:

    Hotel
    Hotel Address
    City, State, ZIP
    Phone

    Please reference the lastname/lastname wedding block, RES ID: 000000, when booking to obtain the discounted rate of $150 per night.

    Transportation will be provided between the hotel and the ceremony and reception sites.

    The closest airports are:
    Burbank (BUR) - x miles
    Los Angeles International (LAX) - x miles

    We look forward to seeing you in October.


    Then under our names I put the return address with a cute self-inking stamp I got from Vistaprint. It just has our address and a picture of a maple leaf. I thought I might use in on the invitation envelopes as well if I don't get the return address printed directly on the envelope.

    And just for kicks, this is what the front looks like. They turned out really well in person. Nice and glossy:




    We don't have a website because I don't think most of our guests would use it, but if we did I probably would have moved things up and put it on the bottom of the front.

    Because we don't have a website and don't have exact reception and cermony locations on the card, I'm just mailing them as postcards, no envelope. Cheaper that way.

    Yay, you picked the background I voted for! Very fall-ish and pretty. :)

    Thanks! Like I said, they look GREAT in person.

    Now I just have to track down everyone's address...

    Mery, that looks perfect!  I'm thinking about using just one hotel as well! 

    Did you use VistaPrint?

    Yeah, Vistaprint. I've used them before for business cards and was impressed with the quality for so little money. I didn't even want to do STDs, but with so many OOT guests I'm glad we did. I got them free and just paid shipping because I get their emails.
