It’s FRIDAY! I am super excited for this weekend. I’m heading to Vancouver with my friend Ashley for a letterpress class. SO excited.

But enough of that, I have a mini confession to make. If you asked me what the hardest part of my wedding to conceptualize, it would be the thank you cards. I mean, really, how hard is it to say thank you to the family and friends who took the time to share our special day? Apparently very hard for me that is, considering I often think too much. So I was trying to come up with a unique way to say thank you and ended up turning to moo.com. They make THE cutest mini cards, so I figured I’d find a way to use them, along with their photo one-sided cards. Here’s what I came up with!

Oh how I love creative packaging…

We had 4 different moo cards created. After hole punching them, we put each set of four together with a silver braid. I ended up getting square silver ones to match the theme of the wedding even though it doesn’t show in the pictures. On the other side of the cards is our monograms. We know it isn’t much but we figured this little keepsake might be a nice little touch for people to remember the day.

Along with the little booklets, we had cards made with one of our wedding photos on the front. The other side was blank for us to write our messages. At the bottom left corner of the blank side was a lyrical line from our processional and one that was present on our programs.

And now it’s a matter of hand-writing each one. AH! But so well worth it.

Moo is great — this is a great idea for a modern wedding! Definitely will have to pass this along to my brides! I just discovered this site not too long ago and I think it’s awesome to have a great Canadian wedding blog…thank you!

What a great idea! This has inspired me to be more creative!

I like that idea, its cute and people get a wedding picture instead of generic card.
We are too strapped for cash after our wedding since I don’t work much in the summer, so we decided to buy a bunch of postcards on our honeymoon in the Dominican, and we are using those as thank yous, especially since most of the guests have never been.

AH! I love Moo.com…we used them to create our Save the Dates!

Moo.com is awesome. It’s a little more on the pricey side but It’s worth it for what you get.

Love it Melissa!

I love this idea! I don’t think I’ve heard of Moo before, their site is very neat. I was wondering, where did you get your fabric with the blue and white pattern? We’re looking for a modern print for the backdrop of our photo booth.

Liz M on September 21, 2010

I love Moo and absolutely love your thank-yous! They are fabulously creative and so incredibly personal.
Challena: postcards are a great way to share another part of your wedding celebrations with your guests!
Liz M: If you’re in Edmonton and can find it within your budget to get a custom backdrop made, you definitely need to speak with Jenelle of PinkPolka - she’ll be able to create a modern, printed backdrop and/or banner for your photo booth. It’s a great way to develop your wedding style. Happy planning!

Moo is so great, we are using them for our wedding too, we even made stamps out of their new sticker products.

Great idea!

Christina (plus) Nathan on September 22, 2010

Thanks everyone!

Liz - The turqouise patterned backdrop is actually my dinner placemat haha! I would actually suggest looking at some fabric stores for some modern fabric and using that as your backdrop. I know of a couple places online if you’re interested, just shoot me an email and I’ll try my best to help you!
