Let’s start this post off with one of the most important tips you’ll want to keep in your back pocket as you make your way gratituding it up all over the place… Remember, your wedding day would not have been nearly as special without the help of your loved ones. Your friends and family deserve a proper thank you–all 250 of them. They didn’t complain when you asked them to be present for cake tastings and flower showings. They didn’t moan and groan (we hope) during the wedding set up. Now it’s your turn to tell them just how much you appreciated their positive influence and energy during the whole process.

Given the current quarantine state of affairs, this is the perfect time to knock this forever-on-your-to-do-list task right out of the park! So no more procrastinating, let’s get those wedding thank you cards mailed.  Continue reading

Easy way to collect addresses for wedding (for free)

A wedding address collector is not the first thing you think of after the engagement ring’s initial debut. But collecting wedding guests’ addresses can easily become the bane of your wedding planning existence unless of course you have an easy little tool. Getting engaged to your forever partner in crime means an endless stream of congratulatory texts, Facebook messages and the periodic (and far more personal) congratulations cards. You may have chosen to plan an engagement party or kept the celebrations between just a select few (for now). Either way, the real planning hasn’t quite kicked off. 

To get the wedding planning started, one of the first pieces of the puzzle once you’ve narrowed down your wedding guest list will be to collect mailing addresses. Lucky for you, we’ve got an easy way to get addresses for your wedding! Actually, it’s likely the easiest part of your whole wedding planning process.

Easy to use. Private & secure. Oh and it’s absolutely FREE!

Before collecting addresses, you’ll need a guest list.

Collecting addresses is the easy part. But first, you’ll need a guest list.

Before you can collect addresses, you’ll need to get that mental guest list down on some paper (or a spreadsheet). Once you’ve completed that, the hard part is over!

How to easily* collect mailing addresses from your guests.

While some aspects of getting started to plan your big day may be overwhelming, when it comes to how to collect mailing addresses for wedding invites, Postable makes it easy.
