3 Pieces of Stationery You Really Need PDF Print
  • What They’re For - Sent six to nine months before your wedding date, the save-the-dates give guests their first peek at your plans.
  • Why You Don't Really Need Them - Marrying close to home? Guests don't need more than the two months' notice they'll get from the invites. 
  • Why You Might Want Them Anyway - If you're having a destination wedding, inviting lots of out-of-towners or getting married on a holiday weekend or during a busy travel time, a save-the-date will give guests the info they need early, like where you've reserved hotel rooms
  • What They're For - They give guests the date, time and place of your wedding -- and solicit their RSVPs so you know who's coming.
  • Why You Need Them - There's no getting around having wedding invitations. Even if you're only inviting a dozen guests, it still merits a printed card. Include response cards too; they make it easier to keep track of who's coming -- and who still needs to let you know. Resist the urge to email your invites; yes, it'll save trees and money, but your grandma won't get it.
  • Tip - If you want to scale back -- and save on postage -- skip the unsealed envelope inside the main envelope, the reception card (unless your ceremony is in a different location) and that pointless piece of tissue paper. 
  • What They're For - This one's pretty obvious - thanking guests for attending your wedding and giving you gifts, of course! 
  • Why You Need Them - Another no-brainer: You must send a personal thank-you note for each and every gift you receive, whether they were wedding gifts, shower gifts or engagement gifts. Even if guests of yours "forgot" to bring a gift (and still haven't remembered a month later), show them that you're grateful that they helped you celebrate. These also let you play the part of gracious host, particularly if you had a large wedding and didn't find time to talk extensively with everyone who was there.

Why should I upgrade to Internet Explorer 7? Microsoft has redesigned Internet Explorer from the ground up, with better security, new capabilities, and a whole new interface. Many changes resulted from the feedback of millions of users who tested prerelease versions of the new browser. The most compelling reason to upgrade is the improved security. The Internet of today is not the Internet of five years ago. There are dangers that simply didn't exist back in 2001, when Internet Explorer 6 was released to the world. Internet Explorer 7 makes surfing the web fundamentally safer by offering greater protection against viruses, spyware, and other online risks.
