Free admission? I sure hope so!

One entry per ticket, please

I’d never advocate charging admission to your nuptials, but I adore the idea of using tickets as save-the-dates and invitations. There’s a fun app at Says-It that lets you create a custom event ticket to put on your wedding web site. If you want a really professional looking ticket, buy ’em from professionals like Admit One or Ticket Printing. As far as the price goes, it’s pretty darn reasonable!

This would work best for casual weddings or weddings taking place at sporty locations. You could also use these for shower invites, rehearsal invites, bachelor party invites, or favor tags.

So apparently it’s Cyber Monday, the online analog of Black Friday? I predict that in fifteen or so years every day of the year will have it’s own shopping name. Someone on Metafilter said, “Black Friday is for people who haven’t heard of pre-ordering or online shopping” and I agree completely. I always look for free shipping because shipping charges are the last online buying barrier.

Am I shopping for something today? Yes, but it’s not my fault! Somewhere along the line I apparently offered to bake Christmas cookies for family members. That’s a big oops. That’s why I’m getting ready to buy reusable gift bags right now. I hate wrapping paper…almost as much as I hate rolling out cookies.

    i love those tickets. i actually made my own for a bachelorette party that went over fantastically well. i even got a random compliment from the staff at kinko’s

    I’m not surprised you were lauded by the Kinkos people, talda. They probably spend all day printing out boring old business reports. It must be a breath of fresh air to see something creative!

    Hi Never teh Bride!

    I didn’t know you are from the Merritt Island area! We will be moving down to Melbourne after my husband retires from the Air Force. Maybe we can meet some time!

    Actually Rhonda, The Beard and I just tied the knot there. My grandmother has a sweet property on the river…it was the perfect ceremony/reception site! But I do go down every now and again to visit the fam, so they will always be opportunities to do lunch or whatever once you’re established in the area 🙂
