Are you a #CovidCouple? As always, let me start with a big huge collective community air hug. We’re so sorry that what should have been a smooth sailing year of wedding planning and joy, has been interrupted by a nightmare pandemic and huge shifts to your plans. Feel free to pause here, step outside and let out a big scream. Or take ten deep breaths. Or punch a pillow. Times are tough for so many people right now, and while someone might try to remind you that ‘it’s just a wedding,’ we are here to say: It is your wedding, and you’re allowed to feel all the feels about it changing from what you had planned meticulously for—you’re allowed to grieve.
Maybe you’re a couple who managed to snag a marriage license and eloped, or you’ve pushed your wedding date off to 2021, or perhaps you’re still trying to figure it all out as things unfold. Whatever your plan is, you’ll need to communicate those changes and details with your guests so that they can save your new date, or join in your excitement of celebrating the special wedding you’ve already had. Sure, you could start with a Facebook update, or go through the trouble of getting new custom invitations or save-the-dates created… but that can get pricey and time-consuming.
What if I told you that in about no-time-at-all you could have customized ‘Change the Dates’ or ‘Wedding Announcements’ that are high-quality, totally affordable, and super easy to make? Now, what if I told you that you could pick them up in an hour or two (or have them shipped to you in just a couple of days), and they come with envelopes? You’d think I was making it up, right? Wrong. Walmart Photo is the place to go for quick, easy, inexpensive, and totally perfect pieces that you can get sent out to your guest list today. Really.
How? Give the people the details…
Here are the super-easy steps to make your very own, very quick, Change the Date or Wedding Announcements with Walmart Photo’s same-day services.
- Visit Walmart Photo (online)
- Click on the “Pickup Today” section
- Head to the “Wedding Cards” (you can sort by “Save the Dates” or “Wedding Announcements.”
- Pick a cute design (there are so many, or you could upload a custom design!)
- Customize (Walmart Photo makes it super easy to pick fonts, colors, and make adjustments to fit your vibe)
- Pick-up (or have them shipped, they’ll be to you in just a couple of days)
- Address them (we 100% approve of printing these on some labels and making your life easier)
- Mail them out (your stamps will help out the USPS in these difficult times, too. Win-win.)
When I went to pick-up these examples that we created, the kind person at my local Walmart Photo let me know that when they printed ours, something went awry with the ink and they weren’t perfect. Before I even arrived, they had re-printed a whole new set to be sure the quality was up to standards—and honestly, that’s the kind of customer service we all need right now (and always).
Ask them to join you on a new date
If you’re announcing a new wedding date, a new day for friends and family to reserve in their calendars and look forward to, you may as well make it cute and exciting. With Walmart Photo’s designs, you can add photos, important details, or even a joke. (We all need a spot of humor in this mess.) I was so impressed with all the different designs that you can choose from, and how customizable the fonts and details were—there’s no doubt you’ll find an option that works for you.
Tell them the good news
Did you get married already? Congratulations! Weddings (and reality) look a lot different than any of us planned for or expected, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t something to celebrate. Your family and friends are all looking for something to celebrate, too. Take this moment to share the news and let them join you in the joy!
What else can they do?
I was honestly blown away with how many items are available in Walmart Photo’s Same-Day services. You can have canvases printed, photo books, calendars, and more. All of which you can go pick-up an hour or two later. And with good quality? That’s a huge win, in a year when we need all the wins we can get. So while you’re ordering those elopement announcements, print a few photos for your walls at home. Or when you order your ‘Change the Date‘ cards, snag some engagement photo prints for your hallway. Now is as good a time as ever to freshen up your home space.
