I love the weekends; that goes without saying. It’s that amazing time at the end of a crazy five days when we get to unwind, drink coffee in our pajamas and peruse a week’s worth of pretty on the gorgeous NEW SMP! And I couldn’t be more excited to bring you six advertisers new to the SMP lineup. With giveaways + discounts, galore, you’ll be much obliged to make their acquaintance! My dears, say hello to Postable, Cupcake Vineyards, Jenny Yoo, Twenty Pages, Pressed Cotton and Paper Source. Now sit back and relax, because this giveaway-filled weekend is about to make an entrance!
As a past bride, I can fully admit that the worst part of planning was collecting the addresses of all my guests. For whatever reason, the painfully daunting task left me calling, emailing, scrambling and stressing! So when I heard about Postable, the insanely easy-to-use online address collecting system, I had a serious “I wish this existed when I got married,” moment. Totally free, private + secure, this little website is an absolute game-changer. Postable will give you a personalized link that you can send to friends and family (postable.com/YourName). They’ll fill out a 10-second form and, voila!, your address book fills up with up-to-date info!
With Postable, once your guest list is complete, you can easily export the whole shebang to Excel or as text in a word processing program. Believe you me, your calligrapher or stationer will be thanking you for those clean, organized addresses! I know. It’s so good. Happy addressing, my dears! xo
