The search for the perfect card.

greeting card anxiety.


Shopping for a greeting card could take 30 seconds or 30 minutes.  If you are like myself, searching for a wedding card takes 30 minutes and maybe 3 different stores.  It’s amazing how slim the wedding/engagement selection is, given the fact that the majority of guests give cards at weddings and have gifts sent to the couple.  Even at some higher-end specialty card stores, I have trouble finding with personality, they are too small, or any other factor that makes me immediately place them back on the shelf.

Attention stationary retailers: the wedding section could REALLY use some work.  If you want me stop disrupting your wedding section by looking at every card, I suggest procuring some of these Etsy designs.

    I always have this issue. I was in a hurry for the last wedding and I gave the strangest card ever. It is terrible because so many of the gifts I give are just off the registry or money, I want the card to at least be personable, and normally they are so generic! OMG I may have to make a post about this as well I feel inspired:) These are all adorable options… what would one do without etsy?

    Definitely relate to that frustration! Even though I look in Target and Hallmark and all that, I always end up at Paper Source–Rifle Paper Co never fails me there! I love all of these options though, especially the his and hers cowboy boots, for obvious reasons :)

    Good stationery is always hard to find. And wedding stationery even more so. The first one is lovely and funny.
