A Funny Card 
This is totally underrated! I still love getting cards and/or notes in the mail. In a world driven by technology, it's nice to receive something that gives a little personal touch. Julie Ann Art via Etsy has the cutest cards for all wedding occasions! Tip: Feel free to include a photo of you and your hubby!

Create a custom and personalized timeline that ends with a surprise for family & friends! These pieces can be ordered via Etsy and serve as a nice keepsake for you and your recipients.

Post a Photo
Okay, okay... I know we can't ignore the fact that posting on social media is an inevitable trend. But there are ways to go about it that aren't a total cliché. One way to do so is to include HIM! Yes, include the man that put the ring on that finger! And please try to spice up the caption to something more than "We're engaged!!!!"
