We don’t do save the dates around here as a standard.  It’s all word of mouth, I have spoken to everyone invited over the past few months.

My invites are DIY from Michael’s.  http://www.michaels.com/BRIDES%C2%AE-White-Wisp-Invitation/wd0526,default,pd.html?start=21&cgid=products-wedding-invitations

They aren’t fancy but I love how they look in person.  I couldn’t find the perfect green invitations and decided to play it safe.

Save the dates! A postcard (but we put the stamp, the address and the little message on the back of this–that stamp you see there is just an image.)

Invites (I’m doing the wax seals now!)

Here are my STDs!!  I did the photography myself with a tripod and created the postcard in Microsoft Publisher!  I tried photoshop but got frustrated trying to resize the images!  Also, once we got them printed (for $6.00 at Office Max!!!!!!!) I rounded the corners before I sent them!  Total cost including postage: ~$31 woohoo!

@missmouse29: Thanks! I designed with him looking over my shoulder. I wrote the whole thing with a calligraphy pen. πŸ™‚ The RSVP card– I cheated, I scanned the invite and scaled the pattern down on the computer. Sneaky sneaky.

@MrsMcGyro:I love the bicycle! That is AWESOME.

 

@TXNHBride: I love that you did the writing in the sand, too. That was a must have for me. πŸ™‚

 

@retreadbride:Cool. Very cool.

 

 

@crystlrox:Aww, sweet! Where did you get them made?

Aww! Everyone’s Save-The-Date Cards and invitations look so great! I’m excited for us πŸ™‚ We have about 3 months and change… so woohoo!

By The Way, I got my Save-The-Date Cards from Peartreegreetngs.com They only have a few designs but ended up being the cheapest for what I wanted! I guess I have to figure out programs now…

Here are ours!  We compromised… I wanted a blue background with white text, but he just couldn’t imagine not having White invitations. (Sorry for the bad lighting!)

@ellabee: We also had our Save-The-Date Cards (magnets) and invitations done by Magnetstreet.com.  You can customize them SO MUCH and the service and quality was excellent.  Also loved the 20% coupon off the invites.

Blue Vista pearlized envelopes from Paperandmore.com  We also got matching paper for the Menus and Ceremony Programs.
