Just saw this today and thought I’d share.
Some stuff may be location-specific, others will work no matter where you are (in the US at least). We very much saved money using deals like this for Save-The-Date Cards, guestbook, photo album, etc., and thought I’d pass it along. I kinda wish we’d had the option of doing the skylanterns!

@HopefulForLittleOne: Just took advantage of one of the great vistaprint deals to get the (~$100 with shipping) worth of save the dates and thank you cards we were already planning on getting from there for $34! That’s basically a third of what it would have cost! (If you spend a certain amount over the value of the coupon they give you free shipping too!)
Thanks so much 🙂

Also wanted to add that the Luminess deal is something to be considered too! It’s an at home airbrush makeup system. I bought one around christmas last year from another company named Dinair and overall I have nothing but good things to say about it! The two are both rated very highly from the extensive research I read online and the mechanisms are almost identical (I just took the one with the better Christmas-time special!) But it’s $89 right now on LivingSocial which is great! It’s super quick (takes me 5-10 minutes to do concealer, foundation and blush in the morning) and you can do lips, eye shadow and even eyeliner too (I just prefer to do my eye makeup by hand). The best part for me is that I don’t have to touch my face AT ALL which makes a huge difference in my skin. It takes about 5 min to clean it when you’re done.
Also for those who are afraid of the cost, though the initial investment may seem expensive, the actual makeup for it is no more expensive than my drug store foundation was (about 3 oz for $12 I think and I used to use Revlon colorstay for comparison) and I don’t have to replace it as often because you only use a few drops each time. It’s got a really easy learning curve and I will be using to airbrush myself and my bridesmaids on my wedding day and it will save me money and them! they are each going to purchase a sample size bottle of foundation in their color from the company and some are splitting the bottles since you can get multiple (maybe even 10? applications from one .25 ounce bottle) so it works out to about $4 per bridesmaid to have their makeup airbrushed! Good deal!
Also I’m not sure about Luminess but Dinair actually sells wedding makeup kits you can buy that comes with all the eye makeup etc. for a certain look for your wedding day.
