- Wedding: March 2013
In my effort to save a dollar or two. I researched and reasearched my options for cute yet affordable save the dates and I am happy to say that I have spent less than $50 on my save the dates fr 170 guest!!
How do you ask?
I did it myself..well with the help of the friend people at fedex and I got my template from http://www.avery.com/gallery
I changed the template around but I just copied and pasted it through microsoft word. I was able to fit 10 STD on one page and then printed out 17 pages for $0.35 per page.
I went to hobby lobby and bought a roll of magnet tape for $4.99 and just cut and snipped everything together. I bought my envelopes for $30…which brings me to a whopping—$41.00 for my STD’s!!
The stamps are what is costing the most..$8 for a book of 20 cost me $72 just so I would have enough for my 170 guest…so the stamps cost more than the actually Save-The-Date Cards.
Now if only I could have found a cheaper way to mail them other than email since we have so many non-techy mature people coming to the wedding.
I will post a photo of my STD as soon as I figure out how to upload it to wedding bee from my phone :))..any tips
