- Wedding: April 2011
There is this picture of me and my Fiance that is just too BEAUTIFUL to not use for our STD cards, so my friend who is practically a photoshop pro helped me out. Mind you, this picture was taken over 3 years ago, when I wasn’t engaged, yet, and you can clearly see my left hand…so she used a picture of my hand with the ring on it, did some amazing things and now it looks like I was actually wearing the ring!! Let me know if any of you even notice that!
Also, I had to compromise with my Fiance. I had a cute idea and wanted to make it like a minature calendar…the picture being that picture of us, and then have the month of april’s 2011 calendar with a heart around the the 23rd (the date of our wedding). I thought it was a cute idea, it would fold just like a calendar does, obviously, much smaller! But the fiance just wanted to use the picture and not have to make it smaller by adding the “month calendar” to… so I compromised. I was able to put the calendar in it, using the picture as the background… take a look and see if it looks nice. Be honest!
I wanted to make the STD cards as a magnet, but all the sizes of magnets I’ve found are too small (max size I’ve found is 3.5×5.5), which I feel would distort the picture and make it unreadable, not to mention ruin the beauty of the picture!!
I thought by doing all this myself, I would save money, but it seems that they would have to do more work on it due it is size, etc. Any body know of a place that does 5×7 magnets? Or does anybody have any other suggestions? I REALLY want it to be a magnet because that way it will be on my guests fridge so when the swtich from their 2010 calendar to 2011, then will remember to add it and mark it on their calendar!
Anyways, please let me know if you like the actual STD card, if something should be changed/added…. (i blacked out my first name, and my Fiance last name for privacy reasons, but since the font for our first and last name our different styles I had to do it that way)
Oh.. when is the proper time to send out the STD cards? How many months prior to the wedding? How many months prior to sending out the formal invites…
