I found a great photo editing program called, PicMonkey. http://www.picmonkey.com They have a free version or you can pay $4.99 per month to open some additional tools. I went ahead and paid just for the month I was editing our engagement pictures and designing the save the dates. I cancelled the subscription and will resubscribe again to edit the actual wedding photos. We’re having my fiance’s aunt take the photos. She’s a great photographer, but doesn’t do any editing, which I’m totally comfortable with.

Here’s what they looked like. PicMonkey has all of the tools to both touchup the photos and add the banners, text, etc., and I used Vistaprint to print them.

@sosewmama:  I totally get that. I love the idea of using your kids’ photos, though!

@sosewmama:  I’m not a photo person, either.  I kept the STD very simple, in line with our nautical theme, and so far, everyone’s complimented them.

Do you have any general theme for the wedding? (Trees? Birds? Animals?)….as a mom of three, maybe you could do a graphic with 2 larger items and three smaller? Using “my” theme as an example, our overall graphic “item’ is of seahorses…I could theoretically have two large on the outside and three smaller in the middle….so, a subtle nod to the family being included, without an actual photo, etc.

I get the possible hint that you’re into sewing…..what do you sew? Rather than having to take the extra time to sew something, can you use a graphic that hints at a sewing theme?

The idea with your kids is cute. Personally I’m not a huge fan of photo save the dates, neither is my family. We went with a more modern design from wedding paper divas. Do you have a theme? You could always make them reflect your theme.
