These are from Minted, I really like how they turned out! The picture we used looks kind of dark here, but I think that’s just because of the lighting at my mom’s house. The orange block is covering up our names.

Obviously ignore the bright red marks… just protecting information.

I designed these save the date magnets and http://www.stickermule.com printed them. They were having a sale at the time where you could get 100 for $42. Also, this is just the original file. When I got them printed, they rounded the corners a bit and added a white outline (both requested by me).

My photographer designed them and had them printed on magnets for us.

andielle :  Ahhh that’s so cool! I really like how they turned out 🙂 We picked the linen color (we liked that it matched the best with the colors in our photo) and did a blurb on the back of the card with more info and our wedding website.

andielle :  I kind of based it off of a few other recent save the dates we’ve received. We’re having a semi-destination wedding so we wanted to make sure to give people a heads up that there will be a welcome dinner the night before that everyone is invited to. The back says:

“We are so excited to be exchanging vows in front of our friends and family on June 10, 2017 in Asheville, NC. Formal invitation to follow. The wedding festivaties will kick off the evening of Friday, June 10 at the welcome dinner hosted by ((FI’s parents)). 

We can’t wait to celebrate with you! For travel and wedding details be sure to visit our wedding website: xxxxxx”

We weren’t going to do STDs but it was suggested since all of FI’s family lives out of state.  We did the magnet ones and didn’t want a picture of us because we weren’t sure if people would be thrilled about having a picture of us on their fridge for the next several months.

Note: not our names

Here’s mine. All the different fonts make me twitchy, but my fiance chose them, so…I felt it was better to have him contribute than to overly micromanage everything, lol.  Otherwise I took a very basic template from vistaprint, added the photo, and voila! done.

andielle :  I think an at a distance kissing picture sounds sweet, especially with the flower-cut out of that save the date! We actually had a lot of trouble with photos as well, we aren’t taking our engagement photos with the wedding photographer until the spring (when we make another trip to the venue to make any final decisions) so we didn’t have any professional pictures to use.

We ended up going to a scenic/touristy area near where we live very early in the morning and taking photos with an iPhone timer. The photo was ended up choosing was taken by a very nice runner who figured out what we were doing and intervened to take a better picture lol!
