While most of the decisions regarding our wedding have caused me some serious stress (I hate making decisions!), our Save The Dates was one of the first and easiest ones we made. About 2 weeks after getting engaged, a friend of mine from college sent out an email describing her new children's card shop on Etsy. After perusing her designs, I knew a custom Save The Date from her was a must. They were all so simple and sweet, just the theme I wanted to convey.
Seriously, how could I not fall in love with these?
She also makes beautiful notecards (thank you note possibilities?!?!)
So I emailed her, asking if there was any way she could modify one of the existing cards into a Save The Date and whether she had the printing capabilities to print off about 150. She was more than happy to make the changes and could print out that many so the decision was made and about 2 months later, I picked up our oh-so-beautiful cards.
They are printed one a piece of cardstock that went into a white envelope with another pale yellow insert. The insert was a very simple DIY project that I created on word, including information about our wedding website, and had printed on at Staples, since our printer was broken. I stuffed both and sent them off (way way way too early. but that's another post :). So, without further ado, here's our lovely STDs (HA! That acronym always makes the 12-year-old inside me giggle). The first image is a close up of the actual design and the second picture includes the insert:
At about $1.25 a piece, they were reasonably priced for custom work. You can check out more of my friend's cards at her Etsy store: www.homadedesigns.etsy.com.
What do you think? How'd you decide on your Save The Date?
