Our Save the Dates

Our save-the-date postcards have pretty much all been mailed off! Being the frugal control-freak that I am, I opted to photograph our own engagement pictures and design our own invites (and address every one in my own handwriting since I refused to let anyone help; I told you, I have a problem…). If you want to save money on your wedding stationery, postcards are the way to go. We ordered 100 of these for $41 from NextDayFlyers. I was a little nervous about how they would turn out since I'm usually wary of the print and color quality of these cheap & fast companies. But I couldn't be happier with the final result! The colors are accurate and the quality is crisp. Love 'em!

ps. How on earth is my wedding already only 4 months away? Yikes!

  1. I love how gorgeous and simple these save the date cards are. I think if I was in your position, I would be in control of everything, too.

    1. Thanks girl! :D Haha, yeah, I'm slowly but surely letting go of some of the responsibilities and letting my sister and mom help me out. But it's a process...

  3. Fantastic as always. I'm also relatively recently engaged and getting married the 13th of September. I really love this save the date, and though I'm not having save the dates, I am definitely inspired to do some more work on my invites before I send'em out.

    Also, thanks for the recommendation of nextdayflyers. I've been searching high and low for a printer who will produce good quality work. I was originally going to use moo.com but I didn't like how you couldn't print in certain areas of some of their products. What weight stock is the postcard if you don't mind me asking?

    1. Congrats on your engagement. :) NextDay's website says they use 14pt ultra-thick cardstock. I was originally going to use Moo also since I loved the quality of everything in their sample pack. But it was just unnecessarily expensive when we have so many other things we need to be spending money on. I'll probably go with them for my business cards though!

  4. Oh wow, I read "four months away" and I was like naww, and then I was like holy crap, that is so soon. These save the dates are gorgeous. And my wedding is nearly two weeks away, and I haven't even slightly given the reins to anyone but my fiance. No regrets! Some things truly are "if you want something done right, do it yourself."
