Save the Dates
February 20, 2008

My best friend in the entire world, Katie, got married a few months ago and I have to say, it was one of the best weddings that I have ever been to. Katie has this sense of style about her that is so unique and personal. She is crazy and quirky, but she is also extremely family oriented and loyal...and her wedding was just that.

Before I share with you the photos from the wedding though, I wanted to post a picture of her engagement shots that we used to create her Save the Dates. They are so stinking cute, you are going to looooove them....

Ummm, yeah. How great are those? For some of her engagement shots, Katie convinced the manager at this vintage theater to change the billboard for her to reflect her save the date info. For the actual save the dates, we bought some super heavy letterpress style paper (with just a touch of texture) and cut it down to 4 x 6" pieces. We printed the top photo on one side (using our home printer, an Epson R180), then set up the back as a postcard with basic information on the left side and the address on the right. It was SO easy and SO unbelievably cute.

We probably spent a total of $100 on supplies, the engagement photo was done for free because Katie bought a complete wedding package from the photographer, and the postage was less because we sent them as postcards. Pretty great, huh?

Stay tuned though...this super chic, but affordable theme stayed true through the entirety of Katie's wedding and I have lots of pretty pictures to show you!
