diy: save the dates

Anyone planning a wedding knows that every little thing adds up.  My fiance and I are already over our budget and have been looking for ways to cut out unnecessary expenses without compromising quality.  We wanted to order magnet save-the-dates and hire a photographer to take the pics.  Unfortunately, all photographers we contacted were very expensive so we decided to ask a family friend with a nice camera to take our pics.  We took some really fun pictures in an amusement park and are very happy with the results.

We will use photoshop to add text to the image and then print 4 x 6 cards via a company called Overnightprints.  Once we get the cards, we will buy a roll of magnet tape, cut strips and stick them onto the back of the cards.  Voila!  Magnet save the dates for about $120 less than we would have had to pay had we ordered them as magnets straight off.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from our photo shoot…we wont be using it for the save-the-dates but I still love it very much 🙂
