Save the Date!
With all the craziness going on in my life right now, wedding planning has unfortunately taken a back seat. Good thing I got a lot done early! But I want to get back on track with my wedding update posts since the big day is coming in a hurry...
A couple months back, I sent out our Save the Date magnets. It was quite a process to create, print, and package these little beauties. Thank God for my best friend/graphic designer Kari. She seriously is the best! I dont think anyone else would put up with me and my picky-ness with so much patience like Kari does. We went through several designs, dozens of fonts, and countless color schemes before I finally settled on the perfect layout.
Here are some of the runner ups...
We were extremely close to picking this one!
After a lot of back and forth, several hours of contemplation, and a couple family polls, we finally decided on THE ONE. Allow me to introduce you to our official Save the Date magnet:
(I blurred out our wedding website that appears at the bottom)
Now that I had my design (thanks to Kari), I was ready to head into production mode. So I headed over to Vistaprint.com where I printed 200 magnets for $40 and a self-inking return address stamp ($8). I then ordered some small, shimmery envelopes from envelopemall.com ($10/100 pack), and I printed a personal message from Corey and I to include in every envelope. I then got to stuffing, licking, sealing and stamping.
Doesn't look like much with all the addresses blurred, but you get the idea!
It's so awesome to see our save the date on all our friends' and family's fridges when we go places. I have one in my office at work that I look at constantly.
Thank you Kari, for being the best best friend in the whole world that also happens to be an extremely talented graphic designer!
I've already got my invitations... which I am IN LOVE with! I'll show you guys those after I send them out in a couple months!
