How to Save the Date? Part IV

If you missed anything, here are links to Part I, Part II, and Part III.

As you saw, we had five top choices from our engagement session for the photo on our save the date…so which one did we choose?


They’re HEREEEEEE. Seriously, when I picked up this bag I was giddy with excitement.

In the bag was the final product. Drum roll, please…


Our save the date!


Oh wait—there’s another!!

Yup—we were full of indecision and ended up with TWO versions of our save the dates. One of the photos was my favorite, one was his. Gotta make compromises—preparing for marriage!

Since the envelopes were already addressed, it was just a matter of stuffing, licking, and sending!


Envelopes are stuffed…time to seal them shut!


Ready to get out the door!


iPhone pic of the mailing process—not very glamorous since it’s in our condo’s lobby!

Were you excited to send out your save the dates??

    Sending out the save the dates makes it feel that much more real, doesn’t it! There are no take backs once those puppies go out.

    They both look beautiful! I too had a less than glamorous photo of me mailing them off haha. I like your version! :)

    I love the liners! Wait, I love it all! I was so excited to still our STD’s in the mail. Now it’s all about getting the invites out. Le sigh.

    What website did you use to create you STD’s? They look awesome!!

    skitelluride86 88 posts, Worker bee @ 10:56 pm I was able to find the site after seeing the tag on one of your pictures. However, I could not find the cost of how it costs to do STD’s. If you don’t mind me asking how much did it cost you per card/envelope.

    LOVE the way these turned out!

    turkey 654 posts, Busy bee @ 4:52 pm Since everything really varies (by size, photo / no photo, etc), I’d recommend you reach out to Two Paperdolls. That way you can get a real estimated based on what you’re planning! Here’s a link to their contact page:

    I can’t possibly recommend them enough!!
