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!

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

    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.

    I can’t possibly recommend them enough!!
