    So I considered doing the DIY save the date thing, and many of you on this board make me ashamed that I bailed on the whole project with the elaborate, amazing work you've posted...but things got extremely hectic with work, plus I'm the MOH for my BF's wedding August, and I feel way behind in my planning (I'm not even getting these out the standard nine months in advance!)

    I even got overwhelmed contacting companies about making my STDs. So I passed all my information and contacts on to my mom and she took over the whole project. She has really become my life saver. All I had to do was go to this stationary store, Papyrus, on my last visit home and choice ink colors for the fonts because she had found these great trifold cards by William Arthur...

    I thought I'd post them and get your feedback on the color choices and the ecru paper because we're thinking about having them being the same for the invitiations - oh, and the lime green and mango/bright orange are going to be our wedding colors I think...

    Back panel - the calendar is perforated so you can tear it off and put it on the fridge, in your date book, on your calendar, whatever...

      Very cute! And sometimes it is nice to hand over the reigns to someone else. Your mom did a great job.

          They look really nice. Initially I wanted to do all my projects myself but just like you life got hectic. We did do our save the dates but when it came time to do our wedding invitations it was too much. Thank God I ended up finding an amazing woman who does custome made invitations who is charging me the same price as if I would have made them myself. Don't feel bad for passing on projects. Although it's really neat to do your own stuff for the wedding it does take a lot of work. I have to give it to our DIY brides....it's not an easy job.

                    Very cute! I think they are simple chic! I love the tear off calendar- it's ingenious!

                    I don't think you need to feel bad about not DIYing. I only did a few of my own projects because I couldn't afford a professional. I would rather have someone else do it than me. :)
