    Great advice! I love that lots of people here are frugal like me! Not everyone appreciates my love of the Dollar Store!!!

      I love the dollar store! Also the Christmas Tree Shop has tons of great stuff for the OOT bags. I have to stay away until it is closer to the wedding or else I will accumulate so much stuff I will not be able to get it down there!

        I can't imagine that it would be cheaper to do it yourself. We ordered 100 save the dates (postcards) that we uploaded our own image to (color front, black and white back), rush ordered the process, and paid $28!! and they came out great.

                Vistaprint, hands down! I got 50 glossy 5x7 postcards for FREE, all I had to do was pay shipping. Less than $10 total, for sure. The offers they send in their e-mails are amazing!

                  I didn't know about Vistaprint until I found this forum, but now that I'm on their mailing list, I have seen that they really do have some GREAT deals!!

                    Great post! The dollar tree has been my friend throughout planning. Thanks very helpful advice :) (maybe you should write a book on this stuff... lol)
