    Most people who do them say they took a ton of work and time but they enjoyed it .I'm not the crafty gurl so I was like nooooo. Because I'd saved so much money on other things. That was my one splurge for myself. Since my fiance is not the big on pictures type. I didn't have to go big on photography

    I cut corners on only sending invitations to those I know will be attending and to ederly/sick that I know would attend if they could as a momento for them and everyone else gets the savs the dates. I had 3different styles of them. (Had lotd of gift cards from davids bridal for shutterfly) lol

    You guys got me wanting a an AHR now.... my FI will kill me if I even mention it maybe I'll mention it to my future SIL and maybe she can convince him lol. I seriously need to get organized. I found an old accordion folder to store items. I need to hurry up and hit my 150 post so that I can see some of these attachments. I think I might want to attempt passport invites. I just need to see how time consuming and involved they will be. Oh... And I went to the post office today. Totally didnt factor that not my budget :confused:

    It didnt take me long to do them, assembling 40 took me an hour, and to print and cut took me 2.5hrs. I have a template that i can send you when im at work monday if you give me ypur email

Mine are 4 inside pages which is 8 of info bc i used parchment paper which i have like 100 sheets of left over and can totally send it to anyone who needs it lol and i have a template for the rsvp cards and used a preferator tool that i bought for $2 and the corner rounder punch i used a coupon and it was like $3 which my fiance did the corners for me lol and got the envelopes from paperandmore.com but than realized later on michaels sells them and if i used the coupon it woulda been cheaper oh well LOL.

          I have been traveling for work all week, I've been keeping up with everyone's posts but not posting myself.  I wanted to welcome the 2 new girls, MrsPeele2B and myyooths. 

           

          The girls on here have great tips and they are some savvy DIYers, I however am not one of them. I am however very good at ordering off ETSY, it has been my saving grace!
