          Yeah the magnet itself is the save the date. I did it through vistaprint! one half is a picture of us and the other side there is a starfish near the top, and the writing "Save the Date" big. And then under that our names and the date (January 2015) and destination (somewhere sunny and warm) and at the very bottom I put *formal invititation to follow* they turned out really really nice! Once I get them, which will hopefully be next week, I will try to take a picture and post it! The lame part is the quantities go up in twns until 50 and then it jumps to 100. We only really need like 60, but when you factor in shipping for doing two orders, it was cheaper to just get 100... lol it will be $90 plus $20 for 3 day express shipping.


          I made a magnet std, and just bought business card magnet's at staples... they were flat and had a sticky back to put on them, a box of 50 was only $15, and a box of 100 was $25!

            You'll get there soon enough!! Just reply to the last days posts here and you'll be a good  bit on your way!

            I still havent had a proper look at all the templates.

            Cant open them on my laptop so have to try it on the PC which has a few more programs installed. Thing is the computer is so slow and usually only have a few minutes at a time when I go online.

            The Boarding pass invites that I was thinking of look like they are very time consuming. Dont know if I have either the time or paticence to do them!

                I did the boarding pass invites.... Beautiful... Super easy.... VERY time consuming! But I was very proud to brag to everyone who asked, "your invitations are beautiful, where'd you get them?" And I could say, "we made them ourselves!" Lucky for me, my FI was not afraid to pick up a pair of scissors n help! He's so great!

                   I'm doing my STD holders as well as my boarding pass invites! I just googled "boarding pass template" and found one to start playing around with. My FI is the same and has already taken on the duty of stamping the palm tree on the front of the holder :) I like that he is willing to help.. I just hope it lasts and he doesn't get bored lol

                  I'm nervous that the time is going to fly by.. that is why I am adament about starting things early... I work 3 jobs, so finding spare time is difficult as it is.. I get more stressed out if I leave things without even having a plan.. haha

                    Smart girl!!! Get ahead and do what you can! I'm a month away with a million and one things to do and no time to do it! Isn't it great our men aren't afraid of rolling up their sleeves. I always felt bad when brides complained that their future hubby wanted no part of the wedding planning process except to show up. Yaaaayyyy for us!

                      I would love to have the patience and creativity to do it myself but I for sure don't lol if I tried to make them myself it would look like a kindergarten art project gone wrong :P
