After a long period, I FINALLY got my save the dates out last week. I initially planned on DIY, but i'm really just not that creative with arts and crafts and lacked the time to be able to do it the way I would have wanted it done as a slight perfectionist. So I caved in and ordered save the date magnets from Magnet Street, and ordered my invites from Allurement by Rebecca (AWESOME!!!!) I am so in love with my invites!!
I did an letter insert because I have a lot of older family that do NOT use the internet so to avoid a lot of questions ...this was the route we chose. The insert is a word document that i placed on a design from Vistaprint, and it included our greeting, our TA info, and on the back of the insert, I included the hotel blocks, cost, and gift registry. We bowed to family pressure regarding having a gift registry. I attempted to make the inner envelope that was included with the magnet less plain so I ordered customized monogram stickers from Zazzle.com. I also got gel glitter pens, rubber stamps and red and purple ink pads from Michaels. I traced around the sticker with the purple glitter pen and filled in the letter "O" in the word Love with the red glitter pen. Took a while but we're getting positive responses so that's great! I whited out our last name and wedding site but you can pm me if you want to see our website. Hope you like!
