All that paper...


DIY paper projects are an amazing way to cut down on spending.  These aren't the huge ticket items (venue, photographer, music), but there are a heck of a lot of paper products involved in weddings and they certainly add up: save-the-dates, invitations and invitation inserts, rehearsal dinner invitations, ceremony programs, place cards, table numbers, menus...and the list goes on.  

I used to purchase my invitations, which were incredibly inexpensive and pretty darn sharp looking.  The invitations with envelopes and rsvp cards with pre-addressed envelopes ran us about $250 for 100 of all items.  Then I went to (during sale - they often have free shipping or money off/percentage discount specials) and purchased all sorts of paper and rubber stamps.  A combination of work by my home printer and some creative rubber stamping did the trick. also has fantastic choices for artisan rubber stamps.  I also printed homemade address labels and return address labels on colored oval address stickers that I bought on paper-source.  It was unique and stylish and far, FAR less expensive than hiring a calligrapher.  Plus, we got a ton of compliments.  In total, I saved myself hundreds.
