We are planning a 3 day wedding event and the typical save the date just didn't give enough info, so we decided to make them ourselves. It was a TON of work cutting 500+ pieces of paper and tying over 100 ribbons but it was SO worth it!! I have gotten so many compliments from my family and friends. We added personalized stamps from photostamps.com. I highly recommend these personal touches whenever possible, it makes your save the dates/invitations that much sweeter. Plus - my future hubby is so proud. :)
I used envelopemall.com for my envelopes, americanstationary.com for the labels, and paperandmore.com for the vellum and cardstock. All three places had a great prices and super fast shipping. All in all I think these probably ran about $.75 each (excluding postage), which ended up being so much more budget friendly than anything I found online.
Don't forget to take pictures and save one for yourself. Mine will come in very handy for my future wedding planning biz.
Peter and I got engaged in June and married a year later, July 2008. Our wedding at the Crossroads Estate was a dream, as it is for every bride! It was such a personal day for Peter and I, as so much planning and personal touches went into every detail. It was very much a DIY event! From invitations to place cards, programs to favors, almost every piece of stationary was made by a "Taylor". (or soon to be)
Our whirlwind wedding and design it yourself projects helped me to discover my love for planning and creating weddings. I couldn't go to sleep without thinking of grossgrain ribbon and the perfect pink peony. So, to indulge my creative side I began A Taylor Made Wedding. Since our in 2008 I've had the privelege of working with some amazing brides and can't wait to continue my work with many more.
