It’s time for another edition of Wedding Wednesday! You can catch up with me on all things wedding related here. I figured it was time to share my save the dates with y’all because I had been talking about them for so long. I haven’t sent them out yet and likely won’t be sending them until this weekend, so hopefully none of my real life friends decide to check the blog over the next few days. I didn’t want spend tons of money on these so today I am sharing with you how to make save the dates on a budget.
Save the Dates on a Budget
I searched around forever on Etsy and various other paper goods sites but could not find save the dates that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg for the life of me. I had heard about Vistaprint even before even beginning my search but never thought that I would end up using them.
Now that I have my save the dates in hand, I am so glad that I went with them. Although they aren’t the most fancy save the dates out there, they are still cute and get the job done…and best of all didn’t cost a fortune. We used one of their pre-made templates and just added our own pictures and font and whatnot. The back of the card is just a dark gray background with our wedding website so I didn’t think that y’all would be too interested in seeing that part. I think they came out so cute and I cannot wait to get them in the mail so that all of our friends and family can see them. They came with a plain white envelope but to spice them up a little bit we ordered a custom stamp with our name and address which we can now use for our wedding invites, thank you notes, and basically anything in the future. I would show you our exact one but it has our address on it obviously so I didn’t think that would be the smartest idea. Our regular wedding invitations will of course be a little more fancy and splurge worthy because to me they are the most important of the two.
So if you or anyone you know is getting married in the near future, I definitely recommend at least checking into Vistaprint. They made the process so easy and definitely saved us a little money in the long run as well. Did you make your save the dates on a budget? Where did you purchase them from? Feel free to let me know down in the comments.
