Save The Dates
Thursday, October 24, 2013
I started working on our save the date magnets and labels as soon as I got our engagement pictures back. I chose the Hidden Stripe layout for our magnets and the I Got You Babe for the labels. I customized both of them to match our style and wedding colors, ordered samples to make sure they looked okay, and then ordered 75 magnets & 100 labels from Magnet Street for about $170 bucks.
Here is the original Hidden Stripe magnet on their website:
I customized it to look like this (edited out Travis’ last name & the wedding location for privacy):
I also customized their I Got You Babe label set. The original looked like this:
And our version looked like this (edited our address out for privacy):
I received my order really fast, I believe within a week. They were sent in a really nice blue box that opens and closes easily. At first I thought, what a waste of money, but now that I’ve been working on these each night, the box is really nice to have. It holds EVERYTHING I need to put them together and I can neatly tuck the box away when I’m done for the night.
Most wedding timelines say that we need to send out our save the dates on November 30, but I don’t want ours to get lost in the Christmas card and holiday season rush, so I’m sending them out a little early. I’m trying to hand-deliver as many as possible, since I see my family and friends quite often. I’ve hand-delivered about two so far, and I’ve put together all of the out-of-staters to be mailed out this week.
I’m hoping to get these all sent on their way by November 1, but we’ll see. I spent about 20 minutes on them last night while Travis was making dinner, and I only got about 6 done.
