My Save the Dates Have Arrived!

I'm so excited.  I ordered these from and they were super cheap.  I love the way they came out!  Now all I have to do is buy some A2 envelopes and they're good to go.

Also, I FINALLY figured out what to do for invitations.  My good friend Ruby is an art teacher at a California high school.  She said she would have a contest for her advanced art students where they can design wedding invitations for us and we can pick the ones we like the best.  All I have to pay for is the paper!  This is saving me so much money and it will be unique and special because they are custom made.  I'm so excited to see what they create!

Save the Dates

I ordered my Save The Date magnets from so hopefully they will come in within the next week or two.  I'll post pictures when they do.  They were super cheap...I spent about $85 on 200 of them.  I'm thinking of having them print out invitations to match the magnet and then I will just buy pocket folds and decorate them on my own.  It would only cost me about $100 for 200 invites and 200 RSVP card.  Not too shabby.  I know the quality is not going to be amazing but it's a piece of paper so I really don't care.  I figure I can jass them up with ribbons or something.

So I found a girl named Jessica who is willing to do my invitations and accommodate my very tight budget.  She is trying to get into the stationary business and is looking to expand her portfolio.  So basically she is willing to do the entire thing for free and all I have to do is pay for the materials!  This is going to save me a lot of time and aggravation.

We're going for a movie-themed wedding.  Movies are one of the first things we bonded over and it's something that continues to unite us so I think it would be a great thing to emphasize during our reception.  It's hard to find things that are movie-themed and not completely cheesy so a lot of it is going to have to be custom made.

This is what I am going for with the stationary.  I found this on etsy and loved it so I am hoping Jessica can come up with something similar.  I think it looks whimsical yet expensive.

This is what I would like the response cards to look like.  Our colors are purple and yellow so obviously we would use some of those colors in the stationary but this is the basic design I would like to base my response postcards on.

So that's the basic plan for stationary.  These designs I've showed you were made by and I am hoping to do something similar.
