One of my favourite parts of wedding details are the invitations suites. I just love how they are the perfect opportunity to showcase your wedding before the big day. Considering one of my favourite places to browse the aisles at is Staples, I think it’s safe to say I have a thing for office supplies and stationery. Seriously, a new pack of pens can make my day. Don’t even get me started on filling out a fresh calendar.

When it came to our stationery,http://www.959888.info/zhagexinshuizhuluntan/201503/30.html,www.166368.com,http://www.80368.info/www_80368_info/201503/31.html,http://www.47492.info/47492_com/201503/16.html,http://www.9444888.info/www_9444888_info/201503/32.html,www.61004.com, prior to becoming engaged I had done a lot of searching and loving on inspiration for when it was our turn. At the time, I wasn’t sure how we would execute the plan. I knew that our stationery budget would be low and that, while I had a serious love for wedding stationery, I couldn’t prioritize it (over other priorities).
I had just purchased Photoshop for my business (just the Photoshop Elements 12 version) when we got engaged. A few weeks after our engagement (when the thrill of planning was still at an all-time high) I started playing around with ideas for our invitation suite for fun. After about two to three hours of “playing,”? I had a preliminary drafted suite. I hadn’t decided until that night that we would make all of our own wedding stationery. I now knew I could pull it off, and that I could save us a lot of money by doing so.

Since our invitation suite is still getting finished up to order, I had to back up a few steps and start thinking about save the dates. At first,香港天下彩报码,http://www.7084.info/xianggangliuhecaikaijiang/201503/12.html,http://www.38056.info/shuiguonainaidiyiluntan/201503/31.html, I wasn’t sure if we would do a save the date. Save the dates aren’t a necessary part of planning, but something I have a serious appreciation for. They had to be low in cost to be part of our wedding. If I was making them myself,http://www.88829.info/xianggangzuizaokaijiangjieguo/201503/13.html, I knew it was something we could easily squeeze into the budget.

I knew that I wanted to use an engagement photo for the save the date, while tying in to the invitation suite I had already drafted. I also knew that to keep the cost down,http://www.881516.info/www_881516_com/201503/31.html, it would have to be a postcard (to save on the cost of envelopes). To keep myself busy while waiting for our engagement photos, I did some searching to find the inspiration for our save the date.
Spoiler alert: This was what inspired our save the date. / Wedding Paper Divas Genuine Love
Once I had the photos in my hands, it was time to create our first piece of stationery!
