Save The Date

This is the magnet made on Vistaprint.com - used a free coupon and order more a discounted price.  For 225 - they were $0.24 each including shipping!!  They are beautiful and just what I was looking for.  They will be attached to a card.

The front of the card is embossed.  Under the magnet it says formal invitation to follow.
The poem reads:
It still may be early
but we hope you're delighted
'cause we've set the date
and we're very excited!
In October 2010 our vows will be made
Sunday the tenth is the day to be saved.
Our wedding day is fast approaching
and we cannot wait,
so put this magnet on the fridge
and be sure to save the date!

Bar Menu

We wanted to do signature drinks and saw some people used the old, new, borrowed and blue as inspiration.  Here is our thus far.  It may change as we do more research.


These are semi-diy.  I created all the designs but had Paper Fling print and cut them for me.  It ended up being less than $100 more to have them professionally printed, and it saved me all the time and frustration of dealing with my printer.  Ruth even printed the names on all of the RSVPs for no extra charge!! This was the best money spent so far.  They turned out beautiful and I'm so happy.  Now just to assemble them.
