Save The Dates

I decided to start this blog with an entry on our save the dates. I figured that since this was the first thing our wedding guests have seen, it should be the first thing all of you see as well. Although they were sent out a few months ago by now, I am still extremely excited with how they turned out! 

Our photographer, Jordanne Marie Photographers, designed them using one of our engagement pictures. Adam and I found a calendar looking design a while back, and loved how unique it was.

I have always wanted the save the dates to be magnetic, so when a basic save the date came with our photography package, I decided I would just have to add a magnet myself. So I headed to Michael's with my 40% off coupon in hand and purchased some magnetic tacky dots. These were extremely easy to use, just peel off the paper to expose the sticky part, and stick them onto the back of the save the dates.

Next came the envelopes. I thought it would be cute to put fingerprint hearts on each envelope. I bought an inkpad and then Adam and I got to work. We both contributed a fingerprint to each heart for personalization.  

I LovE how our save the dates turned out! I was a very proud bride when they were all completed. I was so excited to get these suckers into the mail and to our guests. I guess I'm just nerdy like that!

What did you do to make your save the dates more unique or personal?
