Save the Dates

Since everyone should have gotten them by now...I figured I would show you all our awesome save the dates that we sent out last month for our wedding later this year! I found so many neat ideas on Pinterest, but the scratch offs we just HAD to do...you know, since Main Man loves his scratch tickets so much :)

So I had very loose ideas on what I wanted, and went to my cousin Emma for her help. Emma has a graphic design degree and offered to design anything I needed for the wedding...and as you can see, she is a talented little lady :) I told her I wanted the wedding colors (grey and yellow) incorporated, wanted the date to be scratched off, and gave her a couple photos to choose from (the one pictured is from the cruise we took last February).  From there...she had all the creative license to do whatever she wanted and I couldn't have been happier with her results!

I used a small, raised, circular sticker to affix a penny to each card for people to scratch the dates off with...and when I asked Main Man for his extra change he cringed at the thought of me needing 200 pennies to send with them...until he realized that was only $2. It literally made my week :)

If anyone needs anything designed or printed in the future, you can contact Emma at emmadale30@hotmail.com and I'm sure she will make you just as happy a camper as I am! I can't wait to see what she comes up with for the programs....oh, October is coming at me very quickly....
