Save the dates and your money!

So, I can't lie, Ben and I had been talking about getting married for a while.  So much so, that he had basically said by the end of next year, 2014, I'd be wifed up.  So of course, thanks to Pinterest, I had been browsing some different save the date ideas and thinking about taking awesome engagement photos when the day came.

Well the day came, and I realized we're not broke, but we certainly don't have a ton of money to shell out for a wedding and especially engagement photos.  Then I stumbled upon this bad boy. It was perfect.  I made up a template pretty similar to the one on the site and we spent an afternoon in the Arizona heat, trying to capture the perfect photo to use.  I am beyond excited about how they ended up!

I'm working on documenting my wedding better so sorry about the crummy picture to start.  I promise the photos will get better!

We spent $17 ordering the photo sticker books and shipping and probably $5 for the card stock.  Overall this was super easy and super cheap.  I've also had a ton of positive feedback from relatives and friends!  Even my great aunt, who is 93, understood and loved them.

So there's the first installment of my wedding DIY, hope you'll stick around for some of the later developments.  We have invitations in the works along with lots of wonderful decorations!
