helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Reader Emily sent me photos of her save-the-date that she made to share with you all! I love seeing couples getting creative and DIYing their paper products. I thought they turned out really cute!

Here's what Emily had to say about their caricature Save-the-Date:

We are having a very casual laid-back summer wedding on a Sunday afternoon so I wanted our Save the Dates to reflect our personalities. I basically scanned in an old caricature of us that we've had from a trip we took over 3 years ago. It was on my fridge forever and I got the fun idea to use it for our save-the-dates! So I scanned it into Photoshop, added color and then I printed them myself!

Cost: The caricature was about a $5 tip to the guy on the street and the paper and ink cost around $150 for around 200.
The paper was already perforated and scored 2-up notecards from Avery with envelopes included!

Thanks Emily for sharing this with us! Have a DIY project you'd like to share? Email me at jessica @
