Thank You Cards and Such...

So, planning a wedding is expensive. There are so many things to do and so many costs that add up... so finding a deal is practically cause for celebration!

One area that I found easy to cut costs was with the invitations and thank you cards... designing them yourself (or, in our case, having an amazing brother-in-law who is a graphic designer do it) and then just paying for the costs of printing saves a ton of money... turns out they charge you a ton for using their templates and stuff. Lame.

So, inspired by Thank You cards that looked like this

we ended up making a sign out of fabric (colored with sharpies) and then took the picture on our wedding day... then sent it to the printer (more on that in a second) and ended up with this

(those shadows are in my house, NOT on the thank you card)

Simple picture, printed on linen paper, with the personal stuff written on the back. And we spent less than a third of everything else we saw online.

We went through BYU's University Press, and it was so ridiculously inexpensive. You don't have to be a student to use it, you set up an appointment with one of the consultants and personalize your paper and sizes and inserts and everything else... it's great.

Because who doesn't like saving a little money?
