Anatony of an Adorable DIY Save the Date

Rogue Bride sent out her Save the Dates and lo and behold, I got one! Thanks Rogue! She's a classy lady. Basically, I offered to do her Day-of coordination and the sweetie pie in turn sent me real-deal Save the Dates – like I'm a real guest or something. Awwww. Of course, I have to blog about it. So I called Rogue and asked her to share her tips.

  1. She started with great photography. Rogue searched and searched, and finally found Felici Photography, who, as luck would have it, is an amazing photographer within her price range. Her diligence paid off because her engagement photos are gorgeous, and tell a little story about the couple. Check out their amazingly adorable engagement shoot HERE.
  2. She found free fonts on DaFont.com. She also found doodles and designs there, like the paisley doodle on the back of this Save the Date postcard.
  3. She totally personalized them with subtle details. I commented on the sweet, golden paisley stamp of the back and she told me it isn't a stamp. It's a DaFont doodle. But to get the rich golden color and crafty texture, she took a picture of a beach she and Rogue Groom visited and superimposed it on the design. Not only is the effect amazing, it's also an opportunity for her to tell a story about her relationship.
  4. She used Postcards.com, which is inexpensive and allows you to print your own designs on both sides.

Thanks for letting me share Rogue Bride! ♥ MWAH♥
