Our DIY Save The Date Cards

11:17:00 PM

We went at Kasalang Tagaytay Bridal Fair last July 31 at Marina Bay Sands, we met Kenneth Uy, randomly we asked him, what is the advantage of having printed invitations and he told us one point that we didn't think before, "Ang matatanda kapag walang invitation hindi sila pupunta, hindi nila mafefeel na invited sila".

A few days later, I asked W@W December Brides support group for suggestions if they have their Save The Date cards printed, some have it printed at least 20 pieces, some just send it through Facebook, Whatsapp, etc.

Then, EJ and I talked about it, our main invitation is scheduled in October. And since we will have a 2 days vacation in Pinas this month, we thought of giving them a Save The Date cards printed first, especially to our Ninong/Ninang and immediate family. My cousin Sheryl can bring some cards too as she will be back in Bohol end of August.

I knew from the start that we wanted to make our own wedding website and invitations. Not because we can do these stuffs, but because this is the only DIY we can do to add personal touch.

Layout, brainstorming, choosing fonts and browsing designs inspiration were very time-consuming. All is beautiful. All cards are perfect. You can't get away from feeling overwhelmed.

So, Ej and I shared our task, he did the map and I did the layout. I showed him several mock-ups in selecting fonts and fonts pairing. As much possible, we wanted minimalist, plain and simple.

While designing, we are thinking of our mom's as inspirations. We believed they will be loved to see florals instead of just plain marbled or white textured card that we prefer.

Last Tuesday, we send it to Unusual Print, a printing shop in Bras Basah Complex, we waited for two days and taraaaan!! :) We are happy, we have our Save The Date cards ready!

We will just need to buy envelope cards in National Book Store and give these to them.

We printed 30 pieces, 300 gsm paper, double sided print for $30, parang piso isa! They extend their generosity and gave us some extra prints.
