Yay for military families! I wasn't a military brat, but now I know ALL about the moves In fact, I have to move two weeks before the wedding Luckily, it's only 1 1/2 hours away from where I already live in Germany...and my Mom is coming for backup!

Save the Dates

I know I promised more details today!

I usually like to follow a well-ordered process when telling a story (a bit OCD..yes!), but I will vent that I still haven't gotten my contract and I am less than 5 months out!!! I really want that done, so my guests can start making plans!

So, I spent today putting together a wedding website and my own Save the Dates. Bear in mind, I wanted the STDs FAST (since my DFTW ones aren't coming quickly enough to suit me), so I put together a photo thing on zazzle.com

I have a Mac, and I tried using iPhoto, but I liked the end result better in Zazzle and it was cheaper! 100 for $65 (30% off) and I used a code (CUSTOMER1006) to get free shipping ($16.99 savings!)

I took one of our engagement pics, put it in Keynote (like Powerpoint), added Disney font...and voila Then I exported it to iPhoto and uploaded it to Zazzle. I added text, to include the website I created, on the back. I can't show that, since I don't actually HAVE them yet.

What do you think?



Here's the website:

http://web.me.com/heidi.anne/Wedding

Okay...more tomorrow! Good night!

Thanks! I'm six hours ahead of WDW. I've been staying up WAY past my bedtime! A bit of a DISboard obsession, I think

Don't worry. I didn't read the manual, either. I just knew I couldn't put text on a photo in iPhoto (or didn't know how), so I did it in Keynote. Then, I happened to be looking at the menus and saw "Send To" and there was iPhoto! How convenient!

Thank you! It's one of the Roots' e-pics they took of us. It was convenient that it had a lot of sky showing, so I could put the text!

The STDs turned out great; I used Zazzle for our custom stamps and they were fantastic.

The web site really is wonderful. The colors are so engaging and the information for your guests is really helpful. We did a tea at the Gardenview Room the weekend of our wedding and the ladies loved it! We even bought hats to wear for the occasion

I'm glad y'all like them! I'm so proud that they're budget (particularly with the free shipping coupon!), since I don't think any other part of the wedding will be!!

I really am not nearly as crafty as some of you probably are...that's why I LOVE my Mac. It makes me LOOK artistic

That's the worst part of all this! Most of you are probably more interested in these details than some of my guests will be!!! It's not fair that we can't have it all Seriously, though, I agree with you. I'd love to be a guest at ALL the weddings I see here. So many creative, beautiful touches!

I just got an email that my contract is here for my review (go figure!), so I better look at that and get dinner cooking before I write any more. I hate cooking for one...anyone feel like comin' over for dinner
