Save the Dates, Invitations, Programs & Thank You's

If you are going to DIY:
Go to Hobby Lobby, Michael's and/or JoAnn's

If you are going to have them made, forget online (the thickness of the paper is usually thin and will feel cheap, along with poor print quality - in general) and forget Zurchers (they have cheap, uninspiring, cookie-cutter invites that probably haven't been updated since the 1980's - not that the 80's are bad by any means)... =)

Call Jessica at Minute Man Printing

It's a small, mom & pop shop, where the daughter, Jessica, has TONS of ideas and does every Bride's invitations differently. She has a box full of origional invitations she has made for her brides, and her creativity is endless! She will use your vision and make it a reality!

The front of our invitations (including envelope with home made address label printed on clear labels from office depot).

It opens to show the wording and more photos.

The back included our wedding website from (which you can see HERE), the email address we were having people RSVP to, as well as our registry on

Here are our wedding ceremony programs (front and back)!

 Here are the thank you postcards Jessica with MinuteMan Printing made...we went with post cards because postage is cheaper, we could still include photos, and we wrote a "thank you" message in marker, she scanned it and put it on the card so it was like we wrote it, but only once instead of 300 times! (I also had return address labels made at

  1. These are all great ideas! I never did see/get your ceremony program lol-bummer, it looked cute from what I see on here!
    I would also suggest for DIY brides to check out Paper Express! They have the cheapest paper for those looking to print at home! Then they charge $1 per cut we just took it all back in after printing and they cut everything apart w percision for like $12!
