Related Post Game of Thrones wedding details for your totally non-Red Wedding You guys: season six of Game of Thrones happens THIS SUNDAY. Are you as excited as we are? I've remained very spoiler-free, but I havent'... Read more Right from the start, our wedding was destined to involve Game of Thrones, considering we met at a Game of Thrones viewing party. We're getting married at his mom's home, which everyone calls Redwood House, so we realized that, instead of the "The Red Wedding," we were having "The Redwood Wedding." But we still weren't exactly sure how we were going to work in more of a Game of Thrones theme. And then we stumbled into the idea at ComicCon, of course… We attended a party which featured an Iron Throne photobooth that turned your pics into animated gifs. And that's when it hit us: This Iron Throne gif photobooth was about to take our Iron Throne gif engagement photos, which would then become our Iron Throne gif Save the Dates… How to make your own Save the Date gifs: 1. I used PowerPoint to make each gif image. That way I could click through them over and over to see if I liked the order, if the spacing was right, and font size was matching. 2. Create as many "slides" for your gif as you need. I doubled up on the second slide, because I wanted the gif to kind of linger on that particular image a little bit longer. 3. When happy, click "File" then chose "Save as pictures." 4. Upload all your jpgs to a gif maker. I used GifMaker.me because I like their super basic interface. Make sure the speed is right, the size is right, and then hit save. 5. Email them to your guest list. 6. Sit back and enjoy all the super-entertaining responses.
