My fiance and I did this by just printing out on plain white paper in a readable font on two sheets "Save the Date" and "10-10-08" and held them both up in all four pictures making different faces. We just went to the local movie theatre (where there was a photobooth) paid maybe $3 and had our picture. We scanned it, then uploaded it to Kodak.com and had little cards made — it was $60 and some change for 100 cards and envelopes. And voila, done! Everyone loved them, and it was a great way to capture our personalities at that moment while conveying a message. BTW, I love this blog — it's given me hope that a sloppy emo punk like me can still have a fabulous wedding. Reply All I got to say is POWERPOINT! I love it,I am using it. yoou can do so much on it that it is crazy! My fiance and I have decided to send powerpoint wedding invites complete with mini soundtrack. and to those who don't have computers or internet. (yes they Exist) we are making a scaled down version of the P.P.S on word, printing it on card stock and sending it by snailmail. Reply Ok I LOVE this idea! And for those of us who are not as crafty, the video was a huge help 🙂 Now I just need to convince my BF (yeah, no ring yet – but the location and caterer are booked!) to do this. He is a bit camera-shy. I love this because you can send these via snailmail (GREAT idea to use Kodak, Tabs!) or just scan the photos and send via email, which I think we'll do to save a little cash. Yay! Reply […] here, from one of my favorites- Ariel at Off Beat Bride- is a video detailing how you can make your own and you can check out the written instructions from Martha here.

Reply Looks great and personal. I hate that we don't have those photobooth's in the UK :(, ours only print 4 copies of the same shot, and not even in a strip! *sigh*. Awesome for those who can do it though. Reply Where is the video? : ( Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
