Here is our Save the Date card...the back just has some of the package information for our DW...I dropped off the print job tonight and they told me I could pick them up tomorrow at noon.

The graphic designer that did these is a business associate of FIs and FI put in a good word for him some time ago. So when FI asked him to do this and bill it directly to us, he said absolutely not, this was an engagement gift from him. He even sent us to his printer who also refused to charge us.

So I am right on time with my goal to have these puppies out by the first week of February! Yay!

Well, we this is only for the STDs, we are going to have to pay for invitations from wherever we do end up getting them...and I guess since we have to pay postage for them, I will still be spending some money...maybe I should have said for $45 since that is approximately what the postage will be?

It was a VERY nice thing for him and I am so happy that this didn''t turn into some of the horror stories I''ve read about when having people do you "favors."

I am amazed at how "go with the flow" I''ve been up to now and I think even FI is a little shocked. But, I really just want a beautiful wedding, everything else is just details and I never realized how much more important it would be for me to actually be married to my soulmate than what I am wearing or how everything looks. Don''t get me wrong, I want everything to be beautiful, but I don''t want to ruin the process for FI while I try to have everything be perfect.

Besides, it makes me feel like I AM contributing in some way when I am able to get the same service at a much lower cost and I can say to FI: You know how we agreed on $100 for each widget? ... Well, I spent $50 on each! It makes me feel like I am not just out there running up the tab!
