Save the Date, Save Money?

by Brittiny

I think I may have figured out an awesome way to save money while saving the date. Here's what you'll need to complete this easy project:

* a google account
* pictures of you and your fiance, your reception site, etc
* an idea of accommodations for out of town guests to include
* everyone's email address

Yep, that's it. No fancy software, no learning curve, nada! Here are the steps to creating your very on slide show save the dates:

1. Log into your google account or create one at google .
2. Click on the documents tab, it will open a new window.
3. There is a drop down tab labeled create new, click on that.
4. You would like to create a new presentation.
5. You can begin working on your document from there adding new backgrounds etc....
6. BUT I'm lazy and decided to see if someone else did the work for me :o)
7. Sure enough after searching for wedding in the template section, I found Tony and Rita's wedding album and decided to use the template by clicking the button entitled use template.
8. After deleting a few pictures that I didn't need and the first page, I was able to complete my email-able slideshow for my guests.

Total Cost: $0.00!!
Here's the completed project, so let me know what you think!

What's really cool beans is you can upload it to youtube and have music playing as your guests watch it!! That's not my idea, but another person on a board I visit did hers to music and the response was well received!!!

Great idea! Another great way & very inexpensive (*free*) is to send an Evite from !

It may sound tacky - but it is great for long distance guests etc. A friend of mine, sent it as " A surprise- Im engaged" gesture- it was a hit amongst all her friends to get a invitation for what we thought was just a regular party - but instead a party of the engagement kind!

@philly: thanks girlie!! It was soo easy to do!

@quiana: totally!! the party sounds so fun and cool!! that totally works if I decide to do any parties or something like that for my OOT guests...

@wisejamaican: glad that I can help!!!

I am glad that everyone loves these as much as my family did! They all said that it was very fun and easy to navigate and that it looked professionally done. The best part about it to me was it was PRICELESS ($0.00!!)

Hey it is really very important to register all before to save time and money both. You just need some proper intention to target a date.
