After seeing a lot of invites using the Gocco, I knew I had to have one! But then I got so excited to use it, that I decided to try it out on my Save the Dates first!
Since my fiance proposed in the most amazing way, while scuba diving in Honduras, I wanted to incorporate that into the Save the Dates. I also loved the stringed date Save the Dates that I saw, but I had problems with the numbers getting tangled when pulling the ribbon out, so I decided to mat the dates on squares that I cut out on my Cricut, and it worked out really well. I have included the paper flowers in a lot of my DIY items for my wedding, so it was an easy decision to add them to the Save the Dates. I also added magnets to the back of the flower and the main portion, to make it easy for our guests to hang them on the fridge. At the last minute, I decided to add the envelope liner to add a little more to the whole look. It was a pretty simple addition.
What do you think?

You are one of my favorite DIYers! I’ve already “borrowed” your ribbon wands and some of your signs! THESE ARE AWESOME!!!! Any chance you would be interested in making some of these for me (seriously)? I’ve learned the hard way that DIY takes a LOT of time, and time is something that I’m short on!!!! I’ll send you a private message right away!
Oh and great proposal! Did he actually propose underwater? Sounds magical to me!

Thanks ladies! I was a bit nervous sending them out (you put sooooo much time and effort into things like this, and you hate to think it was all for nothing), but I got TONS of positive texts/emails/facebook messages from my guests, so it made it all worthwhile 🙂
And yes, he did propose underwater on a scuba diving trip in Honduras….And if that wasn’t good enough, he hired an underwater photographer and videographer, so we have tons of pictures and a video of the whole thing! He did a great job 🙂
