I had stumbled on the Wedding Chicks because their wedding blog is full of pretty pictures and great inspiration. But then I was looking around a little more last night I found this amazing section:

Ohhhh...can you see what it is? DIY & Downloads. Hmmm...interesting. So I clicked, clicked, clicked. There's a whole section of free wedding downloads! Guys...FREE WEDDING DOWNLOADS.
Now, Mr. C and I have been going back and forth and back and forth and...(yup, one more time) back and forth about our wedding invitations. I could have sworn they were going to be the death of me. Really what I was looking for was some sort of tie-in. Something that would make all our paper products match, bring some uniformity, and lord knows, I have no freaking idea what to do with any sort of design software (I tried my hand at a free 30-day trial at Illustrator. I quickly gave up). So having these options is great for people like Mr. C and I, because I don't need a fancy-pants design software NOR do I need to pay someone who has and uses some fancy-pants design software.
Here are some of the great freebies that Wedding Chicks makes available:

There are so many options on here, from invitation suites, monograms, signs, cards, and many other things you could think of. It's really a great resource for anyone who is as graphically and financially challenged as Mr. C and I.
So what did we end up downloading?
Have you made any really great (free or cheap!) wedding discoveries lately?
