Remember back when I showed you a teaser for our engagement pictures? My friends at Traynor’s Photography gave me the rest of our pictures over the weekend!
And, just like us, our pictures are goofy, ranging from mildly silly …
… to completely ridiculous.
We chose to use a fun picture for our Paperless Post save the date, also. Why not have a little fun with them? A shot like this is much more us and much more interesting than a serious posed one anyway, don’t you think? Plus, it’s been said that your wedding stationery helps set the overall feel and expectations of your wedding day, and we think it’s necessary to include a picture that’s totally representative of who we are.
I think save the dates are a great way to be a little more casual. Only your very close relatives are really thinking about what they need to wear to your wedding, so there’s no need to worry about conveying the formality level of your wedding this far out if you don’t want to. Mix it up!
One of the things I notice about wedding planning is the amazing accrual of stuff — from planners to printouts to swatches, you have stuff that you’re toting around to various meetings, fittings and brunch with the ladies. It would certainly be nice to have a place designated just for wedding stuff, because everything should have a place, right?
Etsy seller Digital Printsess makes sturdy, tough (go on, put it in the wash) and super cute tote bags that can get the job done. And she designed one for a little show you might have heard of … “The Bachelorette.” Digital Printsess‘ bags appeared in Ashley Herbert and JP Rosenbaum’s wedding special.
Aside from making these super awesome and customizable totes — I can totally see carrying this one while honeymooning on the beach — Digital Printsess also creates beautiful save the dates and invitations. Oh, and she’s totally Broke-Ass friendly: the totes start at $20 (bridesmaid gift, anyone?) and her save the dates and invites start at $15 for the digital file.
And now to the good stuff: You can score a Digital Printsess tote of your own which can be customized with your own info!
