A great place to begin personalizing your wedding is with the save the dates; while wedding stationery is often quite formal, save the dates give you the freedom to be a bit more quirky and fun. Now, you don’t need to send save the dates–depending on how soon you’re getting married, and the number of people you’re planning on inviting, they might be an unnecessary expense. However, if you’re six months or more out from your wedding date and you’re planning on inviting a number of people from out of town, save the dates are a great way to ask your friends and family to keep you in mind as they make plans for both the time and expense of travel. It’s also a great place to include your wedding website information if you’d rather not include it on the formal invitations. I know that as soon as I receive a save the date, I tack it up on the fridge so as not to forget–and looking at any of the following save the dates would make me smile every single time.
Seriously, how cute are these? So stinking adorable!
It takes the alloying of two metals to create rose gold: gold and copper. When blended together, they make a gorgeous pink hue that’s not only romantic, but also symbolic of the merging of your lives. On-trend for 2014 but also a classic, the blush tones of a rose gold wedding will be warm, inviting, and nothing short of breathtaking. To prevent rose gold overload, try mixing with cream…or for a fun pop of color, mint!

BABs, let’s talk paper. There’s a lot of paper involved in weddings, from checklists, to contracts to the copious amount of dollar bills you shell out, to your invitation suite: the pièce de résistance of wedding paper.

But Broke-Ass partner MagnetStreet takes the pain out of paper products and helps you keep some of your hard-earned cash in your wallet.

I know, I know, it’s mid-November, but Wedding Paper Divas just released a gorgeous new collection of Spring & Summer invitations, and we just had to share with our spring and summer brides-to-be. (Sorry, fall and winter BABs. We still love you.) Wedding Paper Divas specializes in beautiful, customizable photo invites (like the one seen above) and save-the-dates. Of course, if you don’t want to plaster your mug on your formal wedding invitation, they also have some of the most modern looking “traditional” invites in the biz…
I LOVE these striking, watercolor bleed “Blooming Together” invitations – they’re truly eye-popping.
What’s the consensus, warm weather brides – do these bits of stationery strike your fancy? Have you found your ideal save-the-dates or invitations at Wedding Paper Divas?
Holy hand cramps, Batman! Now that you’re engaged, you’re probably sending more mail than you have ever before–party invitations, wedding invitations, thank yous, contracts, payments–and that means one heck of a lot of hand-written envelopes. Save yourself some pain and get a return address stamp from RubberStamps.com! Each self-inking stamp lasts for thousands of impressions, so you’ll be able to use it long after the wedding is over, and unlike printed labels, you never have to worry about running out! RubberStamps.com has tons of different designs (there’s even one with a bitty baby pug, yes yes yes!!) so you’ll be able to find a design that fits your style. They even have different ink colors so you can pick the one that best coordinates with your invitations! Seriously, say no to hand cramps and say yes to a return address stamp from RubberStamps.com–it’s one of the most economical ways to save yourself both time and effort during the wedding planning process!

InviteSite, creators and purveyors of beautiful, sophisticated, and eco-friendly invitations has a conundrum: They’ve got a brand-spanking new letterpress & photograph design, but in order to showcase it on their site, they need to print it first. But why print it with a photo of their employees (attractive though they may be) or models when they could use a photo that showcases actual, real, love? This is where you come in, BABs! InviteSite wants to use one of your engagement/couple photos on their invitation design, to be showcased on their website forevermore, and in exchange, you’ll receive 100 FREE stunning letterpress invites! This isn’t a popularity or beauty contest: the winner will be, as always, chosen at random…but in order to win, you MUST post your photograph/a link to your photograph in the comments.
