    save_the_date

    Our first official wedding correspondence is going out in a week or two (as soon as I get around to DIY-ing them) — our Save the Dates. Everyone we’re close to knows that we’re getting married. It shouldn’t be a secret or surprise to anyone when they arrive in the mail. It’s also not as if our wedding and getting married doesn’t already seem real; my dress is ordered, our venue is secured, our photographer is booked.

    For some reason, sending out the Save the Dates brings up another wave of the “I can’t believe this is really happening” feeling all over again. I will be both relieved and anxious to drop these bad boys in the mailbox.

    Relieved because that’s another thing to cross off the to-do list (or Trello board, which is what I’ve been using to stay organized but that’s a topic for another day). Anxious because other people are officially involved now — people we love and care about. In other words, elopement is off the table, and there’s no going back now.

    I love wedding planning. I am a solid decision-maker. I am convinced that we are going to have a lovely wedding, and our friends and family will have a wonderful evening. With that being said, there have definitely been a few times where I look at this production we’re creating (albeit a relatively casual one) and think how much easier it would be to run away with my fiance and go somewhere, anywhere, and get married alone and scrap the whole thing.

    But alas, we’re definitely past the point of no return now, and the Save the Dates simply solidify that. From here on out, friends and family are making plans, preparing to attend and we’re preparing to be the centers of attention which is neither of our favorite places to be. Not to mention, it would absolutely devastate my parents, and I’m confident my future parents-in-law as well.

    Our Save the Dates will be on burgundy and kraft brown card stock that we’re purchasing from a local store called Broadway Paper, a rubber stamp from Etsy and some undetermined doodads from Joann Fabrics. We have jute string and ivory lace and we haven’t decided which we’re using yet. I purchased gold and black ink pads as well. I’m looking forward to sharing photos with all of you, dear readers, once they’re completed, hopefully next weekend!

    Have any of the other BAB’s out there felt this way about their Save the Dates?

    Wedding Paper Divas Warmly Written Save the Date

    It's been said that invitations set the tone for your wedding, but Save the Dates serve an entirely different function. They don't have to be anything like the invitations and can be personalized in so many ways -- whether you want to include a photo from your engagement session, tell the story of how y'all met or you just want to be mysterious while also…

    calligraphy

    I make things. It's sort of my deal. Whether it's cooking, painting or Christmas cards, creating things with my hands is something that means a lot to me. I've been struggling to come up with ways to make things for our wedding and still keep an elegant, vintage look. To me, calligraphy is a luxury that's definitely out of our broke-ass budget, but it packs…

    LabelWorks Script Font

    I’ve always been a sucker for details. Little extras. Special additions. Something nice turns into something great with a little extra oomph and as I prepared to send out my formal wedding invitations, I needed that little something extra, so I armed myself with another calligraphy pen, some awesome vintage stamps I purchased on eBay and the sweetest little way to add an extra personal…

    We love Minted -- we've always loved Minted -- because they have stunningly amazing stationery. But when we got word through a little birdie (in the form of an email from Minted) that they were launching Print-It-Yourself wedding stationery, we kind of died a little (in a good way). Because, you guys, this super affordable option to get the gorgeous designs Minted offers up without spending…

    Happy Friday, y'all! Whew ... what a week! I can't believe we're already midway through August! With fall peeking its head around the corner, it's the perfect time to ogle gorgeous, shiny foil stamped stationery ... and we're in luck, as it just so happens that Wedding Paper Divas is knocking a cool 30% off their foil stamped pretties + 20% off the rest of…

    As my wedding date comes closer, I decided I should check in with my invitations. I ordered them way back in January, because I got a killer deal at Zazzle through Groupon (and it looks like it's still going!).  I love them, but they are just a flat card, and need some dressing up. I couldn't mat them, because to save money and paper, I…

As I've sat browsing through some of the new styles this season, I keep finding myself drooling over bright, bold and beautiful designs.
