Wedding Wednesday....The Save the Dates!

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Here it is!! The post I have been waiting to share to each and every one of you for what seems like forever... the save-the-dates are officially out {well, except for the few stragglers that I still need addresses from!}, and I am SO excited about the end product.
You all are well aware that I am crazy obsessed with paper/invitations/stationery and this is one specific item on my wedding list that I was not willing to just simply "settle" on. I searched for months--literally--as soon as we got engaged to find the perfect save-the-date design.
Now before I get ahead of myself, trust me, there are some fantastic places out there for beautiful STD's...Wedding Paper Divas, Minted, Red Stamp, Hello Lucky, Cheree Berry, Betsy White, Wiley Valentine, the list goes on and on, but none of the stores and/or websites I found had everything I was looking for... the postcard type design with a southern vintage look with one of our engagement photos on it coupled with the right font, text, etc... that is until I stumbled across the uber wonderful Joni from Chocolate Butterbean.
I began talking to Ms. Joni way back in April as we discussed options, ideas, the look and color scheme, and all the other little details I wanted to incorporate into our save-the-dates.
After we had a gameplan in order and knew our direction, I knew they would be everything I wanted AND more...so without further adieu, here they are:
One big pile of save-the-dates!
A closeup of the finished product....ahhh swoon!!
Me and Prince Charming...our stuffing party at my parent's house!
Addressed, stamped, and ready to go!
 A close up of the envelope... simple handwriting {are you shocked??}
Don't worry--formal calligraphy for the actual invitations 
 Going up on the fridge!! I love them SO much--thank you Joni
So, what do you think??? It conveys EVERYTHING about our wedding that I want... a link to access our wedding website with all the additional details and necessities, the formal cursive handwriting, the fun and grabs-your-attention font for the date, the faded black and white design with a hint of a yellow border that highlights our wedding colors, and our lovely little picture from our vineyard engagement shoot--these little details make my heart happy!
