Save the Dates Made!

Now that my sister’s wedding is wrapped up, I’m finally getting mine rolling. It’s only 6 months away and I finally designed Save the Dates thanks to the help of Paperless Post.

They had a library of professionally designed digital cards. I didn’t want to waste paper on sending people paper cards when most people have e-mails and older family members I’ve already verbally told the date.

I ended up choosing a design like this and a fun photo from my sister’s wedding where we caught both the bouquet and the garter. There was a lot of customization options including envelopes, photo filters, fonts and more.

Digital save the dates are also a great way to ask for more information and we’ll be combining this with Postable to build an address book. Paperless Post has this function too, but I enjoyed the layout and functionality of the Postable one a bit better.

I’m so excited to have finally made these and now the countdown clock begins.

I said yes to a dress! 

Yesterday, my sister and I had a double wedding dress appointment at David’s Bridal. I had an idea of what I wanted, and a Vera Wang dress I bookmarked hoping to try on. However, I realized 10 minutes in that their display didn’t have it.

We leafed through dresses and I gave the stylist a list of things I wanted and didn’t want. The moment I tried on an Oleg Cassini with a lot of lace details, I was in love. It was in the higher range of what I was looking to spend, but no other dress I tried on could compare to the feeling of how I felt in it, and how my mom and sister thought it looked on me as well. I said yes to the dress and now I can’t wait to walk down the aisle with it and see what Nash thinks!

Now wedding planning seems a bit more real and my head is reeling with all the things I need to do next.
