National Stationery Show Fun! | The Budget Savvy Bride
The Budget Savvy Bride

Good morning and happy Monday all my budget savvy brides and friends! Posting might be a little light / different this week as I am in full-on paper-lust at the National Stationery Show! I walked much of the show yesterday and saw so many great designs and cards and overall papery goodness! I’ll share a few favorites that I spotted yesterday for you!

This engagement card is adorable and totally cracked me up! It’s by a fellow Stationery Academy Alum Julie Goette of Ten Four Paper. She has an amazing collection of hilarious greeting cards for nearly every occasion imaginable. I seriously loved every one! Here’s a couple of her other wedding/engagement greeting cards (not necessarily for the bride but TO the bride):

 Hilarious, right? Ya gotta love some witty banter/humor :) Julie also has a great collection of modern and bright wedding invitations that you guys should check out!

 

A few other faves from Day 1:

Letter sparklers from Tops Malibu! Spell out your last names, L-O-V-E,   X-O-X-O… possibilities are endless. I think these would be ADORABLE as a cake topper with a sparkly edge during the cake cutting. Very festive, don’t you think?

Also loved these cards from One Canoe Two Letterpress! Most of their invitations and letterpress items are not necessarily budget savvy BUT I absolutely LOVED their work and these cards are great for a wedding gift!

You gals already know about my love for May Designs / May Books. These adorable, customizable notebooks are tres chic and make AWESOME gifts. Not to mention they have a variety of functions. I keep one in my purse at all times – you never know when you’re gonna need to take down a note- why not do it in a CUTE notebook? They recently released a wedding planner version of their notebooks which would really help you stay on track of planning your big day. Another good one to keep around is a budget tracker. I seriously can’t say enough good things about the ladies at May Designs and their products!

 

Well, that about wraps it up for Day 1. I focused mostly on gifty-items yesterday, so coming next will be actual wedding invitation faves! Stay tuned! :)
