helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Hello all my dear blog-friends… I’m sorry if it seems that I have disappeared on you. I have had a very busy (and very exciting!) week or two and I have alot to share with you. I’ll start off with my finished Save-the-Dates! :) I ordered these through Overnight Prints. They have a pretty good turn-around time and I am really pleased with the quality of the cards! I decided to go folded card instead of postcard since it seemed that the consensus was split between two options- so I just used them both! Hope you like them! :)

I used my HP C6380 Wireless Printer (Thanks Martha!) to print our monogram with address on the back of the envelopes, as well as to address the front of the envelopes. I think they turned out great- and it was a great alternative to handwritten calligraphy which is beautiful but expensive. I am so pleased with how they turned out and have been so happy to hear positive feedback from our guests as they receive them!

    How gorgeous! I was about to be very impressed with your calligraphy skills, then read you printed them– do you mind sharing what font you use and where you found it? I’ve been toying with the idea of printing the addresses on our wedding invites but wasn’t sure how the font would turn out. This calligraphy font looks awesome!

    These are SENSATIONAL! I think they turned out absolutely perfect and I love that you decided to use the best of both worlds. You don’t see very many greeting card-style STDs out there, but it really works so well! Love love love!

    Hi Jessica. I was very impressed with your Save the Date card design. This is my first visit to your blog and after reading about how you are lacking in style I was shocked by your creativity and great taste! I just wanted to send you a note and also to say I, too, am a Knoxville bride…we’re getting married in Asheville, NC in August.
