Right after we got engaged (or was it even before?) my fabulous future mother-in-law sent me the occasional destination-wedding idea. One idea was for destination wedding invitations… a message-in-a-bottle. That was an easy decision. YES. Within a month or two of saying “Yes” to the invitations, Brandon’s mom had found us a
Ok, I have to be honest, I am that girl…I have always been that girl and even as I age and mature, in some ways, I will continue to be that girl. I don’t like trends and I get quite annoyed when time catches up with taste and subculture becomes the standard.
I have scoured the Internet for destination wedding ideas ever since I got engaged… oh, who am I kidding? I was searching even before then. Since I scrapbook and craft and love all ideas DIY, I was very focused on the stationary and décor possibilities. Other brides may be obsessed with finding
I couldn’t be happier with the way our winter wedding invitations turned out. I think mailing out your invitations is the ultimate realization that “OMG I’m getting married … soon!” We were aiming to send them out at the three-month mark. But, the major project they became got started one week late because
Like many budget savvy brides, I am not having flowers at my wedding. Well, that’s not totally true. My bouquet will be made of real flowers, but that’s it. No flowers on the tables, none for the bridesmaids, none for the groomsmen, none for the decor. Oh, the shock and the horror!
Hi, this is Anna Skye invitation template designer at Download & Print. Today I want to share with you a lovely chevron wedding invitation that you can personalize and print at home for about 30¢ each. The graduated chevron pattern in emerald blues would be perfect for a modern beach wedding. I
One thing I have learned about wedding planning is that when brilliant ideas strike, you just have to run with them. Even though our wedding is still 6 months away, yesterday I was inspired to begin my thank you notes. We received our first gift a week ago and that got me thinking about this
DIY invitations have been one of the biggest projects I’ve tackled, and I’ll be happy once every single one is sent out. Each step was more time consuming than I ever thought, and since I’m somewhat of a perfectionist, having people help kind of made me nervous. Of course it’s very much appreciated and
For reasons I don’t quite understand “What are your wedding colors?” is one of the first questions you’ll get as a REP (Recently Engaged Person). I’m not sure why so many people are interested in this particular detail, but it comes up all the time, which means it’s something you need to
So I’m having a wedding in less than a year that will be out of town for most all of my friends and family, what is one of the most important things to do as soon as possible in this situation…send save the dates! Ok, so originally this didn’t make much sense
It is getting so close to wedding day (less than 20 days away now) and I had one last DIY project before I hung up my scissors. I decided to make our wedding programs! Remember when I took on the giant task of making our save the dates? As much as I
Hello hello! So I have a bit more to add about invitations… I realized last week if I talked about EVERYTHING I would have been rambling on for-ev-er, so here is Invitations Part 2! Mini recap: this is how I tied everything together: …but there were a few more TOTALLY budget friendly
Ok so a bit ago I shared how I got my invitations from Wedding Paper Divas. Can I tell you how happy I am with them?! I love them. I wanted something elegant and romantic and traditional and these are SO it. But I didn’t want to just stuff them all together
About two-months ago we had (basically) decided on the design and layout for our invitations but somehow the actual “making them” part fell to the wayside. We revisited the invites when we realized that we had planned on getting them out into the mail by the first week of August and that
I made my own Save the Dates (and Derek helped) and I am SO thrilled with how they turned out! I am also thrilled with how much they didn’t cost us! (Besides the hours of intensive labor) the 150+ cards we made cost close to $50. That’s all! And more then likely
