The Save the Dates

After a couple of weeks of hard work, the Save the Dates are ready to send. Michael was a HUGE help. The magnets you will be receiving in the mail in the next few days were ordered from Magnet Street Weddings. I HIGHLY recommend them! They are wonderful to work with, their prices are very reasonable, their work is AMAZING, and they had my order to me early.

We made the hotel information cards that are coming with the Save the Dates. I ordered some shimmer paper (my new obsession) that actually matches the shimmer paper that is part of our invitation. I was also able to find the EXACT ribbon that is on our invitation and used it on the hotel information card to tie everything together. It turned out great! It took me forever to get those cards just so. Kinkos was a GREAT help because the cardstock shimmer paper is too thick for my printer so they printed them for me and after speaking with Julie (a friend and fellow bride-to-be), she told me they would also cut them for me. MAN DID THAT SAVE ME A LOT OF TIME! The ribbon took the longest but it was definitely worth it. Yesterday I took the Save the Date, envelope and the hotel information card to the post office and luckily it was standard postage! GREAT NEWS!!!! I was worried because of the thickness that is added when you attach ribbon. Anyways, all is good now!

This is the BEAUTIFUL ribbon that is with our invitation (and our hotel information card). We are finding ways to incorporate it into other aspects of the wedding :)

This is the save the date.
