I feel like I haven’t updated you on wedding planning in a while so I think today is a good day to do just that.
First of all things are going swimmingly. I have all of the big stuff taken care off and I have a constant fear in the back of my mind that I am forgetting something. I have been told by many this fear is normal and only gets worse closer to the wedding. Awesome!
In July we had our engagement session, originally I didn’t want to do an engagement session. Anything to save an extra couple bucks, but our fantastic photographer insisted that we do it as a way for him to get to know us as a couple.
So since we had over 200 pictures of us just laying around I figured I should use them for the save the dates.
I wasn’t looking to spend a fortune on the save the dates when the formal invitations would not be cheap.
Thanks to Julie for blogging about her wedding planning I found the amazing website that is wedding chicks.
On the site they have free printable and I found a save the date that was geared toward our general wedding theme which is garden party and a little bit vintagey.
Emailed it off to a printer and within 3 days I had my save the dates for less then $100.
In case you didn’t notice our color scheme for the wedding is coral and turquoise.
For those who are married/getting married did you send out save the dates? Where did you make them?
I have one big thing left which is deciding on a cake, I have looking on pinterest but if anyone has ideas or suggestions please leave them in the comments section, I would love the help! Ideally I am looking to something simple and tasteful.
