Wedding Planning [Save the Date]August 07, 2013
It's already August and to say that we have done a lot of wedding planning would be a lie. In our defense though the wedding is still 10 months away and although I have had good intentions life decided to throw me a monkey wrench that came in the form of surgery. Luckily, I have a maid of honor who is all over this wedding planning business and has been searching high and low for bridesmaids dresses. It is surprising to me how hard it is to find bridesmaids dresses in the color mint. Isn't mint like the new color obsession right now? Aside from choosing our wedding party, deciding on the location of the ceremony + reception hall, and picking our colors, we haven't done much else.
I also spent the last couple of days looking around for the perfect save the date card. Eric and I settled on sending out online save the dates because they are inexpensive and only require our guests email address which saves me from the hassle of addressing 100+ envelopes. It didn't take much to convince me to go the online route considering we are paying for majority of our wedding ourselves and in the whole scheme of things, a save the date is simply just a date. I was extremely excited to find the perfect one so quickly and to say that I LOVE it would be an understatement. I don't know what it is about black and white but I seriously love everything about it!
I couldn't resist showing you guys an exclusive sneak peek at our lovely save the dates!
