Rollin' in the Save the Dates!

Apparently I'm on a roll from yesterday's post because I have another wedding update for today. You know you're excited. Especially because today's post features our Save the Dates!

I have known for a very long time that I wanted to feature our story as our save the date. It just seemed so fun, and I know there are probably a lot of people who don't know exactly how we met or how we came to be a couple. When we decided to do our engagement pictures in March, it just made it that much easier to do the story concept since we wouldn't have any photos in time to do a traditional save the date.

Plus, let's be honest; I like being a little different.

So I set out to design them. And immediately I was stumped. It was kind of embarrassing but I just couldn't decide what I wanted to do. When the possibilities are endless, where do you start?

Well, I'll jump ahead here because I'm sure you don't want to read about how I made my font choices, or my color choices or my wording choices. Let's just say it was very hard and very tedious, but long story short, I came up with something I love. And I'm so excited to share them with the world wide web.

Don't the different colored envelopes make it so fun? Ahh, I'm in love!

Here are some close-ups of the cards in case you want to read them. Cause they're pretty stinkin' cute, if I do say so myself.

And after I had finally addressed each one, stamped them and put the return address on them, I realized something. A bad something. Something I had overlooked...

I didn't put our last names on them. Anywhere. There was no photo, no last name, no nothin'. So if you didn't exactly know who Kati and John were, you were kinda screwed.

So I did what any normal, sane person would do. I wrote our wedding website address on the back of each.individual.envelope. 

Well, each one except for my grandmother's. She gets confused online so I didn't want to bother :)

Happy Friday!

Thanks Sarah! I thought the story would make it fun, and it also made sense since we haven't done our pictures yet.
