Save the Dates!

With our wedding only 6 months away I had to send out our Save the Dates this past week. If the next 6 months are anything like the past year, it will go by uber fast! Since our wedding has a southern vintage vibe I wanted our STDs to reflect this as well since they are said to set the tone of your wedding. After agonizing over this Etsy designer and that Etsy designer for months I finally found a STD that I loved (Etsy has become my most LOVED resource for all party planning….if you aren’t on board with it yet then you should be!) After I tweaked it all a little and collected everything I needed, I got to work and gave them a personal touch. First, I cut the edges of the original cardstock…..

Next I got my heavier, cream colored cardstock that I ordered from Bella Rose Craft  to use as a backing for a sturdier overall piece. With a little rubber cement and time they were starting to come together.

Finally, I stuffed the envelopes I ordered here and they were ready to be addressed and mailed out!


Such an easy and fun project!

Helpful Hint: If you ever use rubber cement ALWAYS use a rubber cement eraser! I discovered this handy little crafting tool a few years back in one of my Graphic Design classes and IT.IS.AMAZING. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!


Southern Weddings Magazine….let me count the ways…

I have been a fan of Southern Weddings Magazine well before I got engaged and I became even more of a fan when my very dear friend’s wedding was featured in their hardcopy magazine this past year, V4!! (You can buy your issue here.) Here are some of the AH-mazing shots from her wedding courtesy of Adam Barnes Photography.

That's me on the far left!


It was such an honor for Rachel to have her wedding featured in such a prestigious southern weddings bible like Southern Weddings Magazine and it was an honor for all of us bridesmaids as well. That is why today I was happy to find that my little ‘ole blog was selected to be one of Southern Wedding Magazine’s Bride Bloggers!

I am beyond excited and I am hoping this will keep me accountable for keeping up with my postings. You can see the complete list of all the southern brides-to-be here.
