Save the Dates + Wedding Update

A few of you sweet thangs have been checking in on me and asking how wedding planning is going. Well, aren't you dears! I figured I would fill in all of you curious friends as I share our save the date postcards!

I have been working with the fabulous D.H. Fitzgerald Designs on Etsy to create our very own version of their State Save the Dates.

I absolutely love modern, funky designs! Although I think satin ribbon, scripty font, and pearl sheen invites are very pretty, they are just not "us".

So we are breaking out the Crate & Barrel-esque design in mustard yellow (my fave color... obvi) and charcoal... I love them!

Although they are still a work in progress, and this is only one of the first drafts, I couldn't be more excited!

Here is a generic image of the back of the postcard. Fonts will be changing to match our design.


Here is a list of all of the things we have checked off of our list...

+ reception venue
+ church
+ ceremony officiant
+ caterer
+ photographer
+ florist
+ wedding dress (eek! I love it!)
+ our wesbite
+ selected save the dates
+ finalizing guest list (so close!)

To be checked off soon...

+ finalizing block of hotels
+ rehearsal dinner venue
+ men's suits
+ bridesmaids dresses
+ flower girl dress
+ order invitations
+ choose a cake baker

...and many DIY activites to come!! :)


If any of you have any great sites/info on DIY wedding or budget wedding websites we would appreciate it!

Also, honeymoon suggestions needed!
We really love Antigua, but we are open to hearing more options!! :)

And... because talking about our wedding puts me in a good mood... for today only - 30% off all sponsorship ads with promo code 'MEGWEDDING'!

You guys make me so happy! Lots of love!

  1. these are gorgeous! I absolutely love them!!!

  2. Love your save the dates! You have been quite the busy little thang!

  3. How fun are these! I love that you decided to go with your own style instead of caving into something more traditional :) I can't wait to see the finished product!

    You should definitely come link up for Wedding Wednesday Meg! I'm so excited to follow along and read all about your wedding plans.


  4. love these! they're really cute and so you!

  5. Those look adorable! & I will definitely be purchasing ad space :D

  6. We just got back from Isla Mujeres, Mexico and it was gorgeous!! They have an all inclusive plan too that all your drinks, mini bar, room service and food from 3 different restaurants are all included. E-mail me if you want more info about it.

  7. I looove those! Very unique. :)

  8. So exciting! I can't believe how much you've already accomplished! My fiance and I are the same way about not doing the script/super fancy designs even though they're so beautiful sometimes.

    I personally think Antigua would be a fabulous place to go for a honeymoon. I've been there on vacation and it was so, so amazing! Email me if you want any details about things to do there.

  9. Oh I love those!! They look kind of similar to ours-- I loved doing a postcard instead of card with envelope. Holy cow, girl-- you've gotten SO MUCH done so quickly!!

    We're going to a Secrets resort in Jamaica (it was cheaper to fly there than a lot of other places). Wherever you go, I definitely recommend an all-inclusive!!

  10. OH MY GOODNESS I AM IN LOVE!!!! Geeeeez, I so wish I could be in two places at once so I could be there to see you and your mister tie the knot! I absolutely love those...they are SO perfect! EEEEK I love all the little details so much! Makes me happy :)

  11. Ohh those are super cute!!!! Can't wait to see more!

  12. Very cute save the date cards! I'm amazed at how much you have done already! You are awesome :-)
