I know several people getting married in June (shout out to Tess!), and the minute I got a June Save-the-Date in the mail, I knew the countdown was on before I had to send save-the-dates.
You see, I think that an effective way to wedding-plan is to just do what your friends are doing within 3 months of them completing the task. Saves SO much time and energy.
I got a June Save-the-Date in December, so while my time is not exactly up yet.... I am ready to cross this task off the list.
I went to approximately 2343 different websites and while I found a lot of cute designs, I was lukewarm about most of them.
Luckily, within the same week I got an email from the Wedding Paper Divas. Can you hear the angels singing?!
I have to say, once you plug in your own info... the site makes every design for you if you click on it. Dude, lifesaver.
So, while I am a little bummed that we don't have professional pictures ready for the Save-the-Dates... the designs are cute enough that I'm really thrilled with all of the designs.
Of course... the problem with so many selections is - I have no clue what I want!
I love #1, but I have been afraid of hearts ever since someone made fun of my over-use of hearts on one of my (ok, all) of my folders in high school.
#2 isn't realistic with the photo we're using... but let's just say it was! Cute, right? (Last night before bed, I texted Mr. RH and asked his favorite. Of COURSE he replied #2. I'm all... "BUT IT DOESN'T EVEN WORK WITH OUR PHOTO." His reply? "You are obsessing way too much." Jerk!)
I like how modern #3 is, and I love how bold the date is. I like the blue, too. It feels really un-fussy.
#4 is so pretty and dainty. It's probably a wee bit feminine, but I would counter that weddings are a wee bit feminine.
Something about #5 just screams "fall wedding" to me - love the pink and orange petals, even though there will probably be no pink or orange in our wedding. Maybe some orange flowers.
I thought I liked #6, but now that I've lined them up I think it's too fussy. Also, I wish I had switched that teal to a blue or navy color.
Mr. RH is a fan of yellow, so #8 was my attempt at "doing yellow." I think it'd be much cuter with a different picture... although it's kinda growing on me.
Do you like how I accidentally switched the location of 7 and 8? They are totally in the wrong spot. Duh, I am a genius.
I was going to fix it, but mistakes give my blog character. RIGHT?!
And last but not least, #7. Sometimes Mr. RH may make the accusation that I eat boring for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As long as he doesn't start calling me Sarah Plain and Tall. Anyways, I think this one is a little boring, but I really like it.
So, got any favorites? I can't decide if I should put my top picks on here.... don't want to sway the voting public. If I had to pick one from each group, I'd pick 1, 3, 5, 7. Which is weird because I prefer even numbers. Doesn't everyone?
This is the part where you pick your favorite. Lay it on me!
Happy Wedding Wednesday!
