Today marks my 6 month wedding anniversary with my husband. I was not a typical bride – I hated almost every minute of planning my wedding and am so relieved it was over. But there are a few things I really enjoyed putting together, and one of them was our save the dates.
We have been to at least 20 weddings together since we started dating in February of 2012, so we definitely had an idea of what we wanted. I knew I wanted a magnet save the date so I could be on the refrigerator of all our friends and family for several months. I knew I wanted to find a save the date that slowly revealed our travel theme. And, because by now you all know me, I wanted to find some place where I wouldn’t spend a ton of money.
When it came to our wedding, there were so many things I knew instantly that “it was the one” – whether it was my dress or our DJ (I think I spent more time debating over the cake than anything else). The save the date was one of those things I just knew. We went with the Sealed Hearts Save the Date in Flint, as you can see in the photo.
I like the Wedding Paper Divas allows you to mock up your save the date on-site, but what was even better was the fact that I could get a proof sent to me. I had a lot of words that simply didn’t fit on the mock up (I blame my husband’s long first name), but I was able to list them in the special instructions, and get a proof sent straight to me to review before printing.
At the time, I had found a deal on Gilt City, which allowed me to get $100 for $200 to Wedding Paper Divas. Unfortunately, those deals cannot be combined with an existing sale, so if you are in the market for wedding supplies, you will probably be just as good with a sale over at Wedding Paper Divas. I warn you with this because I had been determined to combine offers since a friend had done so the year prior, so you do not need to go crazy searching for a voucher and a sale at the same time.
