Our Save the Dates

Last night I came home to an apartment filled with friends, laughter, and bottles of wine. It was just what I needed. And it gave me the perfect opportunity to deliver the rest of our save the dates!! Now that (almost) all of the save the dates are out of our hands, I can share them with all of you!
With your help, we were able to pick out a picture from our save the date session with Nicole. Then we tricked our invitation designer into helping us come up with a design for the save the dates that is cohesive with our invitations and overall vision for the big day. Everything was uploaded to Vista Print and after entering 2 coupon codes I found on the internet, I got 130 save the dates and envelopes for under $50. Yes, I said under $50.
(please give all credit of the images to me, if you use these images in the future. information has been blurred for privacy purposes.)

We used a plum background and incorporated elements of our monogram in a watermark and through using the same font. Clearly, this picture was the favorite, so we just had to put it on there.

(again, please excuse the excessive amount of blurring that was performed)

More than half of our guests will be from out of town, so it was important for us to include information that they might find useful. The back of the save the date (which I now found out can be printed in color for just pennies more! Oh well...) includes ceremony and reception venue information, the address of our wedding website, and instruction on how to make hotel reservations for the rooms we blocked off.

So far, the save the dates have been a hit. What do you think!?

SubBlog:
Quickfire question...what do you do if your a bride and have an allergic reaction to amish bread?

To address the "SubBlog" above. I came down with hives this weekend. Yes, hives. We think it is an allergic reaction to the bread my mother bought from a farmer's market this weekend. Let's just say that I cannot imagine what I would do if I came down with hives the weekend of my wedding. Knock on wood.
