Satara's Blog About Wedding Planning.. *PICTURE HEAVY*

Recommended Posts

@ LindsayR

 

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I have been taking the planning process so "lightly"!! No stress that is why I also gave myself so long to plan the wedding!! It is also great to have so much time because you can really focus in on each aspect of your wedding individually instead of everything as a whole and rush over it so quickly!!! I have been getting a lot of my DIY projects out of the way that I am able to so there will be no down to the wire!! Like my Save The Dates will not go out until Jan. 2012 but I know how many I will need, my dates, and my location so those can be made now!!!!!

 

I changed my colors a TON at the beginning of my planning!! It happens when you start researching and finding out what you really like as appose to what you thought that you liked!! My one word of advice which I am SO HAPPY I found out so early in my planning process... is to pick what you LIKE and don't let ANYBODY not your mom, sisters, friends etc., etc. persuade you into changing your mind! I had everyone tell me I could not do a "white" wedding.. So I changed my mind and was doing coral & Tiffany's blue but deep down I wanted coral and white.. Well I finally changed it to white and coral and decided it's my wedding not theirs!!!

 

I know you are getting married in Mexico & I am in Jamaica but I am so excited there is someone else for June 2013!!!!! I'm not alone anymore!!!! If you have any questions or you need to vent!! I am here!!! Good luck planning!!!

I honestly felt the same way.. I was going to make them myself in publisher or something.. but then I fell in LOVE with the font on these postcards and I could not find it for the life of me. I honestly think she made it in adobe photoshop like pulled the letters out longer in some places..?!? IDK!! So in my mind i justified it!! HAHA!! And the FI has no idea about our budget!! He just looks at stuff and says "Oh that's nice" haha!!

Hey Sllefebvr-

 

Thanks so much!!! And I know what you mean....my family think I'm crazy because I want to wait until June 2013 to get married but I want the process to be as stress free as possible so I want all the time I can get!!  I also  know what you mean about the colors as well. I really want lime green, turquoise, and purple but my BM didn't seem to fond of my colors!  Oh well..I think thats what I'm going with anyway!! Anway...YAY for finding a June 2013 Bride!!

Thank you for passing along the idea! I am DIYing everything, and have already started accumulating things for the message in a bottle invites. But I love the postcard idea, and think that is going to be the way to go for RSVPs for both DW and AHR (pocket invites for that I think). Very nice invites, though - great find!

See how the back is actually perforated to rip off and is a postcard to send back to you? I saw these in a blog and actual asked a women on here to make them for me who is into graphics design and she said they would only be about $2.50 or so a card!!!
